Welcome to Trucking in English
(Stop press: here’s the book!)
It began as a romp, North American trucking in an 18-wheeler with an unlikely lady trucker. The stories became a trucking blog, then a trucking podcast, the book about trucking was inevitable really. Now Trucking In English the blog happily offers you reviews, interviews and books by truckers, travellers and real-life adventurers. Coming up, armchair travel adventures and the best of adventure travel writing.
Click the links for reviews and interviews, dash over to the top podcasts tab for Trucking in English, the audio version, from the beginning, or click Audio Book to browse individual podcasts for one you may have missed. Check out the full blog for a bit of everything. If you really can’t be persuaded that trucks are fun, try some non-trucking tales. Carolyn writes about everything…immigration, road trips on four wheels, dog-sledding, cake making…
You can find out more about Carolyn’s previous book, other writings and all the nonsense that hasn’t spilled out onto the page yet at her author site.
But how did it start?
Trucking as a way to see the continent seemed like a good idea at the time. To this lady trucker it seemed funnier and more interesting than you’d imagine. As the trucking tales kept coming, it became clear that there had to be writing about trucking, the trucking blog, the trucking podcast and the book about trucking.
You could call it a travel adventure story, or possibly a travelogue. From early training, when it suddenly became apparent that 18 wheels and 13 gears involved slightly more than just driving about higher up, things didn’t go smoothly. North American trucking involved a lot to learn. Being a lady trucker involved learning things slightly differently. From how to hit a moose correctly to how to avoid being hijacked, from almost getting arrested in Baltimore to a terrifying winter tour of The Rockies, writing about trucking stayed worthwhile because things kept happening.
It’s time to talk to all those other restless souls with stories to tell and to find great adventure travel writing. Carolyn remains on the lookout for great travel adventures to entertain us all and remind us that our dreams are someone else’s normal. Have you got a story to tell?
