Dec. 3, 2012 - PRLog -- It started out so innocently. I was working for a Las Vegas construction company in the accounting department. My husband, Harry, was driving one of the company’s delivery trucks that took supplies to job sites around the city. One weekend he had an out-of-town run and I got permission to go along for the ride. By the time we were at the destination, I knew I wanted to drive a big rig myself.

Truck driving school lasted about four weeks. There were 20 students in the class and only two women, a ratio that reflects the entire industry. I was learning a new skill at age 54, and so very different from the quiet and predictable desk jobs I had done in the past.

Being a woman in a man’s world can be challenging, is rarely boring, and is surprisingly comfortable. I have been treated with respect by my fellow drivers and accepted without hesitation or condescension. There are no barriers.

If a half-dozen years ago, someone had told me I’d be doing this job today, I would have laughed them off. Ten years ago, I would have assumed them certifiably insane.  Yet, here I am: A Long Way From Home.

About the Author: C L Miller was raised in southern California and always had a love of the road. “When I was a few months shy of my 15th birthday I met a boy. Harry had just turned 13, so I dismissed him as boyfriend material. What I couldn’t do was ignore his friendship. We attended different high schools, but spent many weekend and holiday hours together. As we approached graduation, we planned the summer road trip we’d take when he graduated. As often happens, Life interferred. We went our separate ways and lost contact. Thirty-one years after my high school graduation, my second marriage was over. I had returned to college to get a degree. Then all that changed in a heartbeat. Literally. A friend had told me about a reunion website and I found Harry. It was as if it had been 30 minutes instead of 30 years. Six weeks later, I was moving into a small apartment in Las Vegas to be near him, and we soon got married in a chapel there.” When they finally set out on that long-delayed road trip, she started writing letters to a friend about their adventures, which became the basis for these books.
