Asphalt for breakfast

It's not for everyone; driving a semi. As you stand beside one of these, they're huge; 71 feet long, 13-1/2 feet high, 102 inches wide. When fully loaded, they can weight up to 80,000 pounds.

For some men I have met, driving a truck is a dream, a new toy, the idea that this would be fun. For women, I really don't know. I suppose that it might be regarded as fun if it wasn't work, a job. It's more than a 9 to 5, that's for sure.  While it is work, there are fringe benefits. You get to see a lot of things. There is some independence, a great deal of responsibility. These will be the chronicles of my travels. Enjoy.
