    Hello everyone,
    My name is David Graves I am 48 y/o and I will be going to MTS in Richfield Wi starting 8/18/2014. I have always wanted to be a trucker..now my kids are big kids and its my time. I have been a Captain for years and recently for Americas Largest Cruise Company. I have looked at companies for years and Millis Transfer is my choice. I am not getting paid to write this ...but I will be honest and tell you all the good and the bad as it comes along. I will only do this link for the school and the first 6 months of being an OTR driver.

    So far Alice has been great I applied online on a Friday night on Monday she needed some further info as I have also had some self employeement and they needed tax returns...no issues I supplied and in a day or so approved.

    My personal contact is: Email: David@GravesCorp.com

    Be safe out there

    I caught a 20 lb. Dolphin Fish off the fantail of a frigate just off the coast of El Salvador. Not a Dolphin, but a Dolphin Fish. My buddy hooked a huge Swordfish; it jumped completely out of the water right behind the ship, then snapped the line. You ever do any fishing off that cruise ship?

    Saturday 2 days before school starts.

    Had a nice dinner with kids and grand kids, and my mom. You would think its the last meal together...put some suff in storage, and am packed. I have asked to know who my roommate is but no response. I like to cook and well do any of us like sharing a room for 3 weeks with someone we dont know etc??? I even said forward my info to the roommate......nothing. oh well. My plan is to get there about 3 ish and get checked in. Since I only live an hour away I plan to come home once a week. I called the hotel Super 8 and yes I am setup.

    Be safe out there

    Dave
