I loved learning how to drive a big rig and pushing myself to be better. I loved travelling to different places and meeting different kinds of people
Over-The-Road Truck Driver (Former Employee) – Salt Lake City, UT – December 3, 2013
I mainly did this after both my parents had died within 9 months of each other, and then my youngest son graduated from high school and went off to college. It was like I was an "orphan", :Empty Nester", and "menopausal"! I was grieving and driving and concentrating on this adventure and that is what made the grieving process possible. I was always exhausted but the driving accomplished my grieving. The trucking driving school was great, my trainer was fantastic and it was an experience that one day I am going to write about.

Long driving periods and adverse weather conditions.
