    There is no first or second chance in trucking. Get it right every time. Trucking is serious business. Western express, cr england, hobo trucking express...

    That should be an axiom in "The Hitchhiker's Guide to Life".

    A mixer truck, class B. Backing is a challenge as I think it has a longer wheel base than a class A style truck. I could really use a backing simulator. I know where is American Truck Simulator that has great mirror simulations but do they have a mixer truck?

    Update on the job - The training has been great but I have not driven independently yet. Might do that for the 1st time tomorrow morning, pretty ###### worried about it haha....oh man..I am still learning a ton with my trainer when I go out with him but the company I think wants to cut the cord and get me out there on my own.

    Old school rear loader. It is a great truck but for sure takes some practice backing, which I am expected to do a lot of under often difficult circumstances.

    Go rent the biggest U-Haul you can rent and spend your entire day off backing that sucker around. The 26' one should be about the same length as a mixer truck.
