It is nearly official. I passed my company road and written tests today. Hopefully tomorrow I’ll get a truck. They were going to send me to Austin by bus. I would have arrived at 2:00 AM. That didn’t make much sense to me since they thought they would have a truck tomorrow so I am staying at the hotel. They will pick up part of the bill.

Everything seems to be in order for me to be the mentor for Liz so hopefully in two weeks we will be back together.

After all I have heard about what I do wrong I got several compliments from my tester. He thought I was an experienced driver. He told me I did better than a person he had tested earlier who had five years experience. I have to admit his gear shift was much more forgiving than what I have been using.
