Over the Road


I have a lot of Cherokee Indian blood in me so we made the front of the sleeper basically a tribute to the native American. That's actually a real ghost. Feather and feathers are very important in way of thanking. You get to feathers one for wisdom and one for courage but anyway. So that's the front of the sleeper. On the side over the dining table we built her a mantle and we made it a Western theme mantle with rope outline. She's not a real rifle a real pistol but I don't know I guess you might a thief. Thank it was if you grab it off the wall and then on the shower bathroom door we put an assortment of bickers each of our mothers so we add different things around to to be more like a home not just. It's not just the trump to us. It's a way alive. When we bought this labor it was out of a salvage yard. It's important to emphasize here. That customizing a truck is not just about style for day on Phyllis. It's really an investment in both their business and the quality of life Ivad quite a bit of health issues. I ain't GonNa say all of her due to my French fries as I still like French fries but we gutted all this out and just built it back the way we wanted it and by doing that we made it possible for us to eat a lot better healthier and we have we'd about nine out of ten meals in the sleeper. Not Anything you do at home. I mean there. The night we ate eggs bacon and biscuits and and then yeah. Shrimp and steak. He barbecues that we've got a barbecue grill that matches the truck to its green looking in here like a cake or anything going down the road. You Know Ball on my biggest problem is I can't hardly drive down a road smell and all that cooking on my okay. We gotta find a place to stop. I'm about to starve to death. I like to eat. And she's a good cook so it's a good combination. There's a world of customized trucks out there as varied as the trucking business itself. I've seen sleeper cabs built out with any kind of cooking equipment. You Can Imagine. Ranges Ovens Espresso machines and grinders foldout charcoal or even gas grills mounted on the deck off the back the exercise equipment weights stair steppers. Sometimes even an exercise bike. Along for the whole I know at least one trucker songwriter with a professional recording studio built into the bunk of his rig. Hey maybe we ought to get Paul set up with one of those WanNa see more.
