I've got a pretty cool job and from time to time that means I get to do some pretty cool things... For example, get to drive a $150,000 truck simulator for training and safety at Halvor Lines yesterday.   After having a few scenarios thrown at me, I appreciate our truckers a lot more.

We started off slow, just doing some normal stuff.  I was doing pretty good.  I even managed to do some decent turns with the big rig.  I avoided some traffic accidents, road hazards and other things.   One thing I wasn't so great at was a blown out tire on icy roads.

Halvor Lines bought this tool for help with training their drivers on safety, and as a tool to present difficult situations to drivers so they can be prepared in real life.
