Starting trucking school at Western Pacific Truck School in Sacramento on September 2nd
run for your life if you even think about Dowell , they well ruin your life, this is one of many companys that are mixed up with the red caps, you can't quit them, you die or go to prison first unless your run fast as hell like we did then you get black balled and find it hard as hell to get a job.
I was sitting in the lobby of the hotel we use in Atlanta the other day (Monday) and a group of seven came in and plopped down in the lobby couches around where I was sitting...
They were very excited and gung-ho about their orientation starting that day with "Super Service".. (an OTR company based out of Ky.).
One of them asked me if I was going to orientation too....
I said - "no, I am going to work in a few minutes..."
For some time it seems to me that saying you're American is like using a 4 letter word. Being in the Army I travel a lot all over the world. I get the briefs about keeping a low profile etc. I'm beyond the point of appologizing for being American.
On my first overseas tour I felt really out of place. I was stationed in Japan, btw I'm 6'1 and very pastie, I stick out just a bit. You know what I learned though. You have to show you are not the stereotype that everyone thinks you
I will be starting with Schneider in about 1 week for training and then OTR. I have 6 months previous experience back in 2006, this is why I have to do the training thing over again - no big deal though, it best to be safe then sorry. Are there any experienced female drivers that are with Schneider who are currently looking for a team partner OTR? The list I have is all males, which is ok but it doesn't hurt to ask around in the meantime
Thanks, comments are
Friday night, I watched "Next" starring Nic Cage on TV.
Nic Cage wasn't as bad as I expected him to be.
(Last of his movies I saw was "Ghost Rider" and he was like a "Zoolander" on a motorcycle, i.e. he was awful.)
I thought the movie was pretty good until the end and then it totally caught me by surprised and it pissed me off that I did not see it coming and it made the flick better.
As a bonus, the very pretty Jessica Biel is in it.
This past weekend, Eva-Mae (my 2 year old daughter) went camping with her babysitter.
She left Thursday afternoon and came back on Sunday after lunch.
My wife (Melinda) was off all weekend long.
And I got home Friday morning and left Sunday before lunch.
Obviously, I did not see my little girl this weekend.
But that is not really unusual as I have been gone 2-3 weeks at a time before.
This time, she's the one that was gone.
Just Melinda and me in
