There are a lot of perks to travelling the open road. Some of Greeno’s favorite places to drive are the Big Sky country in Montana and Texas. He laments that he only has about five New England states he hasn’t driven through in a Walmart truck. Even though the scenery is great, he is quick to point out that Walmart drivers enjoy other perks that have helped him go the distance.
“Things are possible that you could only dream of elsewhere: special trucks, special recognition, family-knit ties and respect. Above all, respect,” he said.
After five million safe miles, many might think that Greeno would be ready to drive off into the sunset, but he reckons he has a few more miles left in him. He wants to work another 14 to 15 months, which he figures will equivalate to about 170,000 more miles.
Like many Walmart drivers, he proudly admits, “When I’m done driving for Walmart, I’m done driving.”
And when Warren Greeno is done driving, he’ll leave behind a legacy of safety that other drivers are sure to strive for.
