Publisher's Summary

More than 30 years ago, Finn Murphy dropped out of college to become a trucker. Since then he's covered hundreds of thousands of miles packing, loading, and hauling people's belongings all over America. Murphy whisks listeners down the I-95 Powerlane, across the Florida Everglades, in and out of the truck stops of the Midwest, and through the steep grades of the Rocky Mountains. He tells funny, poignant, and haunting stories of the people he moves: a hoarder in New Hampshire, a Virginia homeowner raging when Murphy's truck accidentally runs down a stand of trees, a widow rushing her archaeologist husband's remains and relics to a Navajo burial ceremony in New Mexico. Brimming with personality and great characters, The Long Haul explores the appeal of manual labor and shows what happens behind the scenes when we call the movers.

    "A heartfelt and side bursting account of life on the road"

    Finn captures life in the road, the characters commonly encountered along the way and a sociological view of the country from a ground floor masterfully. Every second of the read was amusing and interesting with the only gripe being that there wasn't more to listen to. 5/5

    Story
    "Too many rants for my taste"

    An interesting view in the world of long haul movers. The author got off on several side rants about various topics which distracted from the narrative.
