Welcome to my little corner of the world, this is where I rant, rave, kvetch or wax on nostalgic about anything and anyone that crosses my path at that moment in time.
Sit down for a bit and read some. If you enjoy what you read, please pass the love on to others so that they may partake in the yummy goodness that lies here.

Off The Newbie Board

That's right and that's good news.  For those that don't know, if you are a new driver with a company fresh out of CDL school with no real world experience, you are put on an inexperienced driver board.  Basically that just means your dispatcher or driver business leader can help you out much more on a one on one basis as opposed to you being lost with a dispatcher or dbl that has more experienced drivers and many more of them and you get lost in the mix.

Now the slight hitch, my new DBL is new with the company but so far they are good.  Some hiccups but they are able to communicate more quickly since they probably don't have as many drivers on their board quite yet.

How new?  Maybe a few weeks with the company.

They scheduled preventative maintenance for the truck but the truck being new, it took longer than normal.  This caused me not to be able to make delivery but DBL knew this and communicated that with receiving company so all should be good there.  So I get put up in a hotel for the evening, no idling truck, get a nice shower and free continental at the hotel, plus free coffee; that probably tastes better than some truck stop coffee that usually tastes of burnt mud.  If I wanted that, I would buy Starbucks, no, wait, I wouldn't, truck stop burnt mud would still be cheaper.

Not sure where I'm headed to tomorrow once I get back to the truck at this time.

That is all for now.  Maybe more in a couple days or weeks or months.

No telling with me.
