Janesville, Wisconsin. Having a lot of the rural stores in the dakotas,mn,iowa and wisconsin has made the learning process a lot easier.

Thank you everyone. Especially you Anne ( I didn’t forget ya) you have always been one of my biggest supporters . I’m definitely happy that I’m not delivering a load to a DG tomorrow. It’s all gonna be a mess!! Good luck Larry 😂🤣

How's the new job, very curious what you're up to after doing so great with your DG account. Seems you'd be ready for just about anything other than hauling 200 ton nuclear reactors, etc. :)

It’s going pretty well so far Harvey. I am currently in the certification process to be an instructor at a pretty good (IMO) CDL school. It’s taking some getting used too but I genuinely enjoy teaching. I figured I might as well pass on some of that hard earned DG backing knowledge to others lol

CDL:

Commercial Driver's License (CDL)

A CDL is required to drive any of the following vehicles:

  • Any combination of vehicles with a gross combined weight rating (GCWR) of 26,001 or more pounds, providing the gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of the vehicle being towed is in excess of 10,000 pounds.
  • Any single vehicle with a GVWR of 26,001 or more pounds, or any such vehicle towing another not in excess of 10,000 pounds.
  • Any vehicle, regardless of size, designed to transport 16 or more persons, including the driver.
  • Any vehicle required by federal regulations to be placarded while transporting hazardous materials.

I've been wondering aboutcha, too .. man!!

Speaking of.... do you have a broskey in TN????? I'll explain why.. if you wish; was an article I saw on a trucker's publication (NOT an opposing forum, tho.) Gentleman Jay (same last name as you) has the wherewithal YOU do ... went OUT of the way for the truckers & the motoring public. I'm thinking like 'YEP, bet that's PapaPig's bro!!' ;)

Best to you, always. That's AMAZING about becoming a trainer. You earned it (BY FAR!) and watching your videos, I'm in the mindset that you explain things, rather well! With the new laws set to launch next month, they must really be working on getting PROPER trainers; that's COOL !!!

What an amazing follow up, man. Thanks.

Thanks Anne. I don’t think I have any relatives in Tn but who knows. My dad was a Door to door vacuum salesman at one point and was fairly successful 😂🤣

Here is my view at work this morning
