“My name is George Parker. I’ve been driving over the road for about seven years. I originally got into it to take care of my family and then my wife and I, for whatever reason, started working for Overdrive Magazine. I’m not really sure how that started happening, but we’re here at the truck show guilty by association in Joplin, Missouri. It’s just like a huge family reunion here and that’s really what trucking is about for us. It’s about moving free, but ultimately it’s about supporting each other out here on the road. Some people call it a lifestyle, some people get upset about calling it a lifestyle, but it’s just what we do. The men and women out here driving these trucks are like the blood coursing through the veins of our interstate system. It keeps the country alive, so I just feel really proud to be a part of that.”

“This is my truck. It’s a 2004 Freightliner Coronado. It used to be a car hauler for Ganassi Racing, Felix Car racing, 2004 and 2005 race season. I took it to Pittsburg Power. They’ve souped it up for us just a wee bit and it’ll go down. More than I need.”

“We do quite a few things out here on the road, my wife and I do. My wife is a writer for Overdrive Magazine. She writes the George and Wendy Show blog. I do a lot of photography and video.”

“One of the great things about trucking is that it takes me to places that I would have never been to without being involved in the trucking industry. It enables us to see the most beautiful parts of the country that we call America and it’s one of the most beautiful countries on the planet as far as I’m concerned.”
