Lindsey

(Billings, Montana)

Hello everyone! My name is Lindsey. I am from Billings, Montana. My husband Josh, drives for Watkins/Shepard trucking out of Missoula, Montana.

He has been there for almost a year. But, he has been a truck driver for ten years. He has had various kinds of trucking jobs. When we met in 2008, he was driving for a local company where he was only out two to three days a week.

After a while it wasn't too bad, but, in the beginning it was hard. I had never dated a trucker before, I have friends that drive truck and my brother is one, but it was much different than having a boyfriend who drove.

I missed him a lot. We talked every night on the phone, and when my job didn't interfere we usually had the weekends to do stuff together.

After two years, we were married. Best day of my life, he is my best friend and soulmate. I love him very much. We don't have any kids, just two cats, they are like our kids, their names are Lugnut (girl) and Edelbrock (boy).

Before and after we got married, Josh and I had been talking about him going over the road again and that he wanted me to go with him. God willing after a few tries, this company gave us our dream.

So we loaded up with the cats and see the world, one mile at a time. I am not going to say we don't have our days where everything gets out of whack and stressed, but with good communication, it gets resolved pretty quick.

I cook on the truck and LOVE it. After a few tries with what would work out, out here. We got a good lil setup going. I can cook just about anything.

I am friendly and love meeting new people, especially people that share the same kind of life as us.

Looking forward to meeting you all!!!

I love it, i am so jealous. I was suppose to be with my husband on the road in 1 year when my son went to college. But apparently he has other plans and women. Your a very lucky gal.
