What Truckers Wish You Knew

Congrats to our winners of the #WhyIHaul contest. See our contest page for more details.

“Why I haul is to teach my 7 grandkids all about trucking. If trucks stop you don’t get food, clothes, fuel and gas. I teach them to respect trucks on the road.”

Mike Bockhold

“After breaking my back a second time, I had to give up bricklaying. I found a way to sit on my butt & provide for my family all day long. So, I’ve spent 20 years out here sacrificing so much but proudly serving my country & paying taxes the best way I know. Today I feel that staying in the driver’s seat (as a very safe driver), I’m also keeping someone out of this seat who might not be. Without trucks, America stops. God bless the U.S.A.”

Susan Couch

“I started trucking over 11 years ago. I never knew an OTR trucking job would become a passion, and how much this career would change my life. This career has allowed me to be independent and support my son alone. I love driving a big truck, enjoying the beautiful landscape across this wonderful country, and the breathtaking occasional rainbow gives a sense of peace to my gypsy soul! It has also made me a hard worker and gave me strength I never knew I had!”
