Greetings, I'm New

You say you are "emotionless" on your decision.... are you really sure about that??? I am starting school in August and I have Zero family or kids. You will be away from the house for months at a time. When you're 2,000 miles from the house and your wife goes into labor then what? Your income for the first year is going to suuuuuuuckkkkka.. I'm not trying to bring you down however, plan on months away from the house. when you leave for school and then pass (One month (ish)) then get on the road training (three months (ish)) ya just can't run to the house when you're "under load"....

I really hope hope you have the fortitude for this... It's a lifestyle not a job. I truly wish you all the best and may the always wind be at your back.

Eliminating cigarette odor out of your semi-tractor

Hi you all, first time posting here.

I'm a 40 year old finally getting a career, trucking. I should have done this 10 years ago. I did my training, got my CDL, and scored a job with a smaller company that I think will be a great fit. I'll be driving a reefer trailer and picking up food in Los Angeles, then delivering LTL loads all over the west. Not bad huh? I'll get to travel my favorite states, like CA, AZ, and Nevada.

Getting on to the topic, my observations are that there are a lot of tobacco users in the trucking occupation. It seemed everyone in my CDL school either did "dip" or smoked, including the instructors. My company trainer smokes, no big deal as that will only last for a few weeks.

But you know when they assign me my own truck that thing is going to stink of cigarettes. And that triggers asthma with me. When you're a new driver you get the beater I understand, it was the same way when I drove a taxi.

So, is it possible to completely remove cigarette odor, and get the truck smelling awesome again? I'll do whatever it takes. If it costs money to have it professional done, no problem. The truck will be permanently assigned to me. Or I could try doing it myself, I did buy a steam cleaner a couple of days ago for household use. I also read about ozone shock treatments to remove stubborn odors.

I'll be living out of this truck for up to a week at a time, so I want my "home" home to be comfortable and smell good. Thank you.

www.itk1.com. Try the "Target Surface Cleaner" product on there. It works wonders on cat ****, (trust me on that one). This should do you just fine. You can actually call the owner and he will send you a spray bottle of it. It's 100% all natural and has zero nasty chemicals plus, it smells great. IMO

Minnesota State Patrol searching for semi that nearly hit girl waiting for school bus

Why though did the bus not pull over onto the shoulder itself instead of stopping in the middle of the highway? Sooner or later something like this is going to happen and someone will get killed.

I wonder the same thing as buses around here going down a major (four line) highway with a 65 MPH speed limit do the same thing and stop in the middle of the road. It seems they should make a law stating school buses must pull over to the side of the road to pick up and drop off children.

That bus should be over on the side IMO..... One thing I noticed if you take it frame by frame it would seem the lights on bus came on at the last second and the traffic coming the other way never slowed down....
