Hey guys. its been a while but i finally got a little bit of free time that i don't want to spend sleeping lol. the bus ride out to Tulsa was horrible. Monday was nothing more than some paperwork, physicals, drug tests, and road tests. Today, Tuesday, was all an introduction to load securment. The bus ride out here to Tulsa was horrible and i barley made it in time to get some decent sleep before orientation on Monday. Orientation is 8 days and either next Monday or next Tuesday i will head out on the road with a trainer for 3 weeks. also Josh the guy who teaches load securement and safety director had a "come to Jesus" talk with the class today before we went back to the hotel about if after today if we feel flatbed is not for us then we need to go now. No one has left yet and usually by now a few do. But then again we have a small class of 7. we were supposed to have 8 but one person did not show up. either Wednesday or Thursday the drug tests come back and on Thursday we are officially hired if nothing bad comes back on everyone's drug tests.

That's awe news! Sorry about the bus ride. I talked to the recruiter yesterday and I'll hopefully be out there Nov. 17th

How was load securement class?

Please, let us know how things go on the trainer's truck!

Best of luck!
