I Miss Trucking Today

This morning I was driving as the sun came up.
As I drove along the rural highway and the morning sky turned grey then pink then blue and orange, my mind was drawn back to the many years of sunrises I saw driving the truck through North America.

When I would drive all night to get to a destination, and I would be looking for my drop as the sun rose up in the sky I really appreciated the morning.

Today I was half asleep driving everyone who needed to be driven to transit or where they wanted to go; my mind was in another time:

When I drove the open road and I discovered new places, and saw land where no human was ever meant to walk upon...

Today the nomad in me is missing trucking very much.......

It is so cool you used to drive that big truck. I used to drive a Hawson truck, it was an ex army laundry truck but not as big as that. You must have seen some beautiful country. x Juliet
