A Trucking Couple

Two's Truckin

A couple truckers, or a trucker couple, owns this semi tractor / more or less RV unit. They’re Duane and Cindy Anwiler and they’re from North Dakota. They’ve been trucking together for 12 years. They get a good amount of money, travel freely, and spend time with each other.

This story has a bit of the old guy-asks-girl-out-but-she-says-no-so-he-asks-again to it. He had to ask her out for several months in Nebraska where he was doing some farming for a while before she said yes to a dinner with him. They got married in 1980 and soon after returned to North Dakota, Duane’s home.
