Lonnie Archibald has written another trucking book this one titled Keep On Truckin’ (More of The Lives and Times of Olympic Peninsula Truck Drivers) which is similar to his last book Old Trucks and Gear Jammers. In this book, he has written stories on approximately 25 different drivers who are either still driving on the Olympic Peninsula or who once drove here and are now retired.
The stories were gathered during interviews conducted by Archibald this past year. Many photos also appear in the book.
Lonnie’s first book signing will be at the Forks VFW located on Spartan Ave. on Saturday, Dec. 2, from 10 a.m.-3 p.m. He will also give a talk and have a book signing from noon-3 p.m. during the West End Historical Society meeting to be held at the Congregational Church located on Spartan Ave. on Tuesday, Dec. 19. The public is invited.
Two of his other books here on the home front (WWII in Clallam County) and Old Trucks and Gear Jammers will also be available at the singings.
