    Hey, AT, had to come over and check you out being a "real" trucker. ;) Got a kick out of reading about your testing... I can do the tarp lift (I've had to, although I do brains more than brawn and usually "walk" it up the steps), but I do have problems getting those winches tight. Maybe I won't see if they'll take li'l ole me.

    Anyway, glad to see you settling down with the new company and I'll try to keep up with you. Good luck!
     
    American-Trucker Thanks this.

    Sounds great so far AT! Thank goodness you could lift almost your body weight in tarps! It sounds like orientation is, for once, set up to keep the prospective employee happy! What a concept! Too bad more companies don't take that approach.

    Started the day off with more paper work, went over the homework. Watched some movies. Then over to get the DOT Physical done, 6 guys went in.....1 went home (he had 2 hernias).

    Then more class stuff, then off to lunch, mexican place today, real good. Then more class stuff, load securment, etc.

    Then out for free dinner again.


    Allot more class stuff tomorrow....not sure if/when there will be a road test :biggrin_25511:.

    You heading to the Port of Okla City? LOL It was in a used truck dealership few yrs ago when I went up there. Sure beat heck out of going to Houston. There is great hamburger joint up there on NW Hwy. Little Mikes.
