Dennis Mitchell has been strolling the boulevard since 1973 when he got his first driving job in a Volkswagen bug. In 1975 he joined the military and spent 4 years active duty in the US Marines. Three weeks after his discharge he climbed into the driver’s seat of an old cabover international and started his career as a commercial driver. In all those years, he’s seen a thing or two, and that’s where he gets most of the inspiration for his stories. Dennis calls 379 Peterbilt Lane, cab number 94, home most of the time, but his lovely wife (the world-renowned Aunt Barb) and their dog Penny the pooch live in their home state of Michigan. Dennis runs all 48 states and pulls a reefer most of the time. Dennis has been with 10-4 Magazine since the spring of 2018, and loves sharing the pearls of wisdom he has learned in his decades as a professional truck driver and owner operator.
