    1. Yes, there is plenty of interaction with the instructors. Q&A almost constantly.
    2. Pretty good, if you can learn to manage your time well, and prove yourself then they will run you hard.
    3. I doubt you will have a problem...

    there is no test for lifting or climbing. you need to be able to but honestly i rarly lift anything and the only climbing i do is in and out of the trailer and the truck. so if you can do that then you are golden.

    Depends on what you want to do. They pay for a bus ticket wherever you hail from, but if you fly you'll have to pay the difference in cost of the bus ticket they would get you from what I hear. I took the ol' greyhound myself.

    Basically, depending on when you come in on the week, Monday or Thursday(based on if you have a CDL or not) Your first few days will be all about trying to get you CDL permit if you started on Monday. If you come in on Thursday you will be doing all your paper work for the school along with all the medical screening. Really don't do anything with trucks until the weekend on the backing range will you will back the trucks all weekend long.

    -Play,Spat, and Tigger, hooked myself up pretty nice tonight. Planned this day a heck of a lot better. Staying in a Comfort Suites tonight, pretty #### nice one too up in Bloomington, IL. Get to drop off the load 2 1/2 days early in the Bridgeview yard. Then turn around and head back to Lancaster with the another truck to take back for the sale wagon. LoL Its not been to bad running the Daycab though. Actually pretty nice little truck although not sure pulling 43,000lbs in the thing is a good way to break the engine in.
    It definitely struggles pulling up hill but figure its still pretty new. Had 52 miles on it when pulled out of Lancaster.

    I love the bridgeview yard! Its within walking distance of:
    A. The post office (so I can send out my child support check)
    B. Polecatz strip club (so i can support other single moms)
    C. Walmart (so i can buy top ramen with the pennies left over after visiting a and b)

    Beanz....If your running prostar daycabs with the maxxforce 13 in it, you need to lug it. When I say lug...I mean it. Dont downshift till 800rpms. I know it sounds low but it makes max torque at 1000rpms. Try lugging on your next climb, once you learn the sweet spot you see Playmaker getting smaller in your mirrors.

    Ther reason its pulls at such a low rpm is the twin turbos, Im really starting to like maxxforce.
