Favorite rig: a Peterbilt Model 377, and Lowboy trailer As a truck-driving, diploma-free, card-carrying member of the working class, I can honestly say, to quote Penn Jillette: "Computers kick ass!"

When I discovered the PC I found I could do some magazine work and still drive. With my  laptop riding along with me I could spell, make corrections without an eraser, chew gum, and know what side of the interstate I was on, all at the same time!
  — open-laptop laws pending....
 

Lately I have been dividing my off-duty time between typing years of handwritten MSS to disk from cartons of notebooks filled on the road, publishing a monthly column–"Don't Ask Us"–and writing articles published by Target Media Partners in their popular magazines. The transcribing from notes includes two mainstream novels, two thrillers, and a new mystery/trucker-P.I. series based on the "Axel McKay" radio plays I wrote in 1994/5, produced by Ralph Haynes, and aired coast-to-coast on the WLAC Nashville Network.  (Note from John Baumgaertner II, Bleep-Free Press administrator: the above statement has been out-of-date for some time. Aalborg is working on another book and went into seclusion (again).
         I do not have the time or patience for marketing, and could use an agent to work on commission.
