Will reckless younger years haunt me?

OK, when I was younger I was a wild one. I loved building fast cars and blow those expensive exotic POS cars off the road. I was also a partier. My past has resulted in two OWI's and one reckless driving. My reckless driving was in 1994, I won the race but lost my license(147 in a 35mph zone). I moved on from racing and switched to four wheeling. My OWI's were in 1989 & 2006. The one in 2006 was bogus as I was on private property........four wheeling....sigh. Sooooo, should I give up on looking into trucking and move on?

Overhang and "did I do that?".

Grrr, I have to read the "how to use this forum" link. Yes, I am talking about the overhang behind the rear axle. The parking strip idea is ingenious!! Gonna do it. Thanks for the comments y'all!

Posting pics

What I did was copy and paste directly. I highlighted the old link then pasted the new one. Easy cheesy.

I have been driving a company 26' box for a couple months now and when in cities/towns I always take off at an angle because I don't know if I will rip parts off the vehicle in the lane opposite of my turn. Should I be worried?

Can anyone give me their opinion(s) about this topic?? I have heard good and bad about it. Let me point out what I consider my biggest beef with it knowing the bit of understanding I have. Taking the mandatory 10 when I don't need or want to. Let me clarify. What if I am wide awake, less than an hour or even minutes (more than 7) from my drop and the 10 makes that impossible? I have more YAYS and NAYS but I want to start simple.

Six month clock started........

Yeah, I agree, 30 years is a long time but with all the research I have done the magic number is 3 months so 6 months should be sufficient. Ten days clean.

Ok, so beer is out. Gonna take a bit to quit as I just gave up one bad habit. Its not the booze side, its the flavor, love it with a burger or steak or fries or loin or........you get the point. What about near beer etc?

It is my understanding that .04 is the max BAC and have seen a lot of comments advising against even one beer a day while OTR. I have even seen that using mouth wash (with alcohol) is discouraged. Just things I have read.
