    Done with orientation today. I am now sitting in the airport waiting for my flight home. There was a lot of sitting and waiting this week. We had a good group of guys in orientation with me. No one was an ### and the instructor was easy to get along with. Yesterday I was given the name and number of my trainer. Gave him a call last night. Sounded like a nice guy, I guess time will tell. I will be teaming up with him on Monday. Looking forward to getting the wheels turning.
    So far I don't have any negative to say about the company. The closest to negative was all the time sitting in the orientation room with nothing to do but b.s. with the other guys. Which wasn't so bad.

    Second day of driving is done. I started out in the drivers seat yesterday late morning and have been the sole driver. My instructor has been along for the ride and giving me tips as we go. He has been showing me how to use Peoplenet. So far he hasn't yelled at me so I must be doing ok. Lol. We get along good and have been sharing stories. Been down to Nebraska and now back in Minnesota for the night.
    So far it has been a positive experience and have nothing bad to say.

    At least your driving. Sounds like fun. Still waiting on a trainer. Seriously thinking about going elsewhere. Will see. Are going into the city or just the outskirts?
