Delivering the U.S. Capitol Christmas Tree: “The Crown Jewel of a Driving Career”

  • BACKGROUND

    Larry Spiekermeier, an Owner-Operator for Whitewood Transport, has safely traveled more than 3.5- million miles during his 50-year career in trucking.

  • ROUTE OF DELIVERY

    In 2017, Larry was selected by Whitewood to make the 3,460-mile journey from the Kootenai National Forest in his home state of Montana to our nation’s capital to deliver the U.S. Capitol Christmas Tree to Washington, D.C.

  • THE MEANING OF A SPECIAL DELIVERY

    In an interview on Fox & Friends on Fox News, Larry described his journey as “the crown jewel of a driving career.” He reflected on the experience further in an op-ed in Fox News, where he said, “As I reach Washington and anticipate the lights that will shine from the grand holiday tree onto the lawn of the U.S. Capitol, I am reminded of the true value that trucking provides to America as well as the unique and special opportunities it provides.”
