    I am finally starting orientation tomorrow. Haven't been in a truck in about a month since school so I am just a little nervous about tomorrow. Hope everything goes well.

    Good luck, take you a bag of green and red M&M's for your nerves. Get to bed early tonight at least, stay away from a lot of caffeine and salty food today. And break a leg, the first day it seems like is really hectic for those who post on here.

    Good luck to you. I am sure you'll do just fine after you get a few of the cobwebs out of the way. You got this, man.

    Don't sweat it....these companies are DESPERATE for drivers. Every day you spend behind the wheel, YOU are doing THEM a favor, not the other way around.

    Well first day of orientation is over and they have'nt told me to go home. Did my backing test today and while nervous did not hit anything and put the trailer where it needed to go. Did my UA and filled out paperwork so looks like I am going to be a new May driver!:biggrin_25519:

    Well I meet my trainer at 10 am this morning. Hope all will go well. I got to get a little wheel time with the boss down to chart yesterday and that hot my confidence up. I really think I am going to love driving as a career.
