This is something that I instinctively knew was a bad idea, but to be honest it was the "few cents more" along with the promise of consistent miles that I was dumb enough believe was worth it. Very very luckily, (or by the grace of God) I survived to learn this lesson.
I'm doing the Schneider CAT program and in our class of 12 I think 7 are signed up to team. My wife and I seem to be the only ones who know who we will be teaming with. The other guys are going with whomever they get matched with. I don't understand it at all.
