Hey Nina,

I gotta get on the road shortly here, so I'll keep this brief. Hope everything is ok now with your property and power!

Thanks about the transmission... It was under warranty (my car only had 20,000 miles on it!), so everything was covered, thankfully.

The book/movie with the quote about fear being the mind-killer is "Dune."

The podcast is "The Official Navy SEAL Podcast." Many of the episodes are about physical conditioning, but the one I referenced is episode #4, "Mental Toughness."

Enjoy!

Matt

Thank you so much Matt! I look forward to reading your diary as you go through your journey.

Dune . . . EPIC!

I'll check out the podcast(s) too! Heck, Brett LOVES pods.... hope he sees this! <<<< @Brett!

NINA (aka LRRH....) I was the FIRST to yap on Matt's diary! He's huge in my prayers, right now.

It's so awesome when m'lady Vikki shows up, too. ANOTHER female driver that beat the odds!! I keep in touch with her on F'palm, too. You can hit me up there.... I don't get on 'often,' but for friend requests and pm's, I do! (Ooops, Dm's .. my old arske, ha!)

Anyway..... Nina, if you go with Prime, Tiffany (Eichols) Hannah is a huge friend of mine on Fb. She doesn't do YouTube .. but maybe she did 'one' with joining Teams with Trucker Brown. (Please, no race cards OR tracks, haha!)

Nic & Carla are TWO MORE female (team) drivers to check out on y/T.... they are so hilarious, and REAL!

I'm SOOOOOOOO like you, I can't explain, you seem like a 'mini me,' haha!

Keep it up girl, you got this!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Best always,

~ Anne ~

I could have written this early this year. In fact I probably did :D Just not all in one post lmao I ended up going with Wilson for their training. I think the only reason they would throw someone out of training is not passing their CDLP test. I failed the first time. Yeah. Nothing like pressure. I sucked at backing. I cried during my CDL test because I couldn't back (It's better now, but still not great.) I demolished the corner of a trailer with my first trainer. I went through 3 trainers. And guess what? I've been out here solo since early September. These companies are more forgiving than you'd think. Don't sweat that stuff. They definitely aren't looking for perfection.

Thank you Vicki! I keep feeling better the longer I stay in here. Wilson down for the next on the list of patient carriers. Now to find out what exactly the new owner is doing with that western division.

All in one post—that’s me LOL!! You should be around when I get long-winded. 😂

Crying during the test? Pretty sure I’ll be doing that. Demolish the trailer? Cry again. And hope the trainer won’t kill me.

In all seriousness though, that’s very valuable information. It let’s me lower my shoulders a little.

I appreciate it Vicki. Godspeed to you—and drive safe.

Thank You so much Anne! I'll have to get back on there now, I see that. Been two years.

Appreciate you girl! 😘
