Learn What It's Like to Be a Trucker From a Lady's Perspective

Meet Bethany, a third-generation female truck driver who keeps a blog that she hopes will "refute some common misconceptions about truck drivers as a community."

In her "about me" on One Girl Trucking, she writes:

My career choice is both demanding and rewarding, just like most things in life that are truly good. Trucking has empowered me and made me realize that a determined woman can succeed in anything she sets her sights on, even in a profession that tends to automatically question whether she “has what it takes.” It has given me the opportunity to travel to places and meet people I wouldn’t have otherwise. It has filled me with confidence in my strength and abilities as a business owner, (in a way a 9-5 office job never could), and provided me with the life I love so much: debt-free, fulfilled and surrounded by everything I hold dear.

Bethany is currently on blogging hiatus, but check out her archives for tips on decorating your truck and insights on dating a trucker. She also frequently updates her Tumblr with beautiful archival trucking photos, memes ("Keep calm if a girl in a Peterbilt passes you") and snapshots from the road.
