    ^I had my physical done for my CDL school, I did not need another one here at TransAm, only had to show my physical "short form". They do another drug test while here at orientation.

    ^Everything is fine here, thanks. Have been busy, met my trainer on Thursday afternoon and have been on the road ever since. We arrived early at our destination after a 1,400 mile drive (I drove 1,000, trainer drove 400) since we are early for our unload apointment we will have a 14 hour break. That is fine, can rest and get ready to drive again.

    The TransAm trucks are nice with the inverter we have all of our electircal suff (TV, laptops, phone chargers, microwave, fridge, etc.) up and running. The automatics are a little bit weird but I can see they are saving a lot of work, I am sure I can drive longer and feel less tired with one.

    I am into the 3rd day of my 11 day training period, I will just keep working through this until I can get my own truck :)

    Was 60 or 90 days when I was there. Talk about the blind, leading the blind.

    if you fly in you pay upfront and they reimburse you
    bus they pay in the beginning
    bus tickets are refundable if you dont show up
