Following The Front Wheel West...

In the summer of 2013 I took a dream motorcycle ride across the country. This is a journal that I kept while making that trip.

On the Road with Bronco Billy - A Trucking Journal

What follows is an account of a ten day journey through western North America during a working trip, delivering lumber from Edmonton Alberta to Dallas Texas, and returning with oilfield equipment. The writer had the opportunity to accompany a friend who is a professional truck driver, which he eagerly accepted. He works as a statistician for the University of Alberta, and is therefore is generally confined to desk, chair, and computer. The chance to see the world from the cab of a truck, and be immersed in the truck driving culture was intriguing. In early May 1997 they hit the road.

Some time has passed since this journal was written and many things have changed since the late 1990's. That renders the journey as not just a geographical one, but also a historical account, which I think only increases its interest.

We were fortunate to have an eventful trip - a mechanical breakdown, a near miss from a tornado, and a large-scale flood were among these events. But even without these turns of fate, the drama of the landscape, the close-up view of the trucking lifestyle, and the opportunity to observe the cultural habits of a wide swath of western North America would have been sufficient to fill up an interesting journal.

The travelogue is about 20,000 words, about 60 to 90 minutes of reading, at typical reading speeds.

I NEED A TAXIS PERMISSION TO GO OUT: HOW DETRIMENTAL LEGISLATION and INDUSTRY MYOPIA KEEPS THE DISABLED AT HOME--- a short commentary and what to do about it

This is a commentary on the JACKASS LEGISLATION and myopic marketing practices that adversely affect the transportation needs of persons with disabilities and what can and must be done to correct these problems.

Many drivers will do everything they can to avoid transporting such persons--going so far as to refuse to transport a disabled person--even when his vehicle is equipped to carry wheelchairs.



The Author, John Bliss, a retired Calgary cab driver with over 45 years livery experience, addresses here the appalling treatment the livery industry meets out to the disabled by identifying the primary source of the problem, and what can and must be done to rectify the problem.

This book will examine how governments have been all too fond of succumbing to the dictates of hired lobbyists which results in legislation severely detrimental to the interests of handicapped persons. And it illustrates how governments repeatedly irregulate the industry in lieu of proper and just regulation.

This book is basically an essay on how governments should not govern the taxi/limousine industry by illustrating many very serious mistakes municipalities have made over the years of which four are described here as boners.

The City of Calgary, Alberta, Canada stands out as one of the worst cities for irregulation in the world and provides a model for how not to govern the industry.
