My name is Dick Lower.  My age is 86 years old.  It was 65 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 2016 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.
