Am I going to have to go back to school for my CDL? Where is there a company that will pick me up then let me go back to work.

We can offer you a refresher course.
Dont worry about that...

With 2 people drive afew hours pull-over switch places..

Still roll that truck 20 hours per day on Elogs..

Then again always though what if the Scale ever pulled us back..

Gonna have to explain why ya driving on your teams logs..

Or if I was in the bunk and driving on my hours..

Fortunately "never" happened..

Basically my most "recent" expirience was the Lumber-yard and no OTR ..

They teamed me up for a week to make sure I knew what I was doing

My driver mentor said eh kiddo I know ya can hold your own and hit the dock..

Go "earn" your $7 an hour..

If you’re earning $7/hr you’re doing it wrong.

That was "trainee" pay..

When we got back 4 my "review" he said give him a truck..

Issued a 2001 Freightliner Columbia and in the back of the yard was trailer# whatever

Big thing was could I make it to Texas in roughly 2&half days "Solo"..

Thirty Four "cents" per mile and worked up to 37 cents from there

Better luke warm beer than ice cold **** water
I would disagree other day was hott and humid as heck..

Cut the grass and cleaned my gutters only in that I was "motivated" and the Village tacked a "notice" about grass lenght to my door..

Afterwards I put a tray of ice into my TA big gulp mug and dumped half a 2 liter of R/C cola over that..

I was in heaven

Tired too ate my leftover half a sub and crashed out on the couch
