So I've posted in here a couple of times as I started schooling and passed my test. I have been with my company for 3 weeks now dragging around a Conestoga flatbed with a Fast Track system. I must say... I love my new job and career choice. It hasn't been easy as there is a very steep learning curve with not only learning how to drive in a various situations and driving conditions as well as leaning securement and paperwork. It has been frustrating at times and rewarding all the time. I should have done this a long time ago but I probably wasn't ready anyway. Thank you to everyone at Trucking Truth for the support and encouragement. This place is a wealth of information that I come to quite frequently. Stay safe out there and God Bless.
