49 years old. Married. 2 boys. My hobbies are

digital photography (beginner)and model
railroading (HO & N scale).I spent most of my career in the cabinet industry (sales)but when the economy went
"bottom side up" I was laid-off. After being unemployed
for about a year, feverishly looking for a job, I decided
to expand the horizon and get my CDL. I have been an
apparatus operator for a fire dept. for over 20 years,
operating all types of fire apparatus, which is exempt
from needing a CDL. I went to truck training school to
and earned my Class A CDL and have all endorsements
except passenger and school bus. I was hired by a trucking firm in Portland, Ore doing intermodal
operations such as hauling bare chassis to the rail
yard and picking up empty containers back to the
container yards.

Welcome to the truckstop on the internet Steve
by: Hervy

Glad you stopped by the internet truckstop Steve.

Apparatus what is that, does that mean you operated the ladder or equipment or is that what they call the firetruck?

How you like going over to the port? How long is the wait to load and unload? How do you like it?

My cousin in Jersey makes cabinets. They do high dollar custom work though economy didn't affect them too much I don't think.

I hope you will be using those Photography skills to upload some pictures.

I really need to hurry up and get me a camera so I can post some myself, Holla back at us let us know how it is going?

By the way how old is your boys and what do they think about you becoming a trucker?
