    If I remember right from my truck-driving days, I'm about 12 hours away - guess I'm safe! :D

    Seriously, congratulations Bryan - it's a big first step. Get as much behind-the-wheel time as you can, and watch out 'cause a lot of the drivers out there ARE nuts!

    Congrats Bryan - you'll do well in your driving career because, unlike most drivers, you're just itching to drive in the worst weather possible, and love and respect every minute of it.
    That makes you safer than 99% of the drivers out there.

    Bon chance.

    I drove to school this morning and did well, didn't go to fast, passed someone. Tonite i'm picking up a friend to go to a carnival (with my mom riding shotgun of course). All my friends are jealous :)


    cat320- i'm working on getting that 350 if the owner would come one day. I've ditched the idea of a lightbar and will have 10 strobes, for an undercover strobe package.

    Bryan the hidaways are great but nothing looks better than a light bar .I'm going to put them in my truck this summer .then I will have 8 on the bar and four at all my corners.I talked to one guy at the truck show one year and he said that he had 14 in his whelen bar on his wrecker.

    Seriously though... don't let the car get the best of you. Pay close attention to what you're doing, and expect everyone to hit you.

    Bryan, the rmv told you the permit was for a car not for an x-mark. Congrats!!! I know now to stay off the side walks. lol
