What Was Your First/Best Concert

My first concert was July 13, 1980 in Landover MD. I saw Ted Nugent/ Def Leppard/ Scorpions. Foghat/ Outlaws Nov 1980 and Travis Tritt/ Marty Stuart 1994 were my best concerts. Had some great times!

The Notch

All you have to do is highlight the website that you are on, which would be the link of the story you are posting. To do that you would need to hold the left button on your mouse and drag it to highlight the website that is showing in your browser and then right click on your mouse and select copy. Then when you go to post it just hit paste and it will appear. I hope this helps and that my explanation is clear! If not please contact me and I will try to explain it better.

Students-check your attitude!

Great post Etch! I just completed CDL school in late October. I was the oldest in the class (Late 50's). Boy did I get some free entertainment from the "youngsters". This nation is in trouble if the new way is contagious!

Sandman J, I went here and was able to do it online. It was $69 total.

It showed up on my record approximately 10 hours later by doing a check at https://tpr.fmcsa.dot.gov/Check

Good Luck!

Aviation to Oil and Gas to Trucking

Hello All, I am soon starting my CDL Training at Jones Technical Institute (JTech) in Jacksonville Florida on September 6. I am actually looking forward to it. I am a Veteran of the US Navy (Aviation) and Florida Air National Guard. After my military service I took a job in Kuwait training the Kuwait Air Force on the F/A-18. I did that for 12 years and then I transitioned over to Oil and Gas working for Kuwait Oil Company as an Health, Safety and Environmental Engineer for 15 years. I came back to the USA permanently in November 2021 after spending 27 years outside the US. When I arrived back, I traveled around the US with my family seeing relatives and friends I had not seen in quite awhile. Once the traveling was done then it was taking care of things around the house that I wanted to do and to keep me busy. I completed everything and now with everything I accomplished, I am absolutely bored. I have been blessed throughout my life and just looking to continue enjoying my life and contributing to society. I have acquired my CLP while waiting for school to start. I have also achieved getting the Double/Triples and Tanker endorsements. I am studying for the Hazmat currently and plan on taking the test for that prior to my training starting. I am not really looking for a OTR job. Once training is completed I plan on trying to get a local job just to keep me busy or doing something regional in Florida and Georgia.

Regards, Mark

Trucking with cypress truck lines inc/sunbelt

Hello Anne,

I was going to start once I got started on my training. I have been reading mostly on the forums for a few months now. I was able to get the WIOA and looking forward to getting started. This Thursday I have an appointment to take the test for Tankers and Double/Triple Endorsements. After I get my CDL A then I will do the Hazmat and acquire the TWIC card. My situation is I am bored out of my mind lol. I spent 27 years in the Middle East Kuwaitis on the F/A-18 initially, then I switched over to working in Oil and Gas. I arrived back home in November 2021 and did all of my projects around the house that I wanted to complete. Now the wife has more ideas so I am trying to escape LOL. (Just Kidding) Thank you for all the information that you provided! Take care and I am sure we will speak again.

Regards, Mark
