Tankerman PIC - DL

This is the course I am taking. It's going to be a long week. There are 8 guys in my class, and 6 of them have absolutely no tanker experience whatsoever. So we're not blowing through the material, but rather have been plodding through, entertaining basic basic questions.

I feel like I'm back in trig in 11th grade, and after Mrs. Gallowen explained the topic on Monday, she would spend the rest of the week beating it to death, while I dozed.

But I'm doing what has to be done. Friday I fly home, Monday to the Coast Guard to update my endorsement ... then theoretically off to Scotland.
