Thanks for sharing. It's nice to see more and more drivers in general joining this field. Before truck driving, I was a trained emt, then I did non emergency transport, and after I worked as a driver for a senior nursing facility. I got attached to alot of patients, and seen alot of them die and that took a toll on me.With trucking you cant get attached to freight and I happy that I made this decision. Hopefully more and more people(male and female) would get inspired to drive trucks.

I must disagree with you, Bre! I have transported loads of really useful things in my trailers over the past few years. Useful items I could really see myself using: Zero-turn mowers, John Deere UTV's, Tractor Supply loads, literally tons of pet food, racks of clothing, sporting gear, canning jars, guns, and even two loads of ammo.

I could have become highly attached to those needful things.
