I had just finished my last station for the night and just finished my paperwork for it.

I look up as I get ready to exit the small gas station and I see an OTR truck driving on the road that I'm facing with a large portion of a tree on top of his 53' van trailer.

Well, that's a first!



Over The Road

OTR driving normally means you'll be hauling freight to various customers throughout your company's hauling region. It often entails being gone from home for two to three weeks at a time.

Is a tree on the van worth two in the bush?

Branching out into a new freight lane.

The root of his problem was that he had been drinking so much that he was trunk.

And now he can't see the forest for the trees.

He couldn't have been trunk cause he was drinking barks root beer!
