I have come to realize that in my driving adventures, I have never driven solo. I worked for a home entertainment company delivering TVs, etc for 8+ years, and always had a partner. I drove all over the Midwest with a team, 7 days a week for a while as well. SO in this aspect of my upcoming career, I am looking FORWARD to training with a trainer for as long as possible. I am not sure how I am going to handle being alone, since it's going to be new territory. I've always had someone to talk to, share driving/navigating, and keep me company. I'm sure it's just something I'll need to get used to. I would consider teams, but don't want to work around someone else's home time. How do y'all manage the many long hours alone? CB?? Phone? I know I'll miss the time I'll have with my trainer, I get along well with everyone and like to have fun, laugh and goof around, be hard to do that alone. Gonna be different for sure....
