1: Secret Lives
Spending the amount of time on the road that they do, truckers are known for having a double life. “My dad was a trucker. He was a good man, but I didn’t know him. The first time I ever met him was on a long-haul road trip across the US that my mom arranged so I could get to know him. The bizarre thing was, he was a world-famous arm wrestling champion. We bonded throughout the trip, as he competed in regional competitions in preparation for the World Championships in Las Vegas.” – via Money Awaits.
Here we have a tail of someone that never knew his father was a trucker. This was a notable story and just an example of how straining the truck driving profession can be. Nevertheless, an interesting story to say the least.
