Been thinking of you today. I have never in my life seen a Celadon truck. Not once. Then today, on my way home from college, I passed by 4. :)

That's a lovely little town. I played my very last high school football game in the playoffs in Great Falls! Of course that was a few years ago lol. And yes, it is very cool to see one's chosen company's trucks back home.

Hey Girl, I will be out there sometime tomorrow If time allows. There is a chance they will have a load waiting as soon as I am done. If I have plenty of time I will swing by to say hi to everyone. I see your in backing now. Tell Paul I said Hi.

I have Paul for driving and Jim for backing. OMG what a long day! I had quite a frustrating time today as I have never done this! I am hoping to do better tomorrow, The group I have is that 3 guys have lots of experience and I have none so I think he may have gotten frustrated with me I am going over the shifting pattern and trying hard to remember that double shift! Also need some help with backing I did ok on straight line first two tries and then my leg was throbbing so bad.. but I will keep at this!!! This was day 1...

Hey, be confident!!! Do not ever doubt yourself. Millions and millions of people have learned how to drive trucks over the years and so will you. Just keep a great attitude, be confident, and learn from everything you do. The fact that you were able to do anything right the first day is a huge success. It will certainly get easier and begin falling into place.

And don't worry about what the instructors or other drivers think. That just adds unneeded pressure. Just focus on yourself and what you're trying to accomplish. As long as they see you're giving it everything you have and you're learning as you go they'll keep working with you and you'll get it just fine. It's the people with horrible attitudes that won't listen and won't learn because they think they know everything - those are the types that get booted to the curb. But if you're giving it your best effort and show them you really, really want to do this, they'll certainly do anything they can to help you.

When you're really good at something - good enough to teach it - you enjoy teaching others if they have the right attitude about learning it. If they're trying their best and listening to your advice, as a teacher you're hoping they'll succeed at it. So just keep smiling, keep working hard, keep asking questions, and make progress each day. You'll have some good days and some bad days - that's just the nature of driving a rig. But don't sweat it. Before you know it things will start falling into place and you'll have it.

Go get em! smile.gif
