Met my instructor, today.  Seems like an OK guy.  He's 65!  Unfortunately, the person that assigns instructors thought I was from Michigan (he's from Ohio) instead of Massachusetts, so I may not be going home as often as I otherwise might.

He took me out on the shifting range, showed me the route, then let me drive.  Before I had even gone 200 yards, he said, "Oh, we're not going to have any problems at all" and didn't even let me finish a quarter of the course, which made me feel pretty good.

Our first load is coming in from Oklahoma, but it's not scheduled to be here until 8 or 9 tonight.  We're taking it to somewhere in Virginia.  I can't drive at night for the first week, so it looks like he'll be driving for the first bit.

I'm looking forward to getting on the road and seeing what this is all about.

Just finished my first drive. It seemed perfectly natural. My instructor let me drive from the Prime yard in Springfield, MO to the Flying J outside East St. Louis, IL, about five hours.
