I have made it to Phoenix and have begun the process of getting my Commercial Driver's License for the job in Alaska. I have passed my background check, physical, drug screen, and had my first try at passing the CDL test at DMV. Scored only 72% after one day of studying. Need an 80% to pass. Had the first day of classes/orientation with staff from Alaska, got to ride on the bus (40' long) and meet others in the training class. Needless to say, I am getting excited about the prospect of spending the summer in Alaska.
Whoops!!! That nose of the kayak was suppose to fit in that shelf. I had to cut a notch out of the lower shelf, in order to get the kayak into the trailer. Then I had to prop up the back end. (but wait, I think I put it in backwards... turned around, I think it will fit???? When I catch up with the trailer again (left it in Quartzsite), I'll try that!) (Yes, sometimes I'm slow!)
I have been asked to do a sketch of my rig with me in the sketch. I will be creating that after I catch up on earlier commissions received. Then I will be having numbered reproductions made, limited number of 100. Number 3 has already been sold. These will be sent to anyone donating a minimum of $20 to the Alaska Ferry Fund.
Thank you all for your continued encouragement and support.
