he found a job with a mobile home manufacturer driving the tail car following the double wides from the factory to the dealers. His chevy cavalier had orange lights and metal bar matching the width of the wide load. .It was a few hour drive and he was kept awake by the steady crosswinds threatening to blow the trailer off the road. it was his first job in months, and was determined to keep this one, he enjoyed driving and this job didnt require that he talk to customers or answer phones, so maybe it would work out.
