On the Road Again with Big Al Owens, the Big Rig Trucker
It's a Big Rig Epicurean Road Report on Crawfish House in St. Martin Parish, Louisiana; and a Sports Report from the Shoeless Joe Jackson House, in Greenville, SC. Big Al is on the Road again, driving for H & O, Campbellsville, KY. If you see one of the big white rigs on the highway, raise an index finger, it just could be Big Al, on his way to another new place to eat

By Big Al Owens
The Big Rig Trucker and Roving Food Critic
Big Al has been touring extensively for the last few months. I took some time in the Louisiana bayou to sample some seafood gumbo. I must say that it was the best gumbo I have ever tasted.
Crawfish Town, Breaux Bridge, Louisiana
Crawfish Town will be a regular stop for me anytime I am in the swamps of Louisiana. It is the 1st exit after you get off the long bridge heading west on I-10 in Louisiana.
Shoeless Joe House, Greenville, SC
I also had the opportunity to get to go to Greenville, South Carolina and visit the Shoeless Joe Jackson house. Shoeless Joe was a baseball legend. He has the 4th best career average of all time. Sadly, Shoeless Joe is not in the baseball hall of fame.
Shoeless Joe was banned from baseball after the 1919 World Series along with 7 other players for the Chicago White Sox or the Black Sox as they became called for allegedly taking part in a fix to throw the World Series.
All in all, life has been good to me so far.
Grateful for opportunities great country and trucking provides
I am just grateful for the opportunities that this great country and trucking provide me with.
Please take the time to thank a veteran for what you have and the freedom that we all get to enjoy.
My Dad Ron Goetz served in the United States Air Force and was in Vietnam. I want to thank my Dad and all of the others that have served this great country. Big Al.
