Hi all,

My name's Cameron and I'm working on a school project that involves micro/subcultures. I chose trucker's as that because I grew up riding along with dad on Saturdays. I'll be asking several types of questions. Before I ask any though, I want to see how many of you are willing to help me out, and if there is any information that you can think of that could help me out before I start asking questions.

Thank you
