1. #OpRoadrunner progress

    As of 4 Aug 2017 #OpRoadrunner is a complete success. I have obtained all my licences. ABM2Z. 18 Aug 2017 I head down to Guelph to start training with Schneider National. It's been a good year to accomplish goals and I remain focused to complete many more.

    The AZ was challenging. I took the course with Transport Training Centres North Bay Campus. The thing that was stressful is the instructors oftentimes fell alseeep, in class and in the truck.

    Next #Op.......soon to come.

  2. #OpRoadrunner

    #OpDisenthrallment was a big success, it was a fun way to set a goal and achieve it. My next goal which is the continuation of #OpDisenthrallment is to obtain every class of drivers license in Ontario. My license would look like the following, ABMZ.

    A - Transports
    B - School Bus and any type passenger vehicle on the road
    M - Motorcycle

    Z - Air brakes

    Currently I have B,M2

    I can't get my full M until 2019 but I am able to operate a motorcycle anywhere and anytime, the only restriction is 0% alcohol.

    I start my AZ on the 19 Jun 2017

    In August I will have A,B,M2,Z

    I am naming the goal of obtaining a license for every class vehicle #OpRoadrunner.

  3. Motorcycle course a success

    Saturday June 3rd 2017 was my first time on a motorcycle. I was learning on a Honda CBR125R, small little bike but fun. The instructors at Canadore College were great, the course is designed to teach from the ground up which is great for people like me who have never ridden before. Once I got the hang of the clutch and finding the sweet spot things got much better from there. Saturday and Sunday were long days, from 0800 hrs to 1630 hrs we were pretty sore and tired. The most important thing to take away from the course is safety and never give up. There are times when it feels like "I can't do this" but keep pressing on and the confidence will come. One lady dropped out of the course because she felt her skill was not up to par, I know she could do it, practice with the throttle and clutch to gain confidence and I hope she goes back to complete the course.

  4. June 2017

    June will be a busy month, I will be completing my "B" class license, taking the motorcycle safety course at Canadore College and obtaining my M2 and I will be starting my AZ license with Transport Training Centres Canada. In August I will be able to operate any class vehicle in Ontario.

    #OpDisenthrallment was a huge success, best decision ever and everything is still going according to plan.

    The weather in Mattawa is taking its time.....It will be nice when the summer weather kicks in, sooner the better because I will be very busy training and working.

  5. Thou shall be Pardoned?

    The pope just announced that he gave permission for all catholic priests to "forgive" abortion.

    What do you think about this statement?

    Is is this a step forward or is this proof that people are so consumed by religion that common sense is thrown out the window? This statement in my opinion feels like we moved from the 16th century to the 17th century. For many, belief trumps common sense, belief trumps science and clouds their judgment. There are double standards for some religions. The statement from the pope tells me that women who had an abortion prior to him granting permission to forgive, were all condemned to hell.
