Left from the Wal*Mart parking lot about 0800. The path we took to get out was a bit tight. My instructor said I'd probably have to run over the curb a bit, but I proved him wrong. :-). Didn't even bump it. He gave me some kudos yesterday for how I negotiated a tight corner in a small town. And tonight, he told me "Good job!" For the way I backed into the parking spot at the truck stop. I think I'm making a favorable impression.

We had a bit of excitement, or, I should say *I* did, since he was inside the building. After we fueled this afternoon, we pulled forward, as usual. The truck to our right was already pulled forward from the pumps. I'm waiting there calmly when, CRUNCH! from the right. I look over and the front bumper is being torn off the truck to our right. The truck that did it just kept on going. The driver of the truck that was hit came out of the building a bit later. Some of the other witnesses told him what happened. He ran out to try to catch the truck before it left and was successful. Turns out it was the driver's first week (we think he might have been a trainee like me). I can't imagine that he and his instructor didn't feel (or hear) their trailer hit the other truck.

I drove the whole leg, today, just to see if it was something I felt comfortable doing, since today is my last day to quit and not owe anything. I felt pretty good at the end, so I think I'll stick with it. ;-)
