Cool videos, maybe I missed something in another post but just curious why you took the trip? Was it work or pleasure? Where was the final stop and why? I think this info would add to the video story.

OTR trucking, I sure would love to get in to that but family commitment keeps me local. What tractor do you run? I got a couple sterlings and an old mack.

It was for work, I'm a long haul truck driver. The last stop (in the first post) is me getting home after being gone for 12 days.

I sometimes wish I was doing local but then I remember I would not be able to deal with Toronto traffic everyday.
The truck I'm in is a 2007 International 9900 with a Cummins with 450hp. a 13 speed Eaton and a smooth and quiet ride.

Right on man. I occasionally have to drive my nissan 12-15 hours up I95 from North Carolina to New Hampshire to see the folks and friends, and personally I got a lot of respect for those of you who put up with all the Legal and Local BS that goes with trucking. It's one hell of a way to make a living, and it sure as hell isn't easy. I think too many people in the USA forget about how some people put themselves at risk everyday to truck the things we need around the world.
Bravo sir.

Awesome vids thou dude, love the tunes with them too.

I have a rubber pad duct taped to the dashboard of the truck, and then I duct tape the camera to the rubber pad. It holds it pretty well in position and eliminates most of the vibrations,

And thank you, if you want more videos and/or songs, I got a few more on the Tube (http://www.youtube.com/user/quebeker1).
