Yesterday was my last day training and I tested out passed and got my nice shiny black Peterbilt. Been a long few months but I'm glad it's over. Had fun chaining and tarping a load by myself only took 2 hours 😂😂 haha I'm sure folks like old school know thats a pretty long time especially on a smaller load lol. But it feels good to be out here solo. If I can do it anybody can best of luck to you all. I'll be checking in with the flatbed variety a little more when I get into a better rhythm

Great job Cody! Welcome to the club.

Hey don't get discouraged about being a little slow right now. Every flat-bedder starts out very slow - it just takes a while to get into your own groove of how you like to do things. Plus you're just barely getting started right now so just take it slow and easy. The main thing is that you get your securement right, and be very careful that you don't hit anything. Maybe we will run across each other some day.

Again, great job!
