Hey Greenhorn, I see you are considering trucking but your bio gives no information on who or what your about. You seem to be answering a lot of post with a lot of knowledge, but, who are you and what is your connection to truck driving. Just curious and in no way judging. Your post have been helpful.

Well my real name is Mike but I decided to take this name because it is suppose to be derogatory term for a new driver, however to me even a pro driver can learn something new so in essence they are still greenhorns to some degree. I have known people in the trucking industry as well so I have a general idea of what is needed, and I have also found a lot info on my own as I like to research things before going in all the way. I try and help out where I can with what info I have come across, and I am glad I have helped out in some small way. I am hoping that once I get accepted to go to Prime I can do daily videos and such and share them here to maybe answer some questions, of course the schooling part will be priority one first and foremost though. I have other ideas in my head for other videos but those will have to remain hush hush for now, or as I like to post Soon™.

I guess all in all I am Jack of many trades but master of none kind of person, and if I wasn't so lazy I would finish my bio page... That apparently I didn't dosorry.gif Also thanks for kind words! thank-you.gif

New beggining, the day you stop learning something new is the day you can pretty much pack it up. You've won the game, nothing for you to learn here. Good day sir.

Don't quite understand your post Lawrence H, but I agree that the day you stop learning is the day you cease to grow.
