“I am Justin Heinson. My company is Tumbleweed Express from Whitefish, Montana. I started driving when I was eighteen. I got my CDL on milk locally around Utah and as soon as I turned twenty-one I went to pulling dry van all around the country. I drive a 2001 Kenworth w900 signature 600 Cummins ISX eighteen speed. I pull mainly flat bed and in the past I had done dry van, tanker, and mostly pulling the bull rack. Right now I am leased to a carrier called Smoot Brothers Trucking out at Brigham City, Utah. I lease my truck and trailer on there. They’ve been treating me great so far and in the future I plan on leasing any future trucks on there as well”

“The scariest thing that I’ve had to deal with personally is when I was driving up through Oregon on a little two lane highway and I had a guy who tried to commit suicide in front of my truck. Luckily I had just enough room to swerve into the left lane since no traffic was coming. I just barely missed him. I stepped out and I still remember the look on his face.”

“The worst thing about this job is the time away from home. It didn’t really bug me when I was a new driver because at that point I was single and didn’t have any obligations. It was just a great adventure, but now I’ve got a fiancé and a kid at home and my priorities have changed quite a bit in the past few years. I’ve been working more on folks in my business and finding more freight that will get me towards home quite a bit.”

“For me driving has always been a very therapeutic kind of thing. I get that zen moment, or whatever you want to call it. Just being out in the middle of nowhere sometimes when you’re out on a nice open road with no other traffic with maybe even a nice sunset in the background is one of the few places I can go to get that truly peaceful feeling.”
