Trucker Dies Trying to Extinguish Truck Fire - Explosion.... 15' Crater Closes AR Hwy. 278

I used to be an underground miner, and used a lot of ammonium nitrate. It is also called Prell. It is very dangerous stuff to say the least. Too bad about the poor driver.

Game: How Do You Motivate Yourself?

When I need motivation or have a hard day ahead I turn on the coffee pot and listen to "Eye of the Tiger" and "Livin' in America" from one of the Rocky movies.

Question about the actual CDL

So far I've only done what I was instructed to do from my recruiter. I will ask him about the getting of the actual cdl. Thanks for the input guys. I'll let you know what I find out.

Question about the actual CDL

I got my permit here in Minnesota where I live. But how does it work when I take my CDL in Cedar Rapids? Will the CDL be from Iowa or from Minnesota where I have my drivers license, or will I have to get the CDL from Minnesota?

Pre-Trip Inspection Preparation

Thanks Bruce, that's nice to know. When I went to surgical tec. school I had to memorize all the different instruments and their different names from what surgeons referred to them in different parts of the country. But now days my memory isn't quite as good as it was then, but I'm sure I can do it, just take a bit longer.

Pre-Trip Inspection Preparation

Million Miler is a trainer there. He suggested a good video which I watch but the sound goes out about half way through. I have a basic understanding of the systems, but I have a lot to learn. Thanks Susan.
