Looking for trucker's personal stories and trucker expressions!
I'd like a list of trucker expressions, vernacular.
I'm writing a novel and one of the characters is a trucker who picks up a run-a-way girl and whose truck is infiltrated by terrorists and a bomb placed in it on the way to the Los Angeles Convention center. I like my novels to be accurate and believable although they are fiction.
I listen to BubbaBo at night and try to pick up tips and facts, but I' love folks to write to me and tell me their stories, the terms the truckers use and I'd like to know about that trucking company that went out of business when the father died. (Arrow?)
I'd like to advocate for truckers without getting mushy & obvious. My dad had his own line of refrigerated trucks because he was a rancher and shipped fruit, and I've always admired the hard work of the trucker. In fact a trucker is my hero in the second novel I wrote.
