To some people, trucking has somewhat of a road romantic aura. Truck drivers are people who are far from home all the time, traveling faraway roads and seeing places most of us have never seen. Although, for truckers themselves it is not so romantic, it is still a fact that they have their own lifestyle different from anyone else’s.
