During my secondary (1974-1976), university (1979-1983), and seminary (1983-1987) years, I drove many different trucks of various weights and configurations. I drove full time for three years between high school and university (1976-1979).
Here are only, and most of, the tractor-trailers I drove.
I delivered eggs to stores, bakeries, and restaurant in the Lower Mainland of B.C. for Vanderpol's Eggs. To make some extra cash (necessary for a full-time student with a growing family), on Saturdays I would often transport eggs, egg products, and other related things, between the Surrey and/or Abbotsford plants, and the one in Kelowna. This was before the Coquihalla Highway and its various connectors were built. I had the fun of always taking the Hope-Princeton Highway through Manning Park, about a 900 km round trip, with time added if I had to chain up the two drive axles because of snow.

Here I am sometime in the 1980s on the Hope-Princeton Highway chaining up the drive axles, getting ready for some serious hills, up and down.
