Our adventure began when we met up in Laramie, WY where our friend Mintu sells Clear Diesel and Auto Socks – good stuff that get you going down the road while others might stick to the emergency lines. Me and my new friends from Pennsylvania (Raymond Friend and Allen Kelly) had a trucker’s chat – we talked about Arizona and Iowa DOT and how we got busted for tinted glass and trying to help a disabled truck at night – we laughed and then took off into the cold night to fight our fight. Getting those reefers through the heart of the frozen Rocky Mountains, gliding over black ice in -10 degrees, was not easy, but we did it together. Running side-by-side through most of the night, we talked and laughed along the way and then stopped for a little break on a ramp at sunrise. We took the opportunity to snap a bunch of pictures, as well, because we know this is our lifestyle and it doesn’t get any better than this. The memories we make, while out doing our job trucking, are everything. Stumbling on new friends out on the road and finding out there are other people just like you is what makes trucking so unique. But, this kind of thing happens every night somewhere in the United States, because that’s what “The Spirit of the American Trucker” does, if you choose to embrace it!
