  1. I remember this very well!!.On e week., I was sick, but when they came on, I was sure to raise my head off the pillow, and watch the episode loved every minute of it!!!

  2. I really loved the series “Movin’ On'”. Thank you so much for creating this website and saving the show from disappearing. I was a kid in the 70’s and this show really captures the magic of that era in time.. The quality stories and “genuine people doing good” approach is sorely missed in 2020. Sonny and Will are realistic everyday heroes … out there on the road doing good. Wish there could be great shows like this again…actors like Claude and Frank 🙂

  3. Forgot to mention when the show was on I had the kid CB from the show and models of the truck. The CB looked like a mobile CB transceiver, but only had one channel (14?) and was probably less than a watt in power. The days when truck driving was like being a cowboy!

  4. Cowhands and Good Life were both filmed in Boise and surrounding towns. Many locations are still recognizable. If I ever get the chance I will take current pics and post and also see if the local newspaper and TV news have record of the filming. The hotel used for Good Life is still standing. Been inside it many times. I might ask there if anyone knows anything about it, but being 45 years ago probably no one who was there at the time still working!

  5. Movin’ On was my all time favorite TV Series. In the late 60’s I knew a guy whose last name was Pruitt, and they called him Sonny. He even looked almost like Claude Aiken! I was just getting into trucking and learning diesel mechanics, I had an old beat up International Emeryville and tuned the air horns to sound the same as the ones in the intro to the shows. I still have those horns, and they still sound great!
    Last week I woke up real earl;y and turned on the TV and was clicking channels and there they were!! Haven’t missed an episode since. I just wish they werren’t on at 4 in the morning! My tail is dragging by 7 in the evening! I guess I’ll go to bed now!

  6. DVDs are coming soon. Please be patient. In the meantime, sign up for our newsletter so you will hear about DVDs as soon as they are available. Until they are available, enjoy streaming episodes on Hulu, Yahoo View, Youtube, and PROClassic.
