Oh boy, I have a horrible time picking names. Better start thinking on it now :D

Sometimes, the best CB handles are picked for you, by others. Like my guy & I .. we are Tomcat & Momcat ... LoL!

I'm excited for you, m'lady. I've got one more YEAR until 'freedom' of the son, hahaha~!

Again, kudos~!!!

ps: I'm super glad that Mr. Reid came back 'up in here' to help y'all looking to going w/ Pride. That's awesome!

Mr. Reid's advice, along with a couple other people who have driven for Pride has been a godsend for making my decision. I have only seen a few that were unhappy with the company. I do understand that all of these reviews, videos and comments are a highly personal thing...not everyone fits in everywhere. When I get to Frank's house, we will definitely get together...or when you get on the road again :D

How about "Casino Mama"?

OOh that's good. I might keep that one :D See, I'd have never thought of it. All of my pets are pretty much named by my husband (or the shelters we got them from, they are all rescues). I told my son it's a good thing he was a boy, because I had NO girl's names picked...and that was before they could tell you ahead of time :D

I’m on my 4 th day at southwest truck driving school in Vegas. 2 weeks class and 3 weeks driving ant range (5weeks because I’m in night class).

I have called them a couple of times with questions. Funny thing, the price changed by $1000 in a day. I haven't called the other school yet, just read their website. The price changing thing kind of threw me for a loop...what time are their daytime classes? I work nights so I need to figure out what kind of schedule I need to make it work. I would call and ask, but the price might go up another $1k lol

SWTDT in North Las Vegas is my 2nd choice for private school (waiting to hear back from Jessica, office closed this week for remodeling) The first for me is Phoenix Truck School in Kingman, AZ. Will be touring both places in the next 10 days to make a final decision. Feedback is welcome !!

Let me know what you think of the school in Kingman. Turns out I'll have to take a leave from my job to do school anyway, so I might be interested. I love Kingman, used to live there and have friends I could stay with :)

Vicki I will let you know. The course in Kingman is 4 weeks long if you don't already have your permit $ 4,495.00 3 weeks long if you show up with your permit already $ 3,895.00 Save $600 to get your permit on your own. I live in Lake Havasu so Kingman is close so I like that. If I choose Vegas I would take my RV and stay in that.. Win Win either way

OOS:

When a violation by either a driver or company is confirmed, an out-of-service order removes either the driver or the vehicle from the roadway until the violation is corrected.
