Well, it has been a while since I have posted on here because I have been busy getting my miles on the road. I have 15,000 miles on me right now, and I took my final test in Laredo, Texas. I PASSED!

Now, I have my CDL , and I have passed my Celadon final test. We are going to be routed to Indiana so that I can complete all of the paperwork that is needed as well as make a decision about what I want to do with myself once I get there. There are a lot of different choices that I can make, and they will go over all of them with me when I am there. The support that I have gotten on this site has been amazing, and there were times that the only thing that was getting me to go to class another day was the warm support and encouragement that I got here.

For all of the people that are thinking about going into training, make sure that you are prepared to do what it takes to remain motivated. The biggest reason that I see people failing is lack of confidence and lack of preparation.

Thanks to all of you,

Kindest Regards,
