Arrived at the motel in Red Oak, south of Dallas, to attend orientation starting tomorrow. No clue why it takes three days and the documentation sounds like we have to get another physical and take another road test. Frankly I’d hate to have to go straight out on a test without some time behind the wheel first.

My roommate seems like a nice kid. 22 years old from up in the panhandle. A friend with a rig taught him enough to pass the DPS test and he is here to become a driver.

Saw some people from school. Apparently one of them is not on the motel list which means he is not on the orientation list. Hopefully he can get that straightened out.

Let the adventure begin.
