Welcome!

Whether you’re a trucker, an ex trucker like me, or you’re just interested in trucking, I hope you’ll enjoy my new blog, Ex Lady Trucker. That’s exactly what I am – an “old school” former independent driver and owner/operator with more than a million safe miles traveled, who just happens to be female. I’m in another occupation now that I love, but you know what they say…you can take the girl out of the truck, but you can’t take the truck out of the girl.

Topics will vary. Sometimes I might wax poetic about an industry I truly loved being a part of, sometimes I’ll complain about it. More often, I’ll try to provide useful information, support, a shoulder to cry on, or a place where you can share your virtual happy dances from time to time. To help with that, I’ve established an associated Facebook page and Twitter account.

I want you all to feel free to comment on anything I write. You don’t have to agree with me on religion, politics, or anything else, but this isn’t exactly a democracy – I want families of truckers to feel welcome here, too, so I won’t approve comments that contain vulgarity, racism, hate speech, or promotion of violence against people or animals. I warn you that I’m very socially liberal, but I support the Constitution and all its amendments. I’m more a pacifist than a warmonger, though I understand when wars are necessary to truly protect freedom. I thank veterans for their service whether I agree with the war they fought or not, and I think if we send them into harm’s way, we have a solemn duty to care for them when they return. I believe in taking care of our elders, no matter what, and I believe in trying to leave the planet in better shape than we found it for future generations. If I could change one thing about education, it would be that we teach children, at a very young age, to be critical thinkers.

If you think you can stand it, I hope you’ll follow this blog and see where the road takes us. Till we meet again, stay safe and keep the shiny side up.
