      The song Forty Acres by Red Sovine makes me think of something I would sing. I can definitely relate to this song when I was learning how to drive a five ton truck and deuce n half for the National Guard.

      When I first learned how to drive a large truck I hated it.

      I was always worried that I was not going


      to be able to turn the truck around in the parking lot of our armory.

      I thought I had broken my arm almost when my hand slipped off the wheel when trying to make a tight turn because the truck did not have power steering.

      The person teaching me to drive did not tell me it would be easier if I ...


      • would let it roll forward while trying to turn the truck wheel at first.

        They thought it was funny but I did not.

        I am a nervous driver anyways so driving big trucks was something I never really wanted to do to begin with.

        However when I had to learn I did but I avoided it as much as possible.

        Most of the

        guys were afraid of riding with me when I drove because they said I scared them.

        I never told them that I scared myself as well.

        I consider myself was lucky that I never had a wreck in a big truck.

        So maybe you see why I feel sorry for anyone driving a big truck and having to make a tight turn in particular.
