Trucking School Class half day Wednesday
by Collin Barnette
I don't think the Instructors wanted to be at the school this morning but for me and the one other guy that showed up it was great. I had several instructors to myself and thought it was a very productive time.
I see that several have written in and asked about the frustrations of backing. Well I can tell you, I am 49 and have backed a few trailers in my day including semis. It can be a very humbling experience. One time I will slip that trailer right into the spot and the next time, (*^%$$@!!) not even close. But, with practice, I get better every day. The School seems to have the worst possible combination, a long three axle tractor and a short, short trailer. If I can get this down for the DMV and then remember to be patient with myself in the future, I think it will start to come easier.
Merry Christmas everybody! Stay tuned for more updates from Truck Driving School.
