New Truck Drivers – Grandma and Grandpa Hit The Road As Longhaul Truckers

Meet Warren and April, a newly retired California couple who decided to enter the trucking business. Both recently retired from their jobs and decided to go into trucking after determining that it would be a good way for them to see the country while earning money.
