I'm sitting at home tonight. I live 10 minutes from the terminal and our truck is headed to the shop in the morning. My trainer is supposed to call for me in the morning.
Right now I'm beside myself with a total feeling of complete lack of confidence. It's two days into training and I'm having the worst problems with the most basic driving skills. My trainer even asked me "what the hell I was doing at school", like I obviously didn't learn anything. I get frusterated and

Cerca - a long time ago.
I was driving a piece of garbage truck - it was a cabover and I don't remember the kind of truck it was, only that it had a 13 speed tranny with a 350 Cummins that were popular in the day.

I was driving late at night through "somewhere", Texas. I wasn't in any town, is why I say it that way. I was looking for a particular place out in the middle of nowhere that I was being sent to to pick up supplies to take back to the border.
I was driving along a narrow, 2-lane highway, the moon was not out so it was pretty dark out there. I was a missionary at the time and basically my truck driving journeys were either for the purpose of picking up donated
National Carriers took me to the cleaners, if you think about working here as a Company Driver or as an O/O you need to run. I understand that there is a law suit out there against National Carriers. Does anyone know who the Attorney is for this class action suit? would like to know. Thx. CR Raider.
