George & Wendy Show
"Well here we go again. There's an ice storm predicted for the greater Atlanta area, and this time, they've decided to prepare by asking big trucks to avoid the area."
Wendy marvels at the wealth of hung shingles in America: On a split billboard, an "ad was spray painted, home-made, cobbled together with plywood and corrugated cardboard. It read: 'We buy junk cars.'"
If FMCSA is really concerned about safety, "they'll go after the companies with churn like a Wisconsin butter factory, and leave experienced drivers and small companies with longtime employees alone."
Following driver Art Huntley on his course of natural bodybuilding to lose weight and get in shape.
Down and out at an Alabama distribution center in the ice -- and how just a little bit of goodwill goes a long, long way.
Wendy responds to an editorial in the news recently that heaped scorn on truckers and the industry.
"Just another day in trucking. A crappy one. But that's OK because it still beats night shift at a nursing home, and we both woke up breathing again. So there's that."
"We're back to idle chit-chat in the truck. Idle chit-chat is an art, developed by the elders of the tribes and passed down as a method to pass time until the great ship comes to take us away."
