Lisa L.'s Bio

i have worked ranches and groomed dogs for most of my life. hours of loping horses ,10-12 a day. for some reason, 4 hours at a time at 3 am in the rare snows we get in the south when big competitions were at hand. only to get sent back out and missing the 3 minutes that horse had to cut a calf out of a herd. so the texans that flew in could get the glory. after having my kids i had to buy a house and started grooming dogs. that way i could keep the kids home. somewhere in there i went to school, 18 years of washing cujo the economy hit and dogs came last. after lying in bed looking at the roof and wondering how long i could keep it over our heads ,trucks seemed the best idea i could come up with. so i sold my horse, gave away my bird, rented out a room or two.and now i study all day waiting for my spot in driving school. gov't shutdown put things backwards a bit, but they say they are catching up. so here i am,still grooming enough to eat and waiting for my shot.

U.s.cdl in canada

Good point roadkill. lol. i think i'll just take this a little slower. still taking the tests on this site. i've got my score up to 93, but working toward a 98. brett keeps making me answer the same questions until it sinks in. i made a graph of the psi loss that helps a lot.

Prescribed drug question? DOT

I mentioned before that cr england told me they had a driver on 4 zanex a day. so be up front,do what you have to do. i also find comfort in just having my baby valium on hand. you,re right just knowing they are there works as good as taking them.

U.s.cdl in canada

will my cdl work if i move to canada? in 6 months my daughter graduates from high school and i should be working. i would like to let out my house and move to canada . what will be required for me to work there. i assume it will be treacherous driving up there but they do it every day. it will probably take more training but i am not in a hurry. this has been my dream to live there,if only for a couple of years.

Turning left

figure 2-14(or 17) shows the truck going into the farthest lane when making a left turn. i got a written warning for doing that in my car,even tho i needed to be in that lane shortly. i did not know that was illegal. there was not a car in sight(except for him). do they allow trucks to do this and if so how big a truck can do this. do trucks have more leeway?

Susannah f i am going thru the WIA program .go to the unemployment office. they will send you and pay for expenses. if they dont use the money they lose it. don't worry about past employment or no employment. i've been self employed most of my life but the economy has pretty much brought that to an end. i just walked in and now im in the required workshops but they have got a school that gets paid half upfront and the rest when they get you a job. keep taking the tests on this site so you will be ready to drive asap. its federal, so go tommorow.
