Well, I'm bored, and need to restock my retirement head start cash roll. So Friday I applied at Legends, where my last ex-co driver drives for locally, within So. Cali. Sent in all my needed doc's and pics of my FMSCA account.. Showing all 0's nothing on it. All set for 2 days orientation $250 paid, pee test 1st day, results by 2nd day then should be all good for a little drive/parking test, tractor assignment.

When asked what I was looking for, I said NO northern states, like to stay on the I-10 / I-40 route, so they have an open, Dedicated Home-Depot run from Cali to Texas and Oklahoma, great, sign me up! hahaha $0.59 cpm which is fine, 1 penny less than I was getting, I can live with that fine. Told him I can stay out 2-3 weeks at a time, after 3 ya need a lil break from the truck.....At least the sleeper/cab will be only me no teamin' stuff again ( he asked )

From what I KNOW, they do keep up on truck maintenance, Terminal is in Rancho Cucamonga, not far down the Cajon Pass from me. And I will bring tractor home with me as well....Can't wait to get back in the groove again, bankin' them "C" Notes

Terminal:

A facility where trucking companies operate out of, or their "home base" if you will. A lot of major companies have multiple terminals around the country which usually consist of the main office building, a drop lot for trailers, and sometimes a repair shop and wash facilities.

Fm:

Dispatcher, Fleet Manager, Driver Manager

The primary person a driver communicates with at his/her company. A dispatcher can play many roles, depending on the company's structure. Dispatchers may assign freight, file requests for home time, relay messages between the driver and management, inform customer service of any delays, change appointment times, and report information to the load planners.

CPM:

Cents Per Mile

Drivers are often paid by the mile and it's given in cents per mile, or cpm.

Staying home gets boring real quick.

I wonder if not teaming will feel different.

Best of luck and keep us posted.

I can only imagine the horror of having to experience what happened on I-35 in Fort Worth on February 11th.

Found out in the "Welcome Email" things will go fast ! 2nd day after orientations done, will get a truck and DM , and paper work for 1st load ! wow in 2 days hahaha But I WILL need to divert by home to get my stuff to put in the truck. Already called recruiter about this, since am borrowing buds GMC Yukon for orientation, can't leave it parked there for 2-3 weeks !

Recruiters working on it, but should be no problem swinging past home to toss my stuff in and go. Can organize once my drive times done. Especially since I will be allowed to bring the truck home with me, on hometime, another +
