I drove solo for the first time today and did 6 drop and hooks (trailers) It wasn't a long run..loaded a 53 foot trailer myself then ....only 3.5 hours......but I felt like a trucker for the first time, and wanted to share that all my hard work, studying, praying and omg courage finally paid off. Have to say if there was extra sunshine in SC it was the reflection of my enormous smile. I am backing that 70 foot behemoth and I know what I'm doing now, and docking it around corners -----I still get a chuckle when I climb down out of it and people just kinda stare at me, but that's okay......I figure it's because I'm so out of breath, sweaty, red in the face and just so darned good looking in my trucker garb (snort) those boots with shorts are so sekky. No really - that and my back brace - mmmmm hot Momma! Just wanted to share my first solo run.....with all of you! It's a milestone of hard work and some good news out of the D.A. Ranch. (road horn blow) honk!
