What it’s like going over the road with a trucker

When I went out on the road with my husband this past week I knew I was in for a week of confined space, food on the go, lots of time between bathroom breaks, not being able to shower with lots of hot water (much less privacy and the comforts of home), and having to tie up my hair or just putting it in a hat, which meant a hot mess because my hair is really curly and gets nappy when I sleep, especially after having it in a hat for a long while, BUT what I didn’t realize was how stressful, exciting, tiring, beautiful, and fun it was going to be.

I had a blast. I took a ton of pictures. (By the way, it is really hard to take pictures when you’re going down the road at 55+ mph.) We thoroughly enjoyed our time together. My husband…

      My husband loves to drive but hates the Over the Road part of it. He wants to be home at least every couple of days, which would mean driving more locally. Hopefully a slot will come open soon but I’ll enjoy going with him while I can, and continue to take lots of pics. :D
      There are schools that train you for your CDL, and companies that will put you through the school if you’re really interested.

        I hope you’ll get to go on a trip that will take you places you never been :) I imagine that the local roads must seem tiny after driving the freeways for so long :D

        I’ll have to look into the schools, love to giant beasts :D

        I’d never been to Kentucky or to West Virginia, so that was really cool. I’ll go again soon and hopefully it’ll be somewhere different… I’m hoping. :D
