Default Going on the road!

As some of you already know, I got hired by a trucking company last week. Well, I got the call today from my new employer, telling me to have my bags packed and ready to go. Looks like I will be heading out tomorrow for on-the-road training!
Don't know where I'll be going or when I'll be back, other than I'll probably be home for the weekend.
Everybody wish me luck!

P.*. If you are waiting on parts from me, I will still be sending those out as soon as I can, but it may be a week or two before I can get down to work on the car.

No idea yet. I'll be running team with a trainer for a couple of weeks, so I go where he goes.

Good luck with the new job. Enjoy the scenery and take pictures of all the bonnevilles and other "things" you might see along the way.

Will do. Though the photos might be a little fuzzy, as all I have is a camera phone.
The nice digital that I usually use is my Pops'.

And 250,000,000 idiots that think a semi is just a fancy lane divider.

Looks like I'll actually be staying local for this week. I go to meet up with my trainer tomorrow morning. Have to be at his place at 6:15AM and he lives over an hour away!
Anyway, he has a dedicated local run here in central Ohio, so I'll be home nights.
Next week I'll be switching to a trainer who does OTR.

Hey, just to let you know that the Flying J truck stop has the internet there. If you want to get online, you can put a dollar in there for 30mins of interenet. i do that when I have time to sit around. Good luck on your new driving career!Are you going to be riding with Werner ?
