Chris) What was an interesting and/or hectic moment you faced on while driving long-distance?
Wayne) Well Chris, that’s a tough answer. I have lots of stories for this one. Where do I start? I suppose an interesting one would be the situation involving my truck going up in flames! It all started when an associate of mine had driven over a mattress. Who would have a thought a mattress could cause a fire? Basically, when he drove over the mattress, the springs inside caught in the middle of the truck ripping through some of the wires and causing a short circuit or something, which in turn caused the fire.
Chris) Wow, that’s crazy! I never knew drivers faced these kinds of situations! What else has happened?
Wayne) Well, I can tell you that I have driven through all sorts of disastrous situations including: a hurricane, tornados, really thick icy roads, and an earthquake.
Chris) Whoa! That’s something right out of “Ice Road Truckers” – What was it like driving through an earthquake?
Wayne) Well, I was at stop, resting, and my I noticed things starting to move. It all happened so fast – there really wasn’t much I could do about it. I just waited it out and got back on the road.
Chris) That’s dedication!
