Today I got a message "Happy Prime Anniversary". I then realized the date. My first year is down with one preventable my first month solo and a non preventable (drunk driver hit me fled scene with witnesses).

I want to thank Brett for this site. I passed the written on first try only cause of the High Road Training. The encouragement and information I've gotten from all you wonderful posters really helped me transition faster than expected.

Old school, g town, rick s, eroll, sue... Thanks for all the info and help...from.backing to mechanical questions you've been there.

Tractor man, Paul, glad hands, bravo Chickie monster,/Sam the wrestler, miss Myoshi ...thanks for making this.place so fun for me ;)

Now that I got my year...here's a warning.... Stay the heck out of my way...I got some rolling to do hahhahhah
