Johnny began truck driving from a young age, probably 16-17 years.
Johnny would ride shotgun learning the ropes from career truckers, some which were our father’s aquaintances or friends.
Old school Truckers who used their monikers instead of their actual names.
Handles such as: El Pepino & La Chalupa. Pablo Garcia used his.
Whenever people heard their handles,they usually knew which truckers.
Johnny often spoke about his learning experiences, travels, & places he’d been.
Also talked about the harrowing, dangerous highways & interstates throughout the U.S.
The mountains & passes he went through.
Johnny would say the only way he learned was by actual experience.
He drove all types of eighteen wheelers. Johnny drove for many trucking companies.
