Hervy.... Love your trucking DVD
by Don Navajo Freight
We watched it again today.. My wife says you speak wisdom beyond your years...My favorite section on the DVD is "Dare to Ride"..... I love the dramatic music background, love your your advice during the Ride ..and love the action video photography, as though I was riding along.. Awesome..
For my money, you could make more of these action Ride With Me videos, but make the ride longer please, say an hour,, instead of the current 5 minutes or less, and slow the record speed down to normal.
The action is a bit too fast for my slower paced brain to take in, if you please, sir.. The other sections are excellent too, but since I am too old and my health is too questionable, to ever be a trucker, the Ride With Me section gives me the opportunity to ride in a big rig which I could never do otherwise...
Once my health improves I "may", however, put another idea on your table...
Schneider Transportation (The Pumpkin Drivers) used to offer something like a "mini-vacation" ride with a trucker whereby fans of big rigs could actually ride shotgun for a price on a particular run, say NY to Florida.. the rider agrees not to interfere with the driver and just goes along for the ride, just for the experience of going OTR.
Schneider's price was way too unaffordable
but the idea was excellent...It was something like the vacation where you pay to be a cowboy for a week and go on a cattle drive out west....The trucker vacation rider brings along a sleeping bag and sleeps in the reclined passenger seat.
The OTR experience becomes their dream come true at an agreed upon price with any driver in the organization willing to go along with the idea... Anyway...maybe a possible brainstorming idea or maybe not...
There's a lot of questions still to be asked about such a venture...
But the minute you produce a " full length" RIDE WITH ME video, please count me in and let me know so I can snap it up.
