    Well the journey begins in 5 days. Last day of work is tomorrow and then I will be heading to Medford, WI, J. Bauer Trucking, on Sunday to start my one on one training Monday. Training on a manual transmission is the biggest concern I have. My trainer has been in the trucking business a very long time and feels it is important to get me my CDL without any restrictions.

    Training progresses based on my competency. Once my CDL is obtained, I will go regional, within 500 miles of Medford, with a mentor. Once the mentor and I feel I’m ready for a truck, I will go solo OTR. All Volvo fleet and the OTR drivers typically get the new trucks. :)

    Excited, yet a bit nervous. Family not too thrilled of my choice. Focusing on a positive attitude though. I hoping to do a diary, but want to get a clearance from the company to do so first.

    Thanks to this forum for the wealth of information and knowledge that is shared. Hope to be able to meet some of you on the road one day.

    Keep us posted. Those Volvo's are sweet trucks; smooth rides.
