I am a 54 year old truck driver. I am married with no children and own my own home in Pinal county AZ. I have been driving a semi for the last 5 years. Before that I worked in a few different call centers for 10 years. I can no longer talk for an 8 hour shift and had to find other work so I decided to go back to driving for a living. Unfortunately, the job I had before either isn't available or they decided that they don't need to pay as much. I was a test driver. I loved that job. Sometimes it was boring, sometimes it was fun and sometimes it was exactly what I like to do. Now I just drive a truck from Phoenix to Winslow every day. I have been making this run for 4 and a half years and commuting into Phoenix 50 miles each way for 4 and a half years. My little pickup had just 90,000 miles on it when I started this run and now it has almost 190,000. I love my little pickup and since I can't buy a new one like it and certainly not as cheaply, I decided to get another vehicle. This blog is about that vehicle.
