Wahoo maybe the black cloud of life is lifting!
 
I went and took the drivers portion of My Class A CDL with only less then a 1/2 hr driving experince and passed!
Now I can listen to really bad music and not shower etc.J/K
There is such a shortage of drivers here I hope I can talk someone into hiring me!
So if you are in alaska and see some crazy driver with a world War II flyers cap and Bonzai scarf on going down the road be very very scared!
Also have several other nice suprises in store.
Now go away Black cloud of life and come blow some sunshine up my a$$ for a change!

CYA in the middle!

Nice.... Keep looking down from your higher truck driver position... You never know what you might see.

Oh, and if you blow your horn, you WILL embarass the girl. Lifes lessons we learn along the way :)

Good news bro!

Hope for good weather and good looking women driving convertibles:D

Glad to hear things are going well for you.... and like Al said watch out for the sob's on the road and at pit stops... if you aren't already, get licensed.. just make sure it's allowed with the company that hires you.

Schmitti,
I am fully lic and certified.
I am still waiting on TSA to make sure I am not a terrorist before they will let me get my haz mat endorsement though.
Maybe driving all those 40ft RVs on demo drives paid off.

Bonzai!

Congrats man!
I hear hazmats are expensive...
What kind of trucking do you plan on doing?

Also, how hard was it to get the CDL, I've considered taking short-haul trucking jobs, but I'd need a CDL.

I passed all but two of the required written tests without studying.
They are pretty much common sense and easy to pass.
Then find someone to teach you a pre-flight or even just spend the $400 or so dolars for a class and road test. Then it is off to scare the crap out of people.
