Just a "Old Trucker" who is getting back on the road again after many years of other worldly experiences. Papa God has blessed me in many ways and I can only praise Him each day. I will be 54 years old very soon and can say that being a trucker was a dream of mine as a child. When I turned 21 I went to school and hit the road. I can still remember as a child talking to 'Truckers' on the CB Radio, ( My handle was the "Popcorn Kid"). It was an old Solid State from Sears. I had shimmied up a large pine tree in the back yard taking my antenna and cable wire with me. I felt like I was on top of the world. After about a year on the radio, one night I was talking to a trucker and he began to cry. He was missing his own son at home and he said I made him feel better. I told him where I lived and he said he would come see me some day. Sure enough that Christmas he showed up at the house 'Bob-tailing' and my mother freaked out! (smile) She didn't know that I had befriended so many truckers. I had a list of truckers I would talk to,(A full page of notebook paper) and I spoke with them every night and on weekends too. Well, the driver had a "Hess Tanker Truck" for me that he had bought up the road as a Christmas present. That was the coolest gift I believe I had ever gotten. From then on I knew one day I would be a trucker too. Here I am many years later and I just want to be back in a truck again. Even when I was not in it over the years my heart and spirit was. Every time I saw a truck my heart just 'pinged' I believe a TrueTrucker is the salt of the earth. Life hands us 'Shipping Papers" and we carry the load! My prayers are for all the truckers on the road today and the future truckers who "Will Carry The Load". God Bless Us All !
