I am a 15 yr disabled Navy vet and retired owner-operator truck driver.  I have authored two books titled Escaping a Life of Quiet Desperation and Tales of the Old Moose which can both be found on amazon.com.  Follow me on Facebook on my Escaping a Life of Quiet Desperation fan page and on YouTube under Benjamin Scribner.  See Links page for links to these.

“Benjamin M. Scribner was born and raised in New England and attended Brewster Academy on the shores of Lake Winnipesaukee in Wolfeboro, New Hampshire. At seventeen he enlisted in the United States Navy, trained as a Torpedo Man, and served ten years at various commands. Following his discharge, and for the next 25 years, he earned his living as a long-haul trucker. Soon after September 11th he reenlisted in the Naval Reserves, was deployed to the Persian Gulf, and served as a Seabee’s Equipment Operator. His Naval career ended with a Medical Discharge, subsequent to a year spent at the Balboa Naval Hospital in San Diego. He currently divides his time between his mountaintop home in Idaho and driving his big rig part-time throughout the Northwest and Canada.”
