Hi, my name is John Perry. I was a long-haul truck driver for over 27 years and have logged over 3 million miles behind the wheel of a big truck. I’ve driven all configurations of big-rigs including Triple Belly dumps weighing in at 131,000 lbs when fully loaded, I have also pulled Triple van trailers when I worked for a line-haul company in Nevada.
I have had many years of experience with tractor-trailers with an 80,000 lb. gross limit where I drove for many long hours from sea to shining sea. New York city – 6 times with a 53 footer, that’s always fun, you should try it sometime, but beware, it’s against New York city law to have a 53′ trailer in town. That’s Black-Hat Truck’in!
I’ve enjoyed my career and am now retired and have time to get the word out about trucks and the trucking industry, which seems to be headed south in a hurry with all the new regulations and rules.
