From Trucking Wife to Trucking Wife

Well ladies, Sean came home finally after about 15 days out. He drove his own newly assigned Millis truck home and he seems so very happy. He is loving this new lifestyle (except for missing me of course!) .

Just left again this morning for a pick up in Carrollton, TX that's going to Alabama. Missing him a lot alreaDY, but we did get him a bunch of new gadgets and one of those BlueParrot headsets, so he can talk to me on the road while he drives without ever touching his phone.

**TruckingTruth's 10 Year Anniversary!!!**

Brett,

Thank you so much for this website and Congratulations on 10 years!

My husband just started his career at Millis and this site's information helped him make the decision to go with that company. The site's forum has helped us both in understanding so much about this industry and I continue to frequent every week. I love to read about other people's experiences and we have learned so many things to help us both in this new adventure.

Please keep up the great work and thanks again for all you do!

From Trucking Wife to Trucking Wife

Hi JT3Wife!

Thank you for this topic, as I'm right there hanging with you! I'm wife, mother, and grandmother now. Kids all grown and have their own familys now, so it's just Sean, myself, and our two dogs (Girlie and Camo).

My Sean, just started his career in Trucking with Millis Transport. We are both very excited about this new adventure. He went thru Millis' CDL school and received his CDL last month. He has another 2500 miles or so to go with his OTR trainer before he gets his own truck and he is LOVING it. Today, he's driving from Cincinnati, OH to Elkton, VA and told me he's really looking forward to driving thru the Appalachians for the first time. After VA, he will be heading down to Albany, GA. So many miles in such a short time.

I'm really looking forward to seeing him in his new truck soon. Can't wait to see his happy face. I miss him so very much.

What do you eat while on the road? Is it possible to pre-pack meals?

Have any of you ladies tried those new prepackaged meals advertised for long-term storage / survival ?

I just ordered some from My Patriot Supply to try out. Looks like about $7 per day to eat this way.

Might be another option anyhow.

Getting sick on the road....It happens, and it will happen to you. So lets set out some helpful hints..

ACV (apple cider vinegar), - How much do you drink every day? A tablespoonful? How do you take it? In water, or stand-alone?.

Need Tips for Supportive Spouses

Thank you all so much for your comments and tips!!

Sean started school Yesterday at Millis in Alvarado, Texas! I miss him already, although I do get to drive over there and have dinner with him tonight. (we only live about 45 minutes away from the school) Yay!

He seems to be very excited and really enjoying the training today. (He got in a truck for the first time this morning. )

Looking forward to this new adventure.

Need Tips for Supportive Spouses

Hi! My name is Alisa and I'm very appreciative of those that choose to share their knowledge of this trucking industry, as my husband is about to go to a company-sponsored CDL school and I'd like to know all I can to support him in his new career. I DO plan on riding along with him someday, after his training is over and he feels it appropriate. This is an exciting endeavor for us both. He is in his late 30's and I, well, I robbed the cradle and in my mid 50's. hahaa We are VERY close and have been married now for 9 years. Children all grown up and have their own lives, except for our two dogs - Camo and Girlie. They'll have to stay with friends when we are both on the road, but would like to take one or both with us in the future, if the company allows such.

So, my first question to all that read this is... What advice, or experiences can you share with me about the trucking industry that could help me understand better your way of life, so I can be more supportive to my husband?
