    I feel ya, I hate starting a new job..loathe it in fact. I am always worried I will forget something new and pull a bone head and my reputation as a good driver will go out the window. Stay calm, and do what you know how to do well :)

    Going well, just grateful I am paid $25.00 an hour to do this, lol.

    Now that I am in a rental that has made it over the mountain a few times without blowing up, everything is just rosy. I like dragging the wiggle wagons, and really I haven't had a bit of nonsense with only two that I take every night, I can't take more than that over the passes. I did meet a very cool bad ass lady from Colorado Springs that hauls two 53' trailers at once.. she's my new idol.. and as sweet as the day is long. I would have ran **** over by now, LOL.
    It's been fun teaching me to snap a set on the door, it's not been as pretty as those who have been doing it 25+ years, but it has been effective. I don't have a pintle (sp?) hook so I can't spot my own dollies, but most are very helpful doing that for me.
    I like it really.

    Very nice looking Bronco,whoever owns it should never sell it.
    I know if it was mine I'd hang onto it.

    Working overtime tonight. The run I'm on for the night goes to 2 places back and forth for the whole shift. One of those places is closed, so I'm just sitting here twiddling my thumbs. I hate slow nights like these.

    Wave on your way through KC. I'm about 4 miles from your terminal in Edwardsville.

    So yesterday I did 3 days worth of video and online training in 7 hrs. Today I get ti go out with a trainer that has 10 less years in the road than I do. The good thing is that I am accelerating the training so Friday I'm solo.

    No one cares. No one wants to wave at you. End of line.
