Consider the bright side: You will get a 34 hour Reset. Maybe you're going to get something really long distance afterwards? Take advantage of the extra rest. Get off the truck for an extended period.

Little update. After this next load finishes on Tuesday night I will have 27500 miles. So one big trip or a couple good ones.

My trainer says it takes a full week to upgrade to my own truck. I didn't expect that. But it is what it is. Will have to post some pics of the truck I get.

Exciting, nonetheless!

Actually, prior 'Primates' say it takes 'up to' a week to upgrade, but the holidays may have an effect, as well.

Brace yourself, for REALITY, and congrats! :)

ps: Please & YES on the pix, for sure! TY!

So where's the update? Flatbed and tanker do a "boot camp". You need to do the SIM defensive driving course and a bunch of Computer courses. Then you get the truck and load it all up and check out and fix any thing wrong with it.

Did u upgrade yet?

BMI:

Body mass index (BMI)

BMI is a formula that uses weight and height to estimate body fat. For most people, BMI provides a reasonable estimate of body fat. The BMI's biggest weakness is that it doesn't consider individual factors such as bone or muscle mass. BMI may:

  • Underestimate body fat for older adults or other people with low muscle mass
  • Overestimate body fat for people who are very muscular and physically fit

It's quite common, especially for men, to fall into the "overweight" category if you happen to be stronger than average. If you're pretty strong but in good shape then pay no attention.
