And baptized the side of my trainer's truck with my vomit...im feeling better now, company is cool with it...I have a feeling I'm bout to be the talk if orientation class. I think I was dehydrated and then had some yogurt........anyway I'm feeling better and embarrassed.....

The wash ticket request was submitted on Qualcomm

Qualcomm:

Omnitracs (a.k.a. Qualcomm) is a satellite-based messaging system with built-in GPS capabilities built by Qualcomm. It has a small computer screen and keyboard and is tied into the truck’s computer. It allows trucking companies to track where the driver is at, monitor the truck, and send and receive messages with the driver – similar to email.

BMI:

Body mass index (BMI)

BMI is a formula that uses weight and height to estimate body fat. For most people, BMI provides a reasonable estimate of body fat. The BMI's biggest weakness is that it doesn't consider individual factors such as bone or muscle mass. BMI may:

  • Underestimate body fat for older adults or other people with low muscle mass
  • Overestimate body fat for people who are very muscular and physically fit

It's quite common, especially for men, to fall into the "overweight" category if you happen to be stronger than average. If you're pretty strong but in good shape then pay no attention.

The only thing that probably made that *less* fun was being in someone else's truck. Sorry... glad you're feeling better.

It could be worse, Moe. I'm glad you're feeling better. I'm sure it was just your nerves.

Actually it was a combination of dehydration and yogurt. I think the yogurt was bad, but it did not taste funny, so I tossed it just to be safe, in fact I am going to clean out my cooler. I have one of the little plug in ones with a built in fan until I can get my fridge.

Nerves maybe a little, not to say I am not nervous as today is my testing out for solo day, but I think last night was good ole fashioned food poisoning and dehydration.

It could be worse, Moe. I'm glad you're feeling better. I'm sure it was just your nerves.
