Almost one week trough the 2 weeks of theory hell, tomorrow its freight calculation time...today was laws and drivetime regulations, brain might explode soon :D

The lecture guy is 69 years old, used to long hauls in the 70s from north norway to south europe, talked about how they used to move diff sort of fish and some horrible pickup points here in norway...one was 400 meters down a hill of the main road, with a sharp turn around the building on the docks with the trailer wheels halfway out over the edge. Im kinda envious lol

Good luck with the course, you can do it!

I love those stories from older people, sounds like it was much nicer back then.

You didn't have all the rules and regulations back then. You where much more ''free'' and your own boss as a trucker. Here in the Netherlands you have fleet management that constantly track you, then you have code 95; every 5 years you have to have 35 hours of training. Otherwise you loose the code 95 on your license... This is mandatory for all EU truck and bus drivers.

Might be more rules and tracking now, but way back then you didnt live in smooth automatic transmission land, and like he told us today other than a few places in germany the speed limit for trucks was 70, thats painful lol
