TEST DAY!!!

It has been several days since I posted last. Not much in the way of deviation from the routine. Pretrip, backing, driving. Pretrip, driving, backing. Did get to bump a dock. That was fun.

Test today 0730. Temp is 12 degrees with winds of 15 or so. Cold!!!

I am a little nervous, but in a good way. Excited to say the least. I checked out of the hotel so no going back!!!

And here we go.

Good to read that today's The Big Day.

Don't overthink it. Remember your training and everything you practiced. Check both mirrors often. Envision the backing movements before you execute.

What are your main takeaways from the school? Where do you connect with your mentor, at the school or at the terminal closest to your home?

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.
