Archer has been driving trucks for more than 60 years, racking up approximately 5.5 million miles behind the wheel.

"I do not plan to retire any time soon," Archer told Guinness World Records. "As long as my health holds, I will keep driving. I do not have the word retire in my vocabulary."

The great-grandfather of 26 said his career has taken him all across the country, hauling all sorts of different cargo.

"Anything you can haul in a truck, I have hauled it," he said.
