Blogging from the cab

| October 09, 2008

The Cascadia, Freightliner’s newest on-highway tractor model (pictured), is getting the reality-show treatment with the company’s new Slice of Life campaign. Follow the link for blog posts from three owner-operators given the opportunity to spend a year in a new Cascadia, outfitted with Detroit’s new DD15 engine, the operators’ only down payment a pledge to write about their experiences in the Slice of Life blogs. One of the truckers, Henry Albert of the Charlotte, N.C., area, was Overdrive’s 2007 Trucker of the Year, and we know it on personal authority that the former racecar driver is one of the smartest operators out there. Keep an eye on his posts for true wisdom from the road. For more about the individual truckers participating in the campaign, check out a detailed news piece on it at
