    I had a PM requesting I post this info so, here are the statistics for my time in training with Raider Express.

    Total Days Training: 24 (Including Orientation)
    Miles Driving: 5950
    Time Off Duty: 241.25
    Time In Sleeper: 168.25
    Time Driving: 122.75 (Average MPH: 48.47) [Our trucks are governed at 62mph)
    Time On-Duty (Non-Driving): 19.75
    Total Hours: 552

    Pretty pitiful really, students are supposed to do 12,000 miles before being released. But considering we spent five of my training days sitting, it isn't really too bad.
