Coming to orientation in Missoula MT. On August 13th 2012!
Yep, I confirmed with Kristy today, I will be joining the Watkin/Shepard crew.
Will be based out of Modesto CA.
(provided I pass the 10 day interview/orientation).

Good luck to you!!! Please keep us posted on your progress.
Quick update on my progress...
Just finished week 2 in school. Only 2 more weeks before I head to Montana!
Last week I took a 53ft box out on public streets for the 1st time, and I am simply LOVING it!
So I now have my DMV test set for Aug 10th.... and have no concerns about passing it..
I am not having any trouble with the shifting, I seam to have picked up on that fast.
But I hear WS has a specific type of shifting that they require?
Such as specific RPM's and such?
Can anyone provide more information on that?
I want to get some practice in before I head to orientation if possible..Last edited: Jul 29, 2012
I loved going to the modesto terminal back in the day. they had a taco truck that was parked accross the street that was good eats and easy on the wallet. Probably gone now tho..
Nope...still there! There's also the bowling alley a few blocks up the road that's I go to and grab a bite.
Word of advice since Modesto will be your home terminal....while on hometime take everything you value out of the truck, they were having a lot of breakins there.
