On The Road Again, Maybe

First off, I want to say thanks to those who have donated to my GoFundMe. I plan to keep it going even though it is not nearly as active as I hoped it would be. But, in this economy, I guess it is par for the course.

Maybe I am finally getting things straight in my mind. I am thinking I will talk to my banker again soon, but I am leaning toward selling my beloved van. I may not even buy a car for a while. I am a much happier person when I am debt-free. What I do keep thinking about, even long before my van broke down, is trying to get my CDL back. Five years before I retired due to medical issues I remember my mindset was that I would be on the road until I died. The only hangup I will face is the medical cost for a stress test and sleep apnea test that I may have. It would be cost-prohibitive if I am required to take these two tests every three to six months. I do not think I will have any problem passing a regular DOT physical.

I will know a little more by the middle of next week, Meantime, I will contact my last employer to see if they may give me a pass on their requirement for driving in the last 18 months. I did work for them for my last 5 years of trucking averaging 165k miles per year.
