George & Wendy Show
"There are as many good trucking stories as there are bad, and while there will always be bad press, it would be nice if we could get just a little more recognition of the countless dollars raised for numerous charities by the truckers."
"If you see us rolling down the road, singing our hearts out and bopping away to country music, blame Tony Justice. It's his fault."
"The minute you post something to the internet, no matter what the venue may be, it becomes everyone's business."
"Don't ever let anyone tell you truck drivers aren't generous – especially with their family and friends. We've got a bag full of goodies sitting here on the floor of the cab that says otherwise."
Even if you had a genuine alien abductor to take you away from that most dreaded stretch of boring highway, it wouldn't matter, according to George: "Tires aren't rated for wormholes, can't run 'em. And I'm pretty sure some of your friends are aliens.”

David passed away on October 6. His kind and gracious wife, Shena, took the time to let George and Wendy know how much she appreciated their help with selling his Fitzgerald Freightliner glider kit truck.
