Life on the road is a unique experience, which, like revenge, is a dish best served cold.

And, just like that…I was a truck driver.

I knew that I didn't know it all. I was more concerned that I hadn't learned anything I would really need on the road.

I didn't realize how much effort it would take to get on the road!
