The first ever solo voyage.

Welcome to the first part of Chapter 15, and if you’ve missed the earlier episodes, they’re over at the Trucking in English Podcasts pages.

Troublesome greengrocery this week, plus the wisdom of taking things one step at a time and the folly of inadequate planning. Always avoid Chicago if you can.

Trucking in English Podcast: The Less Than Load Life, Part 2

A handful of tight spots.

Welcome to the second part of Chapter 14, and if you’ve missed the earlier episodes, they’re over at the Trucking in English Podcasts pages.

The lesson of the week appears to be ‘trust no-one’. More impossible manoeuvres than you can shake a stick at, a sneaky trick, some wardrobe advice and quite a lot of yelling. But a happy ending of sorts…

Trucking in English therefore presents:

Chapter 14: The Less Than Load Life
Part 2: In which our heroine finally gets her own truck.

Trucking in English Podcast: The Less Than Load Life, Part 1

Another week another trainer.

Welcome to the first part of Chapter 14, and if you’ve missed the earlier episodes, they’re over at the Trucking in English Podcasts pages.

TTH, or The Terrifying Hazel. Not all trainers yell of course, and she doesn’t, quite all of the time. More reversing, the whole vexed question of load securement and our first crisis.

Trucking in English therefore presents:

Chapter 14: The Less Than Load Life
Part 1: In which our heroine forgets where she lives.

Trucking in English Podcast: Women Drivers, Part 2

Jobs lost and gained.

Welcome to the second part of Chapter 13, and if you’ve missed the earlier episodes, they’re over at the Trucking in English Podcasts pages.

Falling foul of the soppy physio, there is finally an explanation for the fitness nonsense which isn’t about misogyny at all. There’s a new job, and terrorism revisited, clearly interesting times are ahead.

Trucking in English therefore presents:

Chapter 13: Women Drivers
Part 2: In which our heroine is snookered by a daycab.

Trucking in English Podcast: Women Drivers, Part 1

Misogyny then and now.

Welcome to the first part of Chapter 13, and if you’ve missed the earlier episodes, they’re over at the Trucking in English Podcasts pages.

Moving on turns out to have been a daft idea. There are some musings on the changing times in macho-land and an encounter with a seriously patronising physiotherapist. Which isn’t easy to say.

Trucking in English therefore presents:

Chapter 13: Women Drivers
Part 1: In which our heroine looks back as well as forward.

Yay, not just snow and ice but mountains as well.

Welcome to the second part of Chapter 12, and if you’ve missed the earlier episodes, they’re over at the Trucking in English Podcasts pages.

The intrepid and slightly naive Brits decide that it’s about time they tackle The Rockies. Which turn out to be sort of big. And slightly dangerous.

Trucking in English therefore presents:

Chapter 12: Whiteout
Part 2: In which our heroine resorts to chewing gum as a coping mechanism.

Trucking in English Podcast: Whiteout, Part 1

Oh the joys of a Canadian winter.

Welcome to the first part of Chapter 12, and if you’ve missed the earlier episodes, they’re over at the Trucking in English Podcasts pages.

The duo are back on the old mail run, considerably livened up by the climate. There is some ill-advised chaining up, another new definition of cold and the remarkable discovery that, sometimes, keeping your mouth shut can be a good thing.

Trucking in English therefore presents:

Chapter 12: Whiteout
Part 1: In which our heroine remembers the important bit of the chaining-up lecture a bit too late.
