    Hey, all y'all!

    Retiring from the corporate rat race and decided to get my CDL Class A and do OTR. Passed my school driving test today and will be with the state examiner next week.

    Looking forward to making friends and learning way of the road from you folks!

    Not sure yet - just beginning the journey! I am actually employed in my corporate rat race job until end of August - then I will get more srious about looking.

    Got a friend at Schneider in Green Bay and one at Swift in Dallas. I live in Albuquerque and there a few carriers around here. The school is having some companies come visit the classes so I will meet recruiters in September.

    Thanks for the warm welcome and support!

    The OM is a cat. @Dave_in_AZ carries his cat with him on the truck.
