Pretty much anyone that has had to leave their state for trucking school.

So how is it going Josh? Everything still rolling along well?

You ain't kidding! Greyhound is by far the most miserable way to travel I've ever endured. Being packed in like sardines is bad enough. But the fact that most of the terminals are in the worst areas of the cities has you watching over your shoulder constantly. Then it's painfully obvious that even most of the Greyhound employees hate their job so they sure aren't about to do anything to make your experience better.

Terminal:

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.

Actually I can't relate. My local private school was less than a ten minute drive from my house.

I do genuinely feel bad....... Wait no, no I don't lol rofl-2.gif

Same here. I drove to my school which was 5 hours away. Totally worth it to have transportation the entire time. I'm already making plans to figure out out how to get to orientation and I can assure you it won't be by bus.

Ha! I hear ya, Heavy C! I was able to stay with a family member who lives a mile from the school. And I'm driving my own car to orientation on Monday. The only dogs I need to deal with are on the end of a leash!
