Deadsplinter Up! All Night: Trucks!

Would You Ever Be A Trucker?

Watching all the trucker madness recently had me wondering, would I ever want to drive a truck? Sure, I would like to try to drive one a few miles but don’t think I could ever be a Truck Driving Man.

Then I thought, I definitely could never be a long haul trucker. I don’t have the patience to sit in traffic, drive the speed limit, and stay awake for all those monotonous hours. Maybe I could handle short hauls like driving a Beer Truck?

That probably wouldn’t work either, I would end up drinking my haul and be Too Drunk to Truck!

So I guess the best I can do is Love Like a Truck?

10-4 good buddy. Keep your shiny side up and your dirty side down!



  1. When I was a kid a saw lots of commercials for the local truck driving school. I thought that would be an awesome job. Then I learned how to drive and realized driving a truck would be a monumental pain in the ass.

    • My old neighborhood had a truck driving school just a 1/4 mile away.  The new drivers would always be cruising the streets on the way to my house at 3 MPH and jumping curbs while making turns.  It was awful!  They finally went belly up but not soon enough in my opinion!

    • I used to go see those movies w/ my dad when I was a little kid.  That brings back such great memories.  That and Convoy were probably the most iconic trucking movies of all time.  Then I saw Duel and was fucked up for awhile every time I saw a truck!
