Well, just an update. Here at prime looking for an instructor. Seems like this is a lot of right place right time. And I am not a lucky person, used that all up when I won the lottery. So here I sit. Best thing about it is in getting loads of practice time on practicing my pre-trip.

Yep that is true and no I am not getting my passport so that leaves me out of training. Prime would be the only company I would consider training at cause I like the way they train. Trainer up with the student at all times. It's the way training should take place.

True, but damn it is scary to have a permit driver driving your truck.

Well.........That's that, I'm Done!!!

Waiting that is. Finally hooked up with an awesome Instructor today..got out practiced shifting, then, hit up a backing range at Prime East and completed the Straight Line, Offset to both sides, and a Parallel to the drivers side. He also gave me a brief intro on the Alley Dock. Only reason that I didn't do the Passenger Parallel or the Alley was a combination of 2 things. It was Hot as hell and it drained us....and the Alley wasn't scaled right apparently. But as it stands if all goes as planned we'll be hitting the road tomorrow.

I'm here too. Keep hearing people have been waiting 2 weeks for a trainer.

A couple, but most of us are from last weeks class. I will say this. What ended up getting me an instructor is my perseverance, my drive to continue to be out there on the pad even when it felt like it was pointless. He saw me on the pad while working with his last student, How I was always out there working on the Pre-Trip and watching the backing tests.
