I am tired of being unemployed and my unemployment is running out.

So I am going to indenture myself to a long haul trucking company for the next year. I was suppose to go to Iowa for this, but I failed their physical because my diabetes was out of control. It's back under control, so I am off to another company.

4 weeks of training to get my CDL, another 240 hours behind the wheel with a company trainer and then 12 months of slavery, If you are watching Skype (celticwwolf50), Twitter (@SpiritBBQ) or Facebook (just as me) you may see me from time to time.

You'll have better luck finding me on one of the many Amateur Radio bands. Dusting off my equipment and will have it installed into the truck.

For those that really want to know the whole story e-mail will find me.

Ya'll take care, but I'll be watchin'

    Best of luck to you, CW. Times are tough on a bunch of great folks right now, so you take care and keep it right between the lines.
    Best of luck and safe travels CW. I'm diabetic also and am sure I wouldn't pass the physical either. I am envious of your great adventure. That is something I would have loved to do.

    Take care and happy trails,

    Good luck Pete. I understand, I just made a tough decision on a career change after spending 8 years in another industry. This economy is certainly taking it's toll on many of us. I hope it all works out for you!
