    I wanted to take a minute to say Mahalo to all those who helped me achieve this start in my new career. At 56 this was much more of a Bucket List item that I wanted to achieve.

    I finished my school at the top of the class, I aced my alley dock (could have measured the distance from the tires to the line on each side), and in one shot. I was proud of that!! My road test was in a manual in some of the worse weather I have seen in Tampa this year. When we pulled back in the yard, the State Examiner said, "congratulations, you passed your CDL, and I'm giving you an Endorsement for driving in Monsoons, and Hurricanes (hahaha) yeah it was that bad. Speaking of Endorsements, I picked up my T, N, H & X along the way. I figured if I didn't land my first choice, i could move fuel out of Port Tampa.

    I took my time and did land my first choice of Jobs. I will fly to Green Bay after Thanksgiving to go through orientation with PTI. I will then join their Southern Fleet, and be based out of Tampa, Dedicated driving in the South Whoop! Whoop! I'm so excited to get started.

    Again a BIG Mahalo to all those who offered me support and guidance, both on here and at school. you all helped make this happen. Stay safe - See you on the Road - MaunaLoa 249647487_10222898802752420_5258307050199833450_n.jpg

    :hello1::headbang::happy7: Good job driver.......Just remember...the next year of your life will be the REAL TRUCK DRIVING SCHOOL! On your own....SOLO. Take your time.....do not rush.....do not get flustered. Keep your License and record squeeky clean. If you are like most of us, you will only ask yourself.....WTF was I thinking about 40 or 50 times in your first 90 days! Lol
