Newby here...first post. Retirement is looming & RVing is something I've been yearning to do for years. The HDT section sucked me right in, so I've been lurking. Been driving commercially for 38 years based out of Colo. The bulk (no pun intended) of my career was served as a "suicide jockey" driving a gasoline transport tanker over & thru the Rocky Mtns of Colorado on a nightly basis. "Semi-Retired" now (don't drive a semi anymore & currently only have to work a 40 hr work week driving a MDT ). Grandfathered into the Class A CDL license when it was introduced & have kept it active ever since, so currently I have every endorsement except bus including...Class A - triples - doubles - tanker - hazmat - & motorcycle. Quite honestly I'm getting tired. Tired of the DOT Physical every year. Tired of the Homeland Security ten finger security check to renew hazmat & the PITA requirements attached. Tired of working in general. That said...I'm not willing to give up what I've earned over the years...when is it time? Due next July to renew & should be able to pass....good for 4 more years. Should I even bother? Noni...was born & raised in Alaska. International "sky goddess"...straight out of HS...she went to flight school & secured a job with Braniff Airlines when being a Flight Attendant was a much cherished & fun line of work. No stranger to travel she's a prime candidate for living full time in an RV. That said we are still a ways away from selling everything & hitting the road. So...keep it or ditch it is the question? The CDL I mean. Noni's a keeper. Input welcome & appreciated. Gramps
