For the longest time I have had a fantasy about being a trucker. Exploring the country in a strangely solitary yet connected community of brethren truckers. I’m sure its not as romantic in real life as I imagine but I love the idea of it. Maybe it’s from my interest in sub-cultures or my love of travel in general that fules this. There is something very appealing about the open road and a destination and a mission. There is a good documentary film called Big Rig on trucking I would recommend. It’s a pretty honest look at the life and it’s not all pretty.
