Truckin: NDN reporter gets taste of driving a big rig

When I was young, my grandfather worked on heavy equipment at the main garage for the City of Des Moines and before his retirement, at the Des Moines International Airport. Bob Mendenhall Sr. was always outside in his shop turning wrenches on “some deal,” as all in the family lovingly put it. From restoring antique Ford tractors to hauling brush and junk for friends, my grandfather was pulling a heavy load.
