So, one night recently I was sitting at a customer’s place, a meat plant with a lot of dirt lots, which were a muddy mess because it was raining cats, dogs and frogs that night, when all the sudden a ray of light rolled in. As my tired eyes adjusted, I saw a super-shiny old rig pullin’ in, and it was looking top-notch, even in that horrible weather. Upon closer inspection, I saw its front license plate, which said, WAYIROL, and the rear plate, which read OHAILNO, and I knew that I had to talk to this guy. The driver and owner, Randy Roush from Newton, Iowa, was a cool dude, and his silver and purple 1987 Peterbilt 359 and stainless 2006 Great Dane reefer were a sight to see that dreary night. I asked him, “What’s your story – how do you keep this rig looking so clean?” His answer floored me when he said, “I like to look sharp, so I hand wash this rig every day when I get home. She has never been to a truck wash or a mechanic shop, since I work on her myself, as well. It’s just the way I roll!” He went on to tell me that he works 7 days a week, so that means he hand washes her 7 times a week because, as he put it, “I never put her away dirty!” If this is not a shining example of “The Spirit of the American Trucker” than I don’t know what is! Nice job, Randy.
