    One of our instructors mentioned McElroy. I checked out their information last night, and they look promising. I'll look at Cypress as well.

    I think my biggest challenge is being 90 minutes east of I-95. I may change my home address to a place closer to the I-95 corridor.

    Well today we went out on the road for the first time, 4 to a truck plus a trainer. The day was spent upshifting and downshifting on a 4 lane 55mph highway. I personally got about an hour of seat time, and double clutching (especially downshifting) isn't as difficult as I had expected. It took me a bit longer to pick it up than it should have, as the tach in the truck was not visible from the driver's position.
