    My name is Lea (that's Lee, not Lee-ah, for those who are new here and have missed my previous rants about it ), and I will be riding in with 'HONEYhas3' and someone else.

    I hope you're all on the mend soon, Rochelle.

    As for the course - I'll gladly say that I'm enjoying it a lot so far. One day down, two more to go.

    Re: CPST Course Who is all coming??????????

    I suspect that we're all going to sleep VERY well tomorrow night..

    It has been really fun. The first day I was a little nervous about time and getting the material across to everyone, but today I was able to relax and enjoy a little bit more. Tomorrow might be a little cold and will probably be hectic, but I'm looking forward to it. I'm also looking forward to being completely passed out for the whole plane trip home

    I enjoyed chatting with everyone after class today. I'm VERY proud of how well everyone did!! Even our two "little ones" who spent the whole afternoon with us in class!

    -Nicole.

    A belated congrats to instructors and students alike! I'm very jealous. Well, not of the weather, but of the class!

    Hope you all had a great time!!

    We had a great time, and some great company! I have a totally different view of the police now--they were a blast. VERY devoted people. The CS.org folks were such keeners, though It was GREAT! Congratulations to everyone--what an amazing experience this last few days have b.....................ZzzZzzz...

    Yeah, like I sleep.

    Hopefully you didn't have to wait too long for your flight to leave. I'm guessing you're still in the air or just having landed at this point. My flight landed 1.5hrs late... Can I say I pity the poor passenger in front of ds?

    Just posting complete agreement with Nicole that this was just an amazing experience and we had a wonderful group of people.
