George & Wendy Show

Wendy Parker

I’ve been everywhere, man

| June 03, 2013

The things you miss -- and, better yet, the things you don't -- driving around the country hauling freight.

In the pioneering spirit out West

| May 31, 2013

Yes, even Pioneer women were catty.

Unwanted visitors at a Texas Walmart

| May 29, 2013

Seen at the Walmart in Lancaster, Texas: NO TRUCK PARKING -- VIOLATORS WILL BE TOWED AT THEIR OWN EXPENSE. And it gets hairier...

Freedom isn’t free

| May 26, 2013

Take some time on Memorial Day to thank a vet -- chances are you'll be thanking a truck driver, too.

Protecting your vital organs

| May 24, 2013

Use a little common sense, and try to pass some of it on to your progeny. And remember, insect spray is poisonous to humans, fire is hot, and ingesting gasoline is a bad idea. I know, and you’re welcome.

(Not) Making friends on the road

| May 22, 2013

Sometimes it's hard, particularly when dogskin boots are involved. "I'm not good at making friends, but I had to comment to the guy wearing them."

Hurry up and wait or pay $500

| May 19, 2013

A receiver's message comes in over the Qualcomm while Wendy and George have been waiting an hour in a line of trucks to get unloaded: "Late drivers will be fined $500." Oh the humanity!

Thrill-seeking, Vegas style

| May 17, 2013

"Try wearing flip-flops while walking around the Fremont Street Experience. You're trapped in a giant hangar with 11 million people who are looking straight up into the air as they mill about."
