Solomon Scroggins and Beverly O'Mara make up one trucker team. They're hauling coils through Pocatello from Oregon to Louisiana.

Interstate 15 runs from Canada to Mexico through the American West, while Interstate 86 runs west to Portland and then Seattle. The two highways intersect at Pocatello, Idaho. We hear from truckers, traveling teenagers and a hitchhiker about the culture of the interstates.
