Truckin’ Days


This is Barb posing by our rig when we were team-driving for Werner out of Omaha. We were pulling a trailer load of extension ladders from Ohio bound for Seattle. Our required six-weeks-on-the-road were completed and we were headed home to Eugene, Oregon for a week off. Our dispatcher in Omaha had texted us over the Qualcom as we motored through Oregon’s Columbia Gorge and instructed to wait for another Werner truck that was three hours behind us with a load of Lay-Z-Boy recliners bound for Portland. We swapped trailers. He went to Seattle. We went to Portland and then home. I think it was 1997.
