    Hey grc56, That's great. I'm glad you like it there so far. I'm leaving tomorrow for Utah to start training on monday with Central Refrigerated. I'm just nervous about the weight/heart rate exercise test. I know I can pass everything else that deals with the cdl but I've been sitting at a desk for the last 3.5 years and my strength isn't what it used to be. But I've been working out and drinking my v8's so hopefully that will help. Good luck to ya and drive safe my friend!!

    grc I see you are not sleeping much. Left at 8am, post at 12:30am, next post at 6:00am. Are you having problems sleeping in the truck or just triing to adjust to the lifestyle change? I'm leaving for Gary later today. Thanks for the update.
