Well-known for his joke- and story-telling abilities, Don McTavish was employed in almost every aspect of the trucking industry for forty years. His laugh-out-loud tales will delight and entertain you.

Come along for a ride with big rig truckers as they ...

  • experience life on the road as a rookie behind the big wheel.
  • meet colourful dudes like Lonesome Len, The Pistol Packin' Partner, Zorror, Chrome Stack, Yabba Danna, and "Little" John.
  • battle wild weather and treacherous terrain, face soft roads, bone-shatterin pot holes and unknown destinations.
  • find themselves in goofy situations—from practical jokes gone awry to "Tiny" getting stuck in the back of his cab.
  • heroically rescue wayward travellers, including two determined old ladies who refuse to leave their ancient Ford in a snow storm.
