These truckers were paid tourists today
Because we are truckers, we got to spend the afternoon in Old Sacramento and then take the short walk “home.” We were paid to drive to this city. Lodging was free in the truck. We were never far from the comforts of our home on the road (the truck sleeper).
Our food costs were the same as usual on the road; except for three ice cream cones. We each started with one cone. Mine was especially good so I was required to have another later in the day — it’s a California regulation.
Expediters sometimes call themselves paid tourists. Diane and I were certainly that today.
