"The FBI should send out a commendation to every non-serial-killer professional driver on the road that says, 'Congratulations and thank you for not being a serial killer!'"
Be careful throwing chucks in your storage box, particularly if spray lubricants are in there... "Sometimes, you do something stupid. It just happens..."
"Sometimes, being healthy on the road is more dangerous than you'd think."

"I should destroy all of my notes, because if anyone got hold of them, they'd surely think I was nuts, and possibly dangerous."

"I was hanging by my shorts on the second step of a Freightliner. The fact that my face was almost pressed up against the side of the truck kept me from having to witness the hundreds pointing and laughing at me."
