Greetings everyone, I'm Eirik and I'm in the process of pulling the trigger on Jim Palmer,

A little background on me, I'm 34yo, single, male, never married and no attachments, army vet,

I'm currently going through the recruiting process with JP to attend their CDL school, I'm confident everything will clear fine as I don't have and current traffic issues, (everything is 10yo or older)

This fourm has been invaluable in helping me reach my decision to start this new chapter in my life. I hope is some small way I can contribute back.

This whole lifestyle change has been about a 1 year decision making process for me. This is not something I've decided to do "spur of the moment"

Thank you and more to follow as I travel further down the road on this exciting journey!

Dan I suggest, in addition to what we have already advised, you might consider a separate new post entiled seeking information on Jim Palmer and WilTrans.
