    It was my pleasure. That's why I take the time to do it.
    Now as an update.... once we drop this load in Kentucky Ill have over 15,000 miles so far. We just go from one side of the country to the other. Went from New York to California, California to New Jersey, California to Michigan.... Just left California again heading for Kentucky...... I'm averaging over 620 miles ashift depending on where were at. I'm the night driver so traffic is not as a big if a problem. Except when I went through Dallas at rush hour.... that was fun. Seen a ton of things out here I never would've sen otherwise.

    So you are halfway done with your training after how many weeks?

    About how many miles per day did you start out driving? I know my recruiter said the trainers will let you drive 5-6 hours per day starting out but is it possible to drive more if you want?

    huge mistake running your 70 out like you are, your trainer SHOULD instruct you on how to save your hours. That extra 65 miles isnt worth the sitting for 24 you guys will be doing soon
