Congrats man! Another milestone. The day you showed up here you were hoping to rebuild your life and take another shot at trucking. You've climbed steadily back into the game and now you're back out there as an official pro making a great living traveling the country. I'm super happy for ya, I really am. You've demonstrated the old adage perfectly - just take it one day at a time and keep moving relentlessly forward. There's no limit to where you can go if you'll just keep at it.

Congrats!

I completely agree with Brett.

It's been nothing short of inspiring to witness the zeal and excitement which you've displayed as you went from homeless and barely even having food to eat, to reaching your goal of becoming a professional driver. I know what it's like to both struggle and succeed. You managed to go from one spectrum to the other without us ever hearing you whine, complain, or beg for financial help from us.

For me, that speaks volumes about your character. We salute you as a great American success story!

All I can say is thanks and wow. I am almost in tears with emotion as I read yalls replies. No worries just happy ones though. Brett, thanks so much for starting up this site and making it into what it is today. I am slowly getting my old life back and I am loving EVERY SECOND of it. Old School, you certainly have a very inspiring way with words. I said it before and I will say it again: you certainly need to write a book about your experiences out here. I would certainly obtain a copy of it. G-Town, same with you. You sir need to write a book about your experiences out here also. Thank you all for your support and kind words throughout this entire time. I will be back on here and keep still in touch but lets just hope and pray that I come back here on 08/14/2017 and I can change my status back to Experienced Driver. Thats my next goal. Speaking of that to reach that milestone without mistakes, proper pretrip, GOAL on EVERYTHING that is a dangerous maneuver and watch distance and follow that Smith System and I should be fine. I love you all and I really want to meet you all in person one day. I want to buy yall lunch when I do. We should schedule a time that way yall can come here to Cedar Rapids and I can buy yall lunch from the nicest restaurant in town which by that time I hope I know which one that is. Also G-Town, thanks for that wake up call you gave me when I was in a rut with my NADTA road test. It helped me dig myself out brush off the dirt and get it done. Thank you all. Brett, Old School, and G-Town and others on here: you all are my guardian angels and I owe you all SO MUCH, its unreal. I love you all and thanks so much.

Thanks so much, Rainy. Hows everything goin for ya at Prime? Are you enjoyin your newfound promotion on here also? As I just told Patrick, that was well earned on your part also. So many great companies, so many options once I get that first year behind me. The only way to really make a decision about companies is to clone me and let my clones drive for them all. One for Prime, H. O. Wolding, Knight Sapa, Brett what was your MAIN company? Whatever that was same with another. Also one with Swift and G-Town. My original self though for now wants to stay right where I am at with CRST. Anyway thank you all and stay SAFE out there.
