My HC Training

Im tired. The last week and a bit have been absolutely draining for me. I started driving lessons to get my Heavy Combination (HC) License on Monday of last week and after three 5 hours lessons and then a grueling 9 hour session on Sunday I completed the training. I learnt in an old piece of shit truck with a 15 meter long trailer on the back. Now that I have completed it I can drive anything up to 50000kg, which is more than I will ever need. I only need the license to tow the trailers that we put our excavators on but had to go to the trouble of getting a semi license. I am so glad it is over because 5 hours of driving a semi trailer around town is too much and 9 hours was hell.

Apart from that the week was a blur. I cant really remember much of it. Had Mexican Thursday with a few people and the Ed hotel Saturday night to hang out and then again Sunday for Ashley's birthday. A good weekend ruined by a 9 hour driving lesson Sunday. Now its another working week again and its all a blur.

The BIG news is that the girl and I found a house that we really like so we put an offer in and are waiting now. Hopefully we get it, so keep your fingers cross for us!!

My god, that sounds like hell, I think it's regulation for all of the places that do the tests for HC Licenses that you have to take the test in a POS Truck, the husband got the same treatment. Glad for you that it over though. Also totally crossing my fingers that you get the house!! Good Luck and a possible congratulations is an order.
