    2. What are some skills they need to have to drive a truck?

    3. How did you get started driving a truck?

    4. What is the hard thing about driving truck?

    5.What kind of new experience do they get?

    These are some nice questions. Although, I would believe that the answers would probably be the same for both male and female drivers. Personally I tend to believe there is not real difference between men and women in this field, we all experience the same things, needs, desires, reasons.

    Here you go in the order you asked them
    1. Why do women choose to drive a truck?
    I was in the process of divorce. I needed a job to put a roof over my head and money in my pocket. Trucking did that.
    2. What are some skills they need to have to drive a truck?
    I would have to say a good spacial awareness. Knowing where you and your truck are at all times in the lane and on the road. BIG pluses when your a long haul driver.
    3. How did you get started driving a truck?
    I caught my x husband in bed with another woman. He had just gone threw a local program teaching him how to drive. So I went threw the same program and got my CDL.
    4. What is the hard thing about driving truck?
    Not being right there when family need you. Having to be on the road all the time strains relationships and family ties. As is apparent by the large amount of divorce in the industry.
    5.What kind of new experience do they get?
    Well hmm...When I started it was a bit odd to see a female driver. We were often thought to be team drivers only. Which i was not . I drove solo most of my whole trucking career/ Except for when in training at the first company.
    I guess having to learn to manage your time. And how to take care of your self and your money. Plus the occasional state troopers saying silly things like "You drive that truck all by your self?" lol

    I guess I forgot and kind of took it for granted. My x husband was a mechanic and kicking and screaming forced me to learn a lot of mechanics. That came into play numerous times in break down situations. (further answer to number 2)
