Foul Weather gear

Hey Mack, When I was driving a rollback I bought most my stuff from (

I'm still waiting for my vision waiver exemption to come back so I can't advise you on how all the gear I want to take packs in a can :)

Vision waiver

Howdy all.

I know I’m replying a year after the question but I didn’t see any reason to start a new thread.

I’m currently gathering all of the documentation for the vision waiver the fmcsa requires.

I do not have a CDL, only a chauffeur’s license.

I need the waiver because of a childhood accident at the age of three; piece of glass, sibling, playing in the alley behind the house with no supervision.... you know. Having fun in the ‘70s 😜

My left eye has scarring across the pupil that has never worsened or gotten better. Literally my brother got a direct splitting my pupil to make it look like a cats eye, or teardrop scar. Yes it my conversation piece everyone I meet someone new!

Any-hoo. My optometrist signed a letterhead saying the deficiency hasn’t changed and my vision is stable,

I still need to send off all the documents (waiting on current employer to verify my tenure and mileage as a rollback driver the past eight months) and then wait up to six months for a yay or nay from the fmcsa.

I just wanted to update the thread and say “hola”.

Thank you all so much for the education I’m getting about trucking. Don M.
