I'm on the right snd Onsdag is on the left. He introduced himself to me on my first day of training at Roehl here in Marshfield, WI. It was his final week and my first.

Love this! Hope both y'all do AWESOME, and share the givings (and mis') in the diaries' section!

Best to you BOTH, y'all !!! Haven't seen HIM on here, in a short bit .. (?!?!)

Onsdag is Wednesday in the Scandanavian languages, the day of the Norse god Odin.

a day for kicking back with a long drinking horn of mead, chilling with ravens and wolves, well-deserved after Tirsdag's pillaging and plundering

That is awesome and amazing, thanks! I was trying to learn Chinese characters and Japanese Kanji from a tatoo artist pal of mine, and that didn't go very well; but I'm ALWAYS into learning something new.

Appreciate it!

First day of training and already meeting other members! It was amazing. Good luck out there Onsdag, and hopefully we'll meet up again.

Who is the other member and how did you meet?

We met here on Trucking Truth. I saw that we were both going to the Roehl GYCDL program in Marshfield, WI and met up with him there. All students stay at the same hotel, and I recognized him from his profile pic so I made sure to say hi.

Thanks Anne, it's been great and Roehl is an amazing company, perfect match for me!

Sorry for the lack of updates - the school is pretty intense and there's very little free time for updates. What little free time we have is usually best spent on homework assignments and prepping for the CDL exam.

As for the origins of the name - midnight fox nailed it. Though I don't drink alcohol or worship Norse deity. ;-)

I actually picked up the name a long time ago. Several family/friends began playing an online game together - Dark Age of Camelot - and one of the factions we played (Midgard) is based on Norse mythology. We wanted a fun and cool way for people to recognize that we were family/friends in the game and so we came up with the idea of using the Norse days of the week for our usernames - I just happened to choose Wednesday, or Onsdag in Norwegian, and it's kinda stuck ever since. ^_^

Hay, Onsdag; THANKS for the reply; really cool stuff!

You're fine; and I totally GET IT with the lack of updates, man!! I put my guy through school in '03, and he was (almost) too busy, to keep even 'just me' updated, haha!

Awesome on the name; for sure. I LOVE stuff like that. As long as you don't get it tatted wrong like Ariana Grande (LoL!) somewhere, keep it to ya!

Best always, good sir.
