EP68: Caribbean Vibes, American Drive: Reginald Clarke’s Driveaway Journey

Growing up on the Caribbean Island of Barbados, life was simple, free, and easy for Reginald Clarke. And though thousands of miles away, he retains the happy and positive vibe typical of Island life. But don’t mistake his easygoing spirit for a lack of hustle. No way, mon! Our boy from Barbados has had a knack for business from the jump. In fact, he used to save his bus fare by walking to school so that he was flush with coin when the newest video game was released. Reggie made his way to the United States when he was fifteen and, by 2006, was perched behind the wheel of a rig. Don’t miss the fresh stories and perspectives from a driveaway driver who’s always positive on today’s episode of the #SixFigureTrucker.
