Review from RPM Magazine
"Truckin' : The Odyssey of the American Truck Driver" is a video that answers an often asked question every truck writer is asked by drivers, dozens of times a year; "When is somebody going to write a book that tells people about what it really goes on out there? Truckin' hosted by "The Midnight Cowboy" Bill Mack, is a 60 minute video that does just that and alot more.
Driver Pat Quintana takes us on a trip from Seattle to Houston. Susan Moore takes us on a reefer ride from California to Minnesota. Dave Penegore takes us out where the logs grow, and Jim Davis shows us the life of a a heavy equipment mover. This action packed 60 minutes is a great overview of our industry.
The producers of Truckin', Linda & Christopher Lewis, have the right background to make this video work. Linda comes from a trucking family and Christopher is the son of actress Loretta Young, who pioneered class act TV shows in the 1950's.
Truckin' is a video that a driver can use to "show and tell" other family members and friends about life on the road in an honest and well presented fashion. It is one of those "pass around videos" that do the most good getting into as many hands as possible. If you have been looking for a great way to share your job with the wife, kids or relatives who can't actually go on a ride, "Truckin' is just the ticket. And every trucking company recruiter and every truck driver training school now has a tool to show prospects firsthand what driving is all about, for those with a professional outlook on life.
I received the "Truckin'" video. I enjoyed watching it! It not only shows truck drivers in a positive light, but makes their jobs sound very interesting and challenging. I hope that you are able to get the video aired on cable. Non-trucking people need to see it!
Thank you for showing truck drivers in a positive light!
