Trucks at Work

To trod the old sod

So I am here in Ireland, the land where 75% of my ancestors came from. And I can see from Dublin's airport all the different trucks used to support Erin's economy here.

European trucks are of course very different in many respects from their U.S. counterparts -- not traveling nearly the distances American truckers do, for example -- but are similar as well. Hours of service, lack of respect for truck driving as a career ... these troubles and others dog our European cousins, too.

As I travel about here, I'll drop a line now and then to record those simialrities and diffeences. Until then, Erin Go Bragh and good health to all.
