Erin B.'s Bio

Finally my time ! I've been dreaming of driving a big rig since I was a little girl. We lived in the country right close to a highway. I went to sleep at night listening to the trucks rolling by. Got my first base CB when I was 10 ! I raised my son and then along came my grandson. Now with both my boys on their own.. I can finally live my dream. I've worked in factories all my life. While providing my family very well, it wasn't my dream. I've been on this site a few months', almost finished with the HRTP. Been looking into company sponsored training very carefully. At first , thought of waiting till winter was over . Now I'm thinking of jumping in maybe mid to late January. I think I would rather go through training during the more difficult weather . I like to challenge myself. I'm very thankful I found this site. A wealth of information and so much help in studying. I'm so excited and ready to get this going When I start school I will do a diary. Thanks to everyone who has made this site possible.

So how's it going ??

Well. How fitting. I just accidentally deleted my long post. This day...it's almost over and tomorrow is brand new. I hope this finally dried up bus toilet? water from idk how but all on the floor went all onto my bag & on who knows what inside of it washes up okay. As well as my coffee stained pants, too. And that my $55 overnite pkg with my birth cert in it arrives as it should tomorrow a.m., after I check into the hotel after sunrise. I didn't mention yet the 1st mystery water bus also had a rear blow out which scared the bejesus out of everyone, especially me. As I thought I wanted to die for forgetting my dox. Boy was I wrong, I badly wanted to live, I discovered. haha Okay What I'm thinking is, this is just the beginning. Just a taste of the frustration ahead to have to learn and to be new at something all over again. The patience and positive attitude required to keep going. Im on this bus, out of my element and away from everyone I love. As for today, so far it's felt like "What am I doing?!" But, Im just being myself. You cant predict what Im going to do. Except* if you tell me I cant do it...as many have already. Well you can be sure to find me doing said thing. Been reading a lot here & glad for its existence. Hopefully, I'll have more Positive posts to share in the near future.
