A Good Buddy

This is one of the most informative, contemporary and entertaining trucking websites I have had the opportunity to review in quite some time. I have nothing but rave reviews. This guy obviously loves what he does, and that is trucking, which is like an addiction.

I do not care what your walk of life is, if you ever get behind the wheel of a big truck, take it down the big road, listen to the chatter on your radio, and experience the sheer exhilaration of seeing our vast country up close and personal, warts and all, you will want to do little else to earn your keep.

I have advanced degrees, worked in business, state government, and academia but there is no job I love more than getting up on a crisp winter morning at 4:00 or 5:00 AM to the fumes of diesel fuel as my truck warms up for the next adventure on the big road... 10-4?

I was referring to the original usage not the perjorative it has now come to represent, which seems to be lost on most... Nevertheless, it is not my handle. That is Kazoo. I will ask Hervy to take it down and replace it, though. Thanks for the 411. 10-4?

lol Dennis man you know those words has an alternate meaning out here on the road.

I digress,

We all thank you for the compliment on the website man.

Lifeasatrucker wouldn't be what it is without visitors like you (for instance your owner op insight post)and many others and my regular repeat offenders with answers and info like Jen, Jimmy, Nick, American Trucker, Becky, (and others that I forgot to mention)who give their knowledge and insight so freely.

I hope to greatly improve the interaction capability shortly to make it a little more fun and interactive.

Good Information and positivity will always be the core though.

And your right, I do love this job....mostly to see this great country of ours and meet the people along the way. Very addictive just like you said.

Later man,
