These guys and gals ran the "Big
Rapids Book Distribution Company".
In it's heyday, it was one of the most successful Corridor Tribe
money-making enterprises. A visit to their distribution center would
give you the impression that the place was run by a load of hippies,
which for the most part was indeed true.
I'm waiting for someone (Suzie Kwant?)
to write an intro to this site, but in the meantime...
I got to know of the Truckers through Doug
Larkins. We lived at the
Street Coop, and for a while Doug worked with the Truckers.
They were a pretty interesting bunch, books flying around the
warehouse as they packed their vehicles for book distribution.
Many stories and legends swirl around this intrepid lot and I'm
looking forward to see what these tribe members have to say.
Suzie Kwant is attempting to put together a reunion for July
2004, so we ought to see some impressive documentation coming up
over the next few months. If you are a tribe member,
log in so Suzie can
get in touch with you.
