After a long bus ride from Springfield, Mo to Gary, Indiana I get to the hotel I will be staying at for the next few days. Tuesday was the normal drug test, paper work and road test day. Tuesday I got my physical done and finished up the paper work. Wednesday comes and we are shown how to put on chains, hours of service, fuel by weight and trip planing. I was to met my trainer Thursday am and then leave but I found out that plans have changed. I got a different trainer and she will not be here till Monday. So the new plan is for me to hang out at the terminal help more trailers around and help fuel. During this I have been working on my backing. I am learning but yet board lol Hope the weekend goes by fast, I'm ready to leave.
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.
