    4/6/2015 was my first day of orientation, so far things seem pretty simple. You know the usual stuff drug test physical, and road test. Other than that the only thing you do is fill out paperwork and watch videos. The people seem to be pretty decent, we had two get sent home for failing the road test, but other than that everything thing is just fine. I'll keep you guys updated at least once a week on how it's. Going and if you have any questions feel free to ask!
     
    Chinatown Thanks this.

    So, I got out of orientation Thursday picked up my first load going 1289 miles Friday. Everything is going good so far I got the new cascadia so the first full tank was on dart. Other than that I have only spent $213 on fuel I filled up at 2.18 a gallon based on darts fuel discount. I'll drop this load in the morning g and hopefully they'll have me planned on a load out of there.

    Well I'm still here in eagan, mn waiting to be dispatched by fleet manager apparently they do not come in until 8:30 Monday morning. Which that sucks but know big deal once I'm dispatched I'll know my next three loads so I will not have to sit.

    So I got my first settlement it was 2300 bucks not bad for 2700 miles, so things seem to be going pretty good they keep you moving as long as you keep your eta updated.

    Okay, so far things are going good as long as you keep your eta updated they continue to give you loads. There is plenty of time to run the loads no stress, I typically wake up around 3am and shutdown around 2pm. First week gross 3390 to the truck took home 2300. This week I took home 2101.15 so far I have no complaints.
     
    po'man31 Thanks this.

    I'm running the dedicated ga pacific, I think I figured out a pretty good system keep the truck b/w 57 and 62mph and the mpg is around 8.5. I have an old 93 Pete I'm trying to restore so every little bit helps, I pay my self around 600 everything else goes to the old pete

    There are two GP Dedicated's, one is a South GP Dedicated, TX to KC MO across to VA and everything south and east of those points....and then there is a GP Dedicated which is like "national" but it runs I-35 and all points east of that line. Georgia is a good spot for either GP Dedicated National and GP Dedicated Southeast.
