I was planning on hitting the road next month, but life tossed me a curve ball.

I went to my regular doctor ahead of a DOT physical just in case so I could avoid a delay from having a bad test with DOT physical. I was worried about my PB since I had gained a lot of weight since I retired from the Navy and had a problem in the past. I was right my PB is scary high and my doctor has put me on some meds for it. He also stressed that I should delay 6 months or so so I can lose weight and get this BP in order. I am not going to mess around with this so I am going to follow his directions.

Since I am going to be delayed any ways I decide to go right back to college and bang out another degree since I still have time in my GI Bill. So, hince a year plus delay.

I want to thank everyone for their help, support, and motivation that was given to me. I am planning on lurking still, but I just wanted ty o th as n everyone here for the help you have given me.

Stay safe, keep your tires on the road.
