Shameless recruiting response:

Here's a phone number...we are recruiting new drivers in Phoenix. 800-392-2470. You would attend a 10 day orientation in Missoula, Montana. Tell them Tracy Walters in tractor 2533 sent you...in the interest of full disclosure....I get a recruiting bonus.

When I read the title of your post I grinned, because I knew that if you got off early on that day then you had made it through.

Holy mackerel what a ride!!

Just hold on tight, because if you think that part was a ride you've got some real challenges coming your way still. But, it's all good, and if you just keep at it you are going to be a real truck driver before you know it.

Keep us posted.
