Truckin' Up! By Donna Carver
by Donna Carver
A funny and interesting look at the trucking industry and the trucker’s CB radio slang. From the passenger seat of a 'sure enough store bought large car', Donna Carver is 'stylin and profilin', checking out the 'seat covers', and watching the 'bushes for bears' as she gets the ride of her life.
For most of my life I gave little thought to big trucks and truck drivers except for the intimidation I would feel when those big rigs with their loud engines passed me on the road. I had some preconceived notion that all truck drivers were rough, tough cowboy types behind the wheel of a big truck, wearing blue jeans and boots, their shirt sleeves rolled up. It never occurred to me when I went to the store to buy my groceries, clothes or anything else that those things were all brought by truck. Some products are transferred from one truck to another several times over thousands of miles to get to their destination. I married a truck driver several years ago, and when I started riding with him he showed me a different side of this country, the side seen from behind the wheel of an eighteen-wheeled semi-tractor truck.
