    I have been practicing pre-trip so much it's making me crazy! The sims are really fun, it's good practice for driving and teaches us a lot of stuff.

    I don’t know anything about Prime, but I’ve never fueled at anywhere else other than Flying Js’/Pilots’; I’d be broke without my rewards card, no free shower after every fuel and $5 to do laundry (they have a machine you swipe your card in and you can start the machine that way)

    Today’s been kind of a laid back day, put my preferences of trainers: non smoking (because of the trying to quit smoking and the gum is helping) and male or female (don’t matter which.), also spent most of my the day doing pre-trip stuff and Sim testing and finished the rest of my CBT’s. Now we’re going out to the pad for a couple hours to make sure we have the pre-trip down pat. I will update tomorrow with day 3 information. Hoping to hear from my trainer sometime tomorrow or Thursday . I will keep you all updated!

    Ok, time for a health update. A few people know this already but, I have Sleep Apnea. I only smoked for about a month and than I figured it would be better for me now and in the long run if I quit while i'm ahead. That being said, I was wondering if I get assigned to a LW truck when I first go out on my own (I know trainers trucks are condo's.) Wherewould you all recommend putting the CPAP Machine? I know in a LW, theirs no shelves behind the seats like their are in condo's. If I got a Condo, i'd put it on one of the shelves but if I got a LW I couldn't do that. So I waswondering where you would put it in thatsituation?
