I highly recommend buying a rig. You're going to need/want a lot of practice time, and it's great to have a rig already built and ready to put on whenever you've got some extra time. You can buy a used Pilot for $3000-3500 or second gen Flyer for $4500-5000 or so. Well worth the investment if you want to get good, and the skills will translate to a big rig if you go that way later on.

Hey Matthew, I believe my old friend T.W. Li still teaches there. Do you know him?

Welcome.
