The Spring Fling issue of Truckin' hath sprouted. Enjoy these five stories...

They were forced to have me as their only conduit to the world around them. Their only hope was a belligerently drunk Hispanic man with pupils the size of quarters. If that wasn’t bad enough, I couldn’t even properly speak their language... More
Thanks for your support!
