“Hi! My name is Debbie Jones and my truck-driving husband and I live on a farm in Penetang, Ont., on the shores of Georgian Bay. While my hubby, Darren, is hitting the road in his 2005 Western Star, I hold the fort at home working at the post office.
We have horses, dogs, cats and we just recently got two cows as well. Outside of working, riding and looking after the house and the animals, we’re pretty dull! However, we did recently attend a wedding with my husband’s truck in tow along with some others and created our own wedding convoy.
Both Darren and I are loyal Truck News readers. I started reading Truck News about four years ago when my husband worked for Laidlaw. He brought it home a couple times and we eventually subscribed at a trade show. We’ve been reading and loving it ever since.
I used to skim through the magazine, but lately, Mark Dalton: O/O has got me hooked! I really look forward to seeing what happens to the poor guy next.
I like reading a variety of articles in the magazine, but what I read usually depends on my mood.
The technical stuff is usually over my head, but I enjoy reading just about anything so I can learn a bit about it.
For example, last month I read an article about shifting that I really enjoyed.
It wasn’t really relevant to me – I just found it interesting. I think articles about other truckers’ wives are pretty cool and I also read Kelly’s column from time to time.
I also read articles that have topics that I know concern my husband – most recently articles about diesel prices.
And as far as ever becoming a trucker myself, who knows what the future will hold?” n
