Randy has been asked this many times over the years. Well to tell you the truth, it all started when he was just a little boy. Randy is from a small village in the cottage country of Ontario called Emsdale. It is about one hour south of North Bay on Highway 11.
The family lived off the highway about a mile and a half. At night, when he was all tucked in, he could hear the throaty rumble of the jake brake as the trucks came down the grade of the highway . He could only imagine where these guys were heading off to, what sights had they seen, what it felt like to be behind the wheel. This is where it began.
As time went on, Randy felt the need to hook up with the old iron horse. It was through the help of his then father-in-law, that he was able to put his foot through the door of what was to be a dream fulfilled.
