Hi My name is Dae and I am doing a research assignment for a course I’m taking. I wanted to talk about how truckers maintain an healthy lifestyle when working such a strenuous job. What would make being a trucker better for your physical and mental health? I have loved ones that are in the trucking industry and questioned what could be helpful as far as having balance when you are on the road. And coming from a woman’s perspective, it may shine more light on what the industry can improve for workers

I have a few questions and would love to hear feedback if anyone is interested.

Thank you and would truly appreciate any participation!!!

Howdy, Dae!

Our own Kearsey (Prime driver/trainer and moderator on Trucking Truth) has a SPLOOSH of videos; many catering to WOMEN'S needs in the industry, on many 'personal' levels.

Here's a link to her channel, and you can find her posts on TT by her, under the same name.

Wish you the best!

ps: Old School also has a HECKUVA blog, where he took his wife and 3 daughters OTR (separately, and they all look alike so don't ask me who's who, haha!) It's in his profile. He's a walking wealth of information!!

pps: I'd LOVE to see the end result of your project. NickJordan is doing a similar study (in the general category) for his senior thesis. We actually LOVE THIS STUFF.. (especially us older'ns with kids IN college, ie: me, hahaha!)

OTR:

Over The Road

OTR driving normally means you'll be hauling freight to various customers throughout your company's hauling region. It often entails being gone from home for two to three weeks at a time.

OWI:

Operating While Intoxicated

OOS:

When a violation by either a driver or company is confirmed, an out-of-service order removes either the driver or the vehicle from the roadway until the violation is corrected.

Anytime, and anything I can do to help, outside the realm. Kearsey's email is in her profile, as is mine. I'm just a 20 plus year trucker's wife with a paltry B.S. degree, haha!

Brett (site owner) is a scholar AND a trucker. He's got shoes filled, for sure. You can, as you see to!

Stick around; ask and we shall answer! I check my emails; if I can help, let me know!
