Road Tested Living

Bob and Linda Caffee  Freightliner Team Run Smart Pro’s are saying goodbye to their current truck.  Their new truck is being built, and they are running their last load in this truck, before turning it over to its new owners.

This seemed like a great time to post a link to another one of Linda’s videos.  This one is a tour of her truck and she shows off some of the devices she uses for cooking on her truck, as well as their care, and maintenance.

Linda is fortunate to have a truck with a custom sleeper. However even if you don’t have that luxury you can still do a great deal to live comfortably in a OEM sleeper.  I hope to be sharing both pictures and videos of my sleeper as well as other drivers in the near future to show what is possible.

I have been driving in the trucking industry for 9 years working for a major over the road refrigerated carrier. In "previous lives," I have worked as a police dispatcher while in college for Geology and Sociology, spent time in restaurant kitchens, and spent 9 years in retail electronics. Of all my jobs, I enjoy probably enjoy driving the most, with cooking not far behind. During my time as a driver my weight went up and my health went down. In the last few years I have made the decision to start taking back my health. RoadTestedLiving.com chronicles my story, as well as that of other drivers. It will share tips and tricks that, if they work for professional drivers with limited time, space, and equipment, they should be able to work for anyone. It also allows me to share my passion for the trucking industry, and good food with others. Simply put, Road Tested Living is all about Learning to Live Well from Life's Lessons on the Road.
