EP63: Open Roads, Open Heart: The Free-Spirited Driveaway Life of Chris Woods

Today’s guest saw Jerry Garcia and the Grateful Dead live in concert when he was sixteen. Chris Woods was hooked. He would tell you that everything you need to know in life can be found in the lyrics of a Grateful Dead song. His obsession as a “Deadhead” eventually led him on tour to follow other classic jam bands like Fish and Widespread Panic. So,  to hear that Chris Woods is a free spirit with an affinity for open roads should come as no surprise. And when he was introduced to Driveaway, it was a match made in heaven. In Driveaway, Chris has found the pace he’s always craved to prioritize time with his family and carve out space for his side gig as a professional artist. And as a tow-behind specialist, he’s even found a way to maximize his time and profits. Is it any wonder that the “Deadhead” gets great sleep in his Jeep? Don’t miss a minute of this fascinating conversation with Chris Woods on the #SixFigureTrucker.
