    The terminal is small, the people are cool, respectful and relaxed, there is work from this terminal the little I noticed. The terminal is old, but the cleaning lady, I was told she cleans daily, and she does an excellent job. There is a shower in the bathroom, newer sofas in the driver room would help a lot. There isn't much near the terminal, but u can find things like restaurants, Walmart in a 3 miles radius.

    lol that place gets cleaned? I hadn't noticed. Must be the same company Markham uses, get the floor wet a little and then sit around and watch tv. I always go to the company hotel in W.Springfield when I have to layover, like this weekend.

    I'm surprised they didn't have a HEart beat monitor on you but if they didn't it doesn't sound bad at all.

    #### tried to get a hose and 3 fittings cleaned today probably would have taken all but 15 minutes since it's just rhoplex and just need a hot water spray down. Guys sitting there spraying his boots off and says can't do it were closed. What a good guy he is :(

    hello comrades!
    So, I did my first week solo, I started on 03/07 and went to Hunstville Canada, Cleveland and Cincinnati. Tomorrow heading into the system for Wisconsin. My trainer still helps me a lot with directions and other stuffs. I am driving a international 10 speed, it is in good condition for the age and miles. All good so far.
    Sorry taking longer to post, but my life is busy right now, doing my first weeks on the new job and trying to do most when in home time mode, u know. But I am here.
    Thanks.

    Hello,
    It has being a while since last time I wrote here, I am still at SPCR. I got busy from the hiring process, then training, till today. I am always busy on the road or at home.
    Good news, or bad for some of you? :) got a new Mack, yes is an auto. got pros and cons feelings, is a good truck the Macks. I am still trying to find out how manually select gears, but some drivers and mechanics told me you can't. But I like this Mack, pulls good uphill, is comfortable, inside espace is not great, I am thinking in doing some customizing to have a little more storage, this may be my next tread here. The auto transmission, well is love/hate daily thing, but I am starting not minding it, till the snow hits the ground!
    My beginning was slow, didn't see much work, got a little frustrated about, but after spending so much wait time be to hired and training, I decided to ride the storm a little longer, now things a getting a little better, hopefully it will keep pointing up on my chart.
    Others drivers, most at least are awesome, and like any other working place, the few odds are there, but most are not bad, is just the customary way that they meet people, u know, but 99% are really helpful and friendly.
    I'll be back tomorrow, my dm told i will go in Ok, but winds change direction in trucking sailing.
    well thanks y'all
    and have a good weekend, be safe.
