How you got started pulling and first Hook when and where: Cody has been pulling various garage creations for as long as Amanda can remember. Amanda’s first hook was in Orfordville in 2015. She was terrified and she is pretty sure she got last place, but she was hooked from that very moment!
About you and what you do for a living: Cody is a heavy truck mechanic that can seemingly fix anything with a Leatherman and some brake cleaner. Amanda couldn’t have picked a better partner/mechanic/hauler/extra driver. Amanda is currently just a homebody, but hopefully that’ll change by the time this prints! Their life revolves around their truck, their tractors, their lovely bloodhound, and their family.
Special Thanks to: Their friends and family for putting up with all of this craziness! I can’t count the amount of holidays and birthdays we’ve missed to make this dream come true.
