    I'm honestly considering sleeping on a cot under the trailer, or under a picnic table, at a rest area... but will probably just forfeit the idle bonus when it gets too hot!

    Bob's an EXCELLENT instructor - he was my 3rd DI. He's a wealth of information - listen to him! He was instrumental in 'fine tuning' a lot of the things I needed help with, before I went out solo. Tell him 'Doc' said hi!

    Oh - did he tell you that he's known as the 'hatchet man'? He usually gets the drivers that other instructors have had problems with - and he's the guy that gets rid of them!

    In my case, I requested a driver that could help me out, and Rick put me with Bob... and I learned more in a week with him than 2 weeks with my previous instructor.
