My first truck was an old BJ Express truck Brown Freightliner that went out of business.


I didn't know much when I started but I did not like the name on the truck didn't know that they went out of business stopped at a hardware store and picked up some brown primer climbed up on top of the truck and spray-painted BJ Express.

Thank goodness I did because I guess the owner owed a lot of money to drivers but they would still pick out my truck.

Hauled a ICCC out of Lake City the company that bought the tractor was Yoda Trucking I believe it was in Ohio.

I ran the road with my husband for 3 months we were going up and down mountains where we never been before and he would throw it out of gearinto neutral flying down the mountain I would be in a dead sleep and wake up screaming to the top of my lungs after 3 months I left him and went on my own.

I am definitely not a steering wheel holder can do mechanic work very good on reefer units and drive very well no accidents very good in Winter driving and miss it very much back every now and then as I am now 60 years old.

I guess I should end because I have too many stories lol God bless you all. 20+ years solo
