Old Pond Life - February 2016

February 2016 Issue #63 No Images? Click here


With the gust of late December temperatures blowing in there is nothing better to do than keep cosy inside. Which is good news for us at Old Pond as this month sees the arrival of many exciting new books and DVDs which are sure to keep you entertained come rain or shine.

One of the new titles available this month is Keep On Truckin’ – 40 Years On The Road by Mick Rennison. This book is a step-by-step account of his life in the haulage industry which has spanned over four decades! Needless to say, he has seen the industry change since he started driving, which seemed like a time when crooks and conmen seemed to run the trade. We caught up with Mick who is now living on a narrow boat in the Grand Union Canal, to find out more about his stirring career and his inspiration behind the book.

About the Author

Mick began writing for various trucking magazines in the early 90’s recalling on his outlandish experience’s driving around Europe. He then wrote his first novel Diesel Rose which received fantastic reviews and consequently spurred him onto the creation of his latest book Keep On Truckin’.

In this autobiography Mick writes of the dangers of the haulage industry where he has been held hostage by striking Spanish drivers and even outwitted hijackers. And of the good times when he double manned trucks with his wife for nearly 10 years. Reflecting on his varied career with humour and a little sarcasm, he concludes that as good as those days were he certainly wouldn’t go back.
