Celebrate the holiday with these treats for truck drivers and regular drivers alike!
Halloween is (pardon the pun) a magical time of year. Ghouls and witches run around creating joyous mischief on October 31st. As a truck driver, be sure to pay extra attention on Friday night! There will be extra people, extra traffic, and extra obstructions on your route. But what should you do for your own Halloween celebration? Well, you’ve got a few options! Let Bay & Bay Transportation guide your spooky night!
A company in California has converted many different 5th wheel, 44’ long trailers into housed houses on the move. Terror Trucks, Inc. can be transported anywhere in the nation to spook and scare even the most brave hearted! Do you have what it takes to brave the haunted trucks?
If you’re not a fan of haunted spectacles, you can always settle down with a thriller movie of the truck driving genre. Joy Ride tells the story of three young adults chased across the country after playing a cruel trick on a truck driver. The scenery of the Midwest provides the setting of the movie, something the Bay & Bay truck drivers are quite familiar with.
Looking for more of a classic? Check out Maximum Overdrive, directed by Stephen King and based loosely on one of his short stories. In this movie, the effects of a comet passing by Earth cause inanimate objects to come to life. The terror begins when a group of people become trapped in a truck stop by the recently animated trucks and trailers. Filmed in North Carolina, you can visit the now fully-operating Dixie Boy truck stop that was featured in the movie.
There are plenty of other movies that feature the transportation industry (Smokey and the Bandit, anyone?), but none quite as spooky and scary as the two above. So this Halloween, settle in, grab some popcorn, and celebrate right! Bay & Bay Transportation will be here to turn on the nightlight when you are done.
