I Passed the Tanker Endorsment test! I missed one question. The one I missed was How far must you be within view of the Tank while unloading and loading. They gave you 4 answers 15', 25', 35' or 50' I said 15 feet but the answer is 25 feet, at least I was with in the maxium with my answer not over. But the old eyes did not like to read the Eye Chart like I did 4 years ago so now they require me to wear my glasses when needing my CDL. Must be a sign of being over 50!! Mark H.

Got to hand it to you, while most of us spent our time doing nothing over the winter but fun and games, you have really been busy. If there is a fire this year, you sure deserve a chance to use that rig

Well I hope to be busy with it this summer to make up for the winter! Just hope there are no fires that take homes or injure people. We will allways have fires can't do anything about that, but putting them out fast is what's important. Mark H.

Mark, I didn't know you were going for the test. But, if I had, I wouldn't a been one bit worried. Cause, I've seen what you do and you keep nice dogs. So, why wouldn't you pass it.......gfp

Good for you! I for one feel better knowing there is a tanker driver out there who takes it very seriously. It's a good sign.

I'm happy for you Willy, we've been following on your project and witnessed the passion and hard work you've put into it.

Thanks if I had not passed it sure could all go down the drain fast. Monday is the next inspection, then a week later another inspection and the hard part is over. Mark H.

As long as a Horn doesn't hook you in the process if you slip! Now I can drive it to town and have some fun!! Mark H.

Don't laugh there are a lot of fire fighters who have lit fires just to have work putting them out!! Mark H.

But, got a really big brush pile that will need watching!
I hate's them gov't tests. Took me awhile to pass Coast Gaurd passengers for hire boating license. And that too was after all the paper work!

It seems you have to have a different mine set for Goverment Tests! The paper work is just a joke to make jobs for so many people. Mark H.
