George's uncanny to show up at the opportune moment: "you shouldn't get too comfortable talking trash about someone in a language you assume they don't understand, because you never know when there's a Jedi around."

Normal called … not really

| January 12, 2015

"I have a good friend who went out on the truck with her boyfriend as a rider for the first time last weekend. I got a steady stream of 'WTF?' texts – she quickly reminded me that there's really no 'normal' on the road."

Change starts with one step, and all that jazz

"'Operation Positive Press' has begun. ... I believe positive changes can be achieved. Go make good stories for us, get the word out. 2015 is the Year of the Trucker."

Truckers’ wives and spouses – the silent voice of the industry

| January 07, 2015

"There's no official 'Drivers' Spouse Appreciation Week,' and rarely do we hear stories of the support they provide, so I'm going to take a quick minute to thank all the trucker's wives, husbands and families for the job they do."

"It'll be nice to be back on the road," Wendy says, where people understand it.

The year of the trucker

"The Chinese calendar has 2015 as the 'year of the sheep.' I don't know about you, but I'm not feeling it. I say we make 2015 'the year of the trucker.'"

Deep thinking, and many miles to go

“You can't get two truckers to agree on anything.” This is an often used and completely untrue statement. You can get two truckers to agree on something. It's getting a third one that's a unicorn.
