Company Driver In Training
Pirate-6 was my mission call sign in the Marines, (K/3/6), during the opening phases of Desert Shield.
Since then, I've learned a lot about myself, and the universe. I've had many "past lives", from Warrior to student, to healer, to teacher. But I remain always the student....never a "Master".
To this point, I have completed my CDL testing, (successfully, thank you very much), and obtained my Tanker endorsment. My Hazmat endorement is only waiting on the TSA clearance.
Although my CDL class was unremarkable, I gladly share my experience with students in my school. The level of Performance Psychology involved in the testing phase... and I'll assume in the training phases.. cannot be overlooked. I've seen my brother students taken out by the same demons that possesed me. To them, and to you, I say
STAY OUT OF YOUR HEAD.
You will die. And you'll go back home, sit at your kitchen table 45 minutes later and say "OH...F&^%ng yeah... I could have done that and that and ...yadda". But you let the tester... you let the trainer.. you let the externals into your head, and it just freaking snowballed, didn't it? I hate that shit.
Look, everything here.. Pre-trip.. backing.. 90 turns... downnshifting.. it is ALL a LEARNABLE skill. You don't have to Micheal Jordan to shoot a free throw. Do what you gotta do to make it to that next level.
There is a metric ton of info here... and your'e smart enough to make it to this level. Use this.
All I have to say. Peace out.
