After spending a few years traveling as a private yacht captain, Corona del Mar High School graduate Kevin Kramer, 25, came home to join the family business.
For generations his family has been involved in the moving industry and Kramer was destined to become a driver for his dad's Mayflower business. But after spending time on the water and out in nature, Kramer began to question if what he was doing — driving an 18-wheeler throughout the Western United States — was the right thing to do.
"These big trucks weigh 50,000 pounds and often are only moving 10,000 to 15,000 pounds," Kramer said. "They are burning major diesel — it takes more to move the truck than the actual goods…. It's completely inefficient for what it is."
