Thank You all for your encouraging words. This forum is awesome. I missed my doubles/triples endorsement by one point. Some of the answers in the West Virginia test were a little different. I will definitely go back to pass that one in a week.

I did pass General knowledge, Air Brakes, Combination, and Tanker.

Doubles:

Refers to pulling two trailers at the same time, otherwise known as "pups" or "pup trailers" because they're only about 28 feet long. However there are some states that allow doubles that are each 48 feet in length.

Congrats! I was reading you intro post the other day and we appear to be in similar career situations. Didn't you just post only 6 days ago saying you were thinking about changing careers? You don't mess around! It's inspiring that you've already gotten your permit. I'm on the fence as to whether or not I should go ahead and go get mine. I have a long vacation coming up in November that's paid for and I can't start school until after that.

Thanks. Yeah I just posted 6 days ago. I'm on a long vacay from work. I'm almost certain that I will be changing careers. I would say go for it with the permit at least. It's good for six months. It is scary though. The thought of getting out of my comfort zone and leaving a rather high paying job. But what's pay when you hate your job?
