Well, I wondered sometimes if it was going to happen. I've been hitting delay and roadblocks at every turn. But Sunday I'm off to Trainco in Ohio. Very excited/nervous about it but I'm ready to persevere.

Some irony! My wife is leaving Ohio tomorrow morning to join me here in Cedar Rapids for Saturday night.

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.

Okay, guys and gals. I'm at the hotel laying in bed! 550 miles today, in the worst traffic. I guess I'd better get used to it! 😂 Did the hot tub, and pool and got a long shower. I don't even think I'll look for food! I'm nervous/excited/missing my family already. This is hard for me because I haven't been away from my wife in 24 years! Should have smuggled her in my duffle bag! I think it'll be good for us to spend a little time away from each other though. Let us miss one another. I just need to get used to it. Thanks for all the encouragement. I'll try to keep track of what happens so I can possibly do a training diary.
