Peek Into Someone Else's Life

The Long Haul by Finn MurphyHave you ever seen someone and thought, "I wonder what it would be like to be them"? Confession: I've always thought the life of a long-haul truck driver would be kinda cool. They're like the modern day version of the old ocean explorers. What things they'd see. What people they'd come across. Well, I have to wonder no more. I can read The Long Haul: a Trucker's Tales of Life on the Road by Finn Murphy.
