As I'm writing this, I'm about 6 hours into a 30+ hour bus ride, heading to Joplin, Missouri to start my new career at CFI. It's hard to believe it's really happening. I couldn't have done this without all of you at Trucking Truth. I'll be sure to post my progress on the diary page after I get to Joplin. Can't wait to get started!

Awesome. I should be in Joplin with my student by Friday. If I am, I'll post on here a way we can meet if you want.

Big Scott, I'll be arriving in Joplin about 12:30 am Friday, should be around until 4:00 pm or so. It would be great to meet you in person. Just let me know, I can give you my e-mail if that works better for you.

Turtle, thanks for the well wishes. If I need help, you folks at TT will be the first to know!

Your bus will be in Joplin at 00:30? Or are you at the LA Quinta? We will be in Joplin Friday morning and I plan to leave Saturday morning. Would love to meet up. Look at my profile.

Big Scott, yes I'll be getting to Joplin after midnight. Staying at the La Quinta for the rest of the night, hopefully I can get a few hours of good sleep! I dropped you a line, send me an email if you like.

JoAnne EC, thanks for the encouragement!
