“We got into trucking on accident,” said Jon Brown, a Landstar-leased owner operator. “We wanted to travel. We wanted to spend all of our time together, and trucking definitely fits the bill for both of those. We planned to do it for a year, and here we are 14 years later.”
“We both like driving, so that helps,” said Miriam Brown.
The “Welcome to My Cab” series gives professional truck drivers a forum to show their appreciation of the trucking lifestyle and inspire others in the industry. Volvo drivers can visit http://ow.ly/zVgoX to enter for a chance to be featured in an upcoming episode.
“Welcome to My Cab” is all about professional truck drivers and their passion for trucks, trucking and life on the road,” said Magnus Koeck, Volvo Trucks vice president, marketing and brand management. “This series lets us celebrate the lives of drivers and provides a platform for them to share their stories and amplify their voice through social media.”
Together, the Browns drive an average of 110,000 annually while hauling specialized freight. Their custom hauler, equipped with a washer/dryer combo, big-screen TV, double sinks and electric cooktop in the kitchen, allows them to enjoy the comforts of home while on the road.
