Ed and Linda Stockton should be spending their golden years relaxing. Instead, they spend most days and nights working on the road, miles from home and family.

I was refueling next to Ed and Linda's 2000 Kenworth, recent winners of the CMT television show "Trick My Truck" in New Mexico several days ago. This truck gets a lot of attention wherever she goes and this day was no exception.

I wanted to talk with Ed, but too soon he was on his way out. (I was able to give Ed my courtesy card) As I was taking pictures of his truck, affectionately named the "Fort Stockton" people started gathering around taking pictures and admiring this beautifully remodeled customized truck. Congratulations again Ed and Linda!!

I think my favorite part of this truck would have to be the self massaging seats. :) A trucker's dream truck, no doubt!
