Thanks guys! Yeah, that was definitely a vacation I'll never forget. The climbing and the scenery was fantastic. It was a ton of fun and the entire trip went off without a hitch.

I'm strongly considering a trip to Red Rock, Nevada just outside of Las Vegas for a rock climbing trip in late October or early November as the grand finale for this rock season. Then the skiing and ice climbing season will soon begin which is my favorite time of the year!

Red Rock is beautiful. Valley of Fire is worth a look as well.

If you have time to get up into southern Utah, there are some beautiful parks there as well, though I don't know if they allow climbing. Bryce Canyon, Zion, etc.

DAC:

Drive-A-Check Report

A truck drivers DAC report will contain detailed information about their job history of the last 10 years as a CDL driver (as required by the DOT).

It may also contain your criminal history, drug test results, DOT infractions and accident history. The program is strictly voluntary from a company standpoint, but most of the medium-to-large carriers will participate.

Most trucking companies use DAC reports as part of their hiring and background check process. It is extremely important that drivers verify that the information contained in it is correct, and have it fixed if it's not.

I am on day one of CDL training. We are testing for our permits on day three and I feel ready, thanks to Trucking Truth.

P.S. cool pics, Brett (no pun intended)

CDL:

A CDL is required to drive any of the following vehicles:

  • Any combination of vehicles with a gross combined weight rating (GCWR) of 26,001 or more pounds, providing the gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of the vehicle being towed is in excess of 10,000 pounds.
  • Any single vehicle with a GVWR of 26,001 or more pounds, or any such vehicle towing another not in excess of 10,000 pounds.
  • Any vehicle, regardless of size, designed to transport 16 or more persons, including the driver.
  • Any vehicle required by federal regulations to be placarded while transporting hazardous materials.

Man that is cool. How high up are you? Looks high but kinda hard to tell. Unfortunately, nothing like that around Chicago except for starved Rock. Which according to legend got it's name from when a group of Europeans starved out a Native American tribe.

How high up are you?

Those pitches were about 80 - 120 feet high so I was probably 70 - 90 feet up in those pics.

Great pics, everyone. Thanks for sharing.

This one was taken in Wyoming. Just my luck, a curious dragon decided to swoop down for a closer look at me.

We all have some pretty cool moments in our day where we see some awesome scenery or get a chance to do something neat. I thought it would be awesome to have one thread here in the forum where we all share those moments. It doesn't have to be anything awe inspring. It doesn't have to change the world or move anyone to tears. Anytime you're thinking, "Hey, this is pretty cool!" just shoot a picture of it and share it here.

This is mine from today. I'm on Poke-O-Moonshine which is a mountain on the outskirts of the Adirondacks. It's not one of the huge ones but it's right down the road from me and I go there all the time just for a good workout and the fun of being in the mountains with my doggy.
