Margarette Kirsch had a dream to see the country from the front seat of an 18-wheeler.  The Twilight Wish Foundation made the wish of the 82-year-old woman come true earlier this year. Kirsch joined singer/songwriter and 30-year veteran truck driver Annabella Wood, and the two traveled 7,000 miles through 17 states in 16 days. They made numerous stops along the way, including some at senior citizen centers. Wood is known as The Truck Driving Mama, and her music can be heard and ordered online.
