HELLO...i am Bart ........ i am a trucker
yes i am.!.... but was is a trucker.? well many different truckers will tell you many different stories.
and here i will tel you mine. (it is a short version, .... so don't worry.)
i was born 26 august 1959 in assen, in the north of the netherlands, where i now live again.
i went to several schools around here, and finaly got a diploma from a technical school. and went to work as a painter.
i soon found out that was not a job for me....so i got my truck drivinglicence and a diploma as well
1978 i began to learn a little about driving, delivering and hauling parcel's for a photocompany.
than in 1979 i started driving and delivering goods for a brewery. a lot of beverage's for bar's pub's cafe's and so on,
i also liked to drink a lot. it was mostley free and easy to get so...........................
i did not had a drinking problem ( i drink get dronk no problem ) that was my way of thinking in those days.
But after a friend of my died from alcohol poisening, i discovered that drinking was not always as fun as it looked .
so i quited drinking on march. 4. 1986 . and i havend touched a drop of alcohol sinds then.
i also used to smoke a lot, but that became to expansive, and smelly, so i quited that as well.
So i moved on........ first to a company in the area . delivering most loose goods, not to far away.
and later i went international.
In 1990 i founded BKO first for fun, and later i began to do more with it. i also started a store with al sorts
of interior stuff and decorations for shops . i also had my on promotion team with 6 young ladies,
to promote my products.
but it turnt out i am not much of a shopkeeper, so after 9 months i went completly back on the truck again.
( i still drove in the weekends and the nights do.) so i got back to work, for a company . who drove a lot of milk,
and other liquid foodstuff, with tanktrailers. i liked that a lot, so i am still doing that today.
now for a bigger company whit more trucks and tanktrailers in al sorts and dimensions.
I never got married, because i can not be on the road knowing someone is sitting at home waiting for me.
or getting sick and i am not there to help.or having children who get sick or wounded,
and i am on the road worying.
i don't think i could do a good job if i had to wory about others. (parents who get ill, is bad enough)
you may think this is selfish,......... mabe it is........... but it's my life and i have to live it ....
a few of my points :
i do not believe in a god, but i respect everyone who does, no matter what kind of religion they have.
i do have a political opinion, mostley democratic, but, i don not believe to use force, to press my opinion, to others.
i believe a good trucker wil help others, where it's needed. and try to avoid problems, ( al sorts of )
i also think it's importend to speak a few language's if you're driving international
you keep on learning and understanding....... in your on way and speed,...... ( but ..some learn, some don't.)
it is not just a job,............ holding a steeringwheel
it is a way of life.........well !!..........anyway .......... it's my way of life .....!!!
and what about you ..................?????????
