I sat with my fiance and we decided for me to go in early. I start prime febuary 20th.(she at least wants me for valentines day i understand that.) Her stepfather is furious and wants all of my stuff out before i leave no problem. Ive been looking at.storage unit prices.earlier in the year anyways.

Now i need to buckle down and focus on high road and ignore everything else. I am excited and ready to tackle this first step to the best decision i could make for our lives.

Thanks for the support everyone and dealing with my annoying tendencies, i know ive been a pain with good intentions.

Will you be ready? The leisurely pace just became more urgent and compressed.

High Road Training Program should be a top priority for you now. Focus Man...,focus!

Make it happen.

Congratulations. You have just taken a giant grown up step. That was only meant as a compliment. Someday you will look back on this move and smile.

Every break at work, every 5 items i pack for moving i stop and do one page of the high road. When i lay down for bed i do 3 pages as i lay down. Right now i am about to do a few pages before work i just wanted to check in quickly here.

All you need to study at this point is general knowledge, combination, air-brakes, and tanker endorsement. That's all Prime wants you to shoot for. Focus focus focus on that! You won't have the opportunity to study once you get here. You will start orientation on Monday and will be taking the permit test Tuesday morning!

You can get the other endorsements later.

I wish you the best of luck!
