Orange barrel season is in high gear pretty much everywhere you go around the country. And as someone who literally goes everywhere, you can imagine Jon Osburn would have a few thoughts about that. Mark Reddig talks with the man who drives the Spirit of the American Trucker. See Jon’s full schedule, “The Spirit” Schedule.
