Just a reminder as I see quite a few post by people headed out with a trainer or upgrading. Always carry your liquid toiletries, dish soap and laundry soap in ziploc bags as this picture shows they can save you from one hell of a mess in your shower bag. This was dish soap in my shower bag as I do my dishes in the sink in my shower room. Dang was I happy it was in a gallon ziplock.

I’ve seen what guys leave in those sinks, disposable dishes for me.

Found a turd in a washing machine once. What impressed me was it was a front loader, seems like the angle would have been difficult.

What to bring to School. 3 Notebooks, Pens, Leather Gloves, Clothing, Higene,Work Boots ( not tennis shoes), Sun Glasses, Phone, Clipboard, License, Birth Certificate, SSN Card, Personal MVR ( State Moving Volation Report), Work History, References (Phone Numbers & Correct Addresses) : Extra Money for emergencies. Like a trip back home because something on your driver's license is messed up?


Motor Vehicle Record

An MVR is a report of your driving history, as reported from your state Department of Motor Vehicles. Information on this report may include Drivers License information, point history, violations, convictions, and license status on your driving record.
