    I'll be in chattanooga,tn sunday night to start orientation monday. Looking forward to it. I've heard the good and the bad, but i'm just happy to be back rolling. I'm going in as a "refresher". From what I understand it'll be orientation (3 days then a road test to see if I go strait out with as a team or with a trainer.I'm confidant (not ####y) so I'll probably go strait to teaming. I lost my lic. back in 09' (lead foot):biggrin_25513:, and believe me lesson well learned. So like I said i'm just happy to be back on the road, and covenant seemed like a good company to get some recent experience. I only need 6 months to a year . And I'll be going with a decent company close to home. (patiently waiting "sighs") So All I can do is pray for the best, and prepare for the worst either way I'm headed to covenant. I'll try to post more as I go along, if I have time of course.
    Wish me luck!:biggrin_25519:

    Got in yesterday about 1pm, checked in to the covenant hotel. When you check in you get a folder about a quarter inch thick full of papers to be filled out by the morning. The room is ok I read most of the previous covenant posts so I wasn't expecting much. There is a shuttle that runs every 15min.(walmart, terminal, bus station,etc.) They give you free breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Compared to dinner last night, breakfast was pretty good,(two older women cooked bfast, almost like home). Then off to 1st day of orientation, The president of Covenant made a quick speech, filled out a few more pages of paper work (for UI, agility, physical).

    I'm done with UI and agility, waiting on my physical (about 50 or so people in orientation so its gonna take a while. I'll post more when I'm done our maybe tue.

    If there are any questions,or if I forgot something just ask. Be Safe.

    finished with the refresher program sunday, it was pretty strait forward. You come in thur. and start practicing on the forty five back on two separate courses. (7-5). Fri. Smith system and testing on the smith system, if your in the refresher its a no brainer. The back to the forty five course. Sat. More forty fives, and go on your road test. Sun.test out on your backing and the get your status.(solo, team, trainer)

    I'm going team, found someone close by thats willing to run thru xmas so I should be outta here tue.

    Hope this post was helpful, to any who read it. If you got any questions pm me.
    Otherwise wish me luck and good miles.
