Thanks for sharing.

Thanks for sharing this information. I am surprised that you are sticking with trucking instead of transitioning into information security. With your IT experiences and your analytical mindset, you would be a huge asset within infosec.

Thanks for an informative show

I am one of those doctors that examines CDLs. I'm happy to hear an HPR contributor discuss commercial driving. There is such a need for CDLs in the U.S. Having a CDL makes a person a much more valuable employee. And, it's not all about long-haul trucking. I see a lot of school bus drivers, ranchers with large equipment, propane delivery people, and those who work for the city or county.

I enjoyed this show. It made me consider getting a CDL. It's comforting to know that other hackers have jobs that are completely unrelated to tech. I have a construction job that involves manual labor and operating equipment. Sometimes seemingly asinine career decisions really are the best possible career decisions given circumstances unknown to others. I'll record a response show when I have time :)
