Why Trucker Wayne Became a Driver
Trucker Wayne got into big rig driving because it allows him to get paid to do what he loves: travel.
Wayne is a US Navy veteran (1989-1993 onboard the U.S.S. Carl Vinson), former Detroit autoworker, and has served as hospitality manager for several resorts and national parks. Needless to say that because of his previous work experiences, Wayne has traveled a lot in his life. So it’s no surprise that the trucking bug bit him several years ago. In his words, “trucking allows me to earn a good living and travel the United States – two of my favorite things!” Part of Wayne’s passion for traveling includes taking photos as a way to share his experiences and tell his story.
Wayne can now safely say he's spent time in all 50 states. Because of his truck driving job, he's been able 48 of the continental United States, lived in Alaska, and has visited Hawaii.
With so much to see in the world, even just in the United States, trucking is the perfect fit for Wayne. He gets to travel through our country's most beautiful places, while getting paid to do it! The life he lives is one worth following; where else would you get to see what life is like as a truck driver?
