How long have you been driving? 2 Years

What’s your favorite type of truck? Before working for Jamie, I would have said a Peterbilt 389.  However, after experiencing the technology and drivability of the Mack Anthem, my overall opinion has changed.  The efficiency is remarkable and not having to grind gears all day really helps reduce fatigue.

Favorite road/interstate? I have yet to take the truck to some of the places that I believe would be an incredible experience; however, to date one road really stands out due to the sheer beauty……..US Highway 191 between West Yellowstone and Four Corners Montana.

Favorite State? Montana

How many States have you travelled to? 34

Do you have a CB Handle? No handle yet.  Some drivers call me crazy, but I actually don’t have a CB in my current truck.  In my opinion only about 5% of what’s on the CB can be considered useful information.  The other 95% is just trash as a result of driver boredom.

Do you prefer music, podcasts, or books on tape while you drive? I listen to just about anything that catches my attention.  Mostly music, news and talk radio.

Favorite type of music to listen to while you drive? My radio is usually tuned to a Christian station.

One thing you should know about me: For me, its all about faith and family.  Everything else in life really doesn’t matter.

Steve Long

How long have you been driving? 30 years (I started in January of ’91)

What’s your favorite type of truck? One that works

Favorite road/interstate? One that’s not frozen

Favorite state to travel to? Not states so much as places. I like Dallas Fort Worth, Southern California, Portland Oregon, any of the New England states, and anywhere with a Half Price Books and Music store.

How many states have you travelled to? Every one but Alaska

Do you have a CB Handle? I stopped using a CB 20 years ago LOL; it was too hard to keep up conversations.

Do you prefer music, podcasts, or books on tape while you drive? Music, news, and audiobooks.

Favorite type of music to listen to while you drive? I don’t have one favorite. Everyone has a variety of moods, I have a variety of music to listen to for all of them.
