  3. Road Trip

    by , 08.22.2008 at 06.27 PM (My new career in trucking)
    I thought I'd take a little vacation before school started so I drove up to Ohio to visit relatives. I was surprised how much more careful I was driving around trucks, and keeping my speed down.

    On my first overseas tour I felt really out of place. I was stationed in Japan, btw I'm 6'1 and very pastie, I stick out just a bit. You know what I learned though. You have to show you are not the stereotype that everyone thinks you ...
