My name is Dick Lower.  My age is 89+ years old.  It was 63 years ago I began to drive commercial equipment. In 1948 working in warehouse unloading semi's I also learned how to back them into loading docks.  Not working in the warehouse I was delivering or running small equipment for supplies.  1955 got promoted out of warehouse into a semi.  Forty years later in September 1995 retired as a Teamster.  Retirement brought new driving experience with buses and limousines.  It was Septmenber 2018 turned in my keys as bus driver ending my life as a commercial driver.  It is not without experience that my understanding of truck driver's life and world I write about.

Retired 1995 from trucking. Drove buses and limos to 2018. Retired again....

It is the purpose of this web site to give you truthful information about the life of truck drivers. Information that will help all decide if they wish to become a truck driver. All the draw backs and hardships are reviled so a person may make a decision to become a truck driver. What this site does not do is tell you how to drive a truck.

I am a writer and have been published in trade magazines even in different language. My driving experience dates back to 1948. Real life experience in driving commercial equipment is over 70 years..It is my hope to write a book about the history and struggle of the truck driver. During my years jof driving I kept a ledger of where I traveled. Now I have many stories about the legendary truck driver of the past. Some stories good, some bad and even very sad. I did publish some for about 10 years in trade magazines. It won't be long and I and my stories will only be a sparkle of a memory. So I wish everyone--------------------Happy trails to you in what ever path way your journey takes you in the World of the Truck Driver!
