    Last week was a short week. After I delivered in East Syracuse, I deadheaded back over to Jamestown then to Anniston. After I delivered in Anniston, I went home for the night since I was out of hours. I finished last week with 2100 miles

    Thursday morning, I get a text asking did I want to stay home for the day or go back out. I told them if I could get a late afternoon pickup, I would come back out today. A few minutes later, I got a 2100 mile run from my house over to Grovetown, GA with 5 stops finishing out in Stanley, ND tomorrow.

    I was very thankful to get the first 2 stops off yesterday in Stratford, WI and Rogers, MN. Now I m in Fargo doing a reset, and will back track to Moorhead in the morning then over to Velva, ND and Stanley, ND.

    Once I deliver in Stanley, I got to figure out a way to get truck serviced, and be back home by Friday. By the time I get from Stanley to Grand Forks to home, it should be close to 4,000 miles again within the last 2 weeks.

    I m glad that I don t see Grand Forks as much as I used to. Twice a week sometimes was too much lol

    Well, another 4000 mile week in the books. I picked up last Thursday in Grovetown, GA and did my 5 stops by Monday afternoon. I got lucky and got 2 out of the 5 delivered Saturday. And finished the last 3 by 1430.

    Then I deadheaded 270 miles to the yard for service, picked up a load off the yard, and went to Gainesville, GA. Got to Gainesville around 1200 unloaded and reloaded in 45 minutes going to Anniston. I got to Anniston, unloaded, then 18 miles to the house for some time off.

    It was good to hang out with some good friends in Grand Forks this past Monday. I ve noticed that there s a few more O/O s that are leased on to S&S now.
     
    LDYTRUCKER, Lonesome and CJ701 Thank this.

    I m not sure how long the training is, but they probably will have you go with a trainer. I know they ll have you practice backing in the yard up to one of the warehouse docks
     
    CJ701 Thanks this.

    They re trying to get into training drivers, but we don t have that many trainers, and they re real nit picky about trainers. I mean I ve only been driving 18.5 yrs and have trained before. They told me I m not qualified yet lol
     
    LDYTRUCKER Thanks this.
