Since being out OTR with Jon for six weeks, we talked about it, and I told him I wanted to get my class one (CDL) as well, so that when I get the chance to go with him, we can get their faster ( if we dont have a break down LMBO). He laughed and doesn't believe me...so I like proving him wrong, and I am learning from you what I am in for lol....I am for sure enjoying reading your journal to help me understand what I am going to go through as long as I dont chicken out lol

Thanks so much for sharing

Lisa, there are plenty of sweaty guys, but if you consider any of them cute, we are gonna have to talk. LMBO

And Dorothy, there is a lady in my class, and while I believe she is one of the nicest people I have ever met, I have to say this...if she gets through this and gets her license, anybody can. And I'm finding that a good dose of determination is just the thing..this is hard and you got to want to, very badly. I hope I can help you, but please remember that Canada is very different than the US.

Thanx, Kim, I'm trying hard!! It does help that I have just a bit of experience at this.

And Dee, first diabetes in itself is not a barrier...depends on the situation. It is true that insulin dependent diabetics are barred, but there are waivers for those who can meet special requirements. As for the COPD, I have that also. As long as it is controlled and you can pass the physical, this is not a barrier either.

Sharon, hun, we would love for you to get back into it, but you can "live" through me if that's what makes you happy. [hugs]

To everyone...I plan to write everyday. I will do my best to include the highlights of each day, but these "blogs" tend to get long before I know it, and while I love reading the long posts, I know that not everyone does. I'm loving the comments, so please feel free. Even if you are just letting me know that you are reading. Again, I'm sorry they are so long, but it is hard to condense everything into a few short sentences and still get everything in.

For anyone who read Week One, Day Four (Thursday, 8/16) and took a guess regarding my score on the HAZ-Mat test...if you guessed 100%...YOU ARE RIGHT!!!!
