I think the idea of driving around the country and living literally on the road gives me a little bit of anxiety ( I crave security, if you know me, you'd know this) but it does look like lots of fun. Wide open spaces and an RV. The views alone would be worth whole trips. I'm not sure if a nomadic lifestyle is the thing for me but I know plenty people who would love to do this. I guess there's something basically American in that desire of freedom without boundaries.
I am also kind of worried about them because they're one the one side, female and on the other, black. It may not go easily down in some corners of the country, especially in the south or on very white midwestern towns. Of course they sound like they really know what they are doing and seem to be enjoying it, so more power to them. I think I would like to do some traveling some day, but of course, I would probably try to do it on an Airstream rather than a truck and I'd probably have to travel with somebody because I'm mechanically challenged and I would rather have company if I happen to be driving through the bible belt. Have you ever read Desperation? Children of the Corn? Stephen King has ruined the idea of driving around America for me. Oh, and there's also the news.
So yeah, two women truckers. And they sound like a ton of fun. Ready to put it in fourth gear?
