More Than Halfway To A World Record

The world record for the most female CDL holders in one place is 416; and it's held by The Netherlands. The Netherlands? Can't they be happy with all their tulips, windmills and wooden shoes, do they have to get in on the women truck drivers too??

Although we didn't break the world record, we did set the record for North America; this weekend, 275 of us girls came together to celebrate at the Mid-America Trucking Show in Louisville, KY. Check us out! If you click on the picture to make it bigger, you'll be able to see me - I'm on the right hand side of the picture, directly behind the woman in the pink cowboy hat holding the Canadian flag. This is not the "official" group picture, Eddie took this one for my blog.

Among the women in the group, there were sixty one-million milers, twenty-eight two million milers and fourteen three million milers. THREE MILLION miles. Fourteen of those women drove three million miles EACH. Truly amazing.
But you know what the best part of the day was, completely unrelated to the Women in Trucking event or the group photo?

As I was leaving the event, a man I saw earlier in the room said something to me as I approached him. I didn't hear what he said, so I moved a little closer and said, "Excuse me?"

And then in a bolder, louder voice he said, "You are HOT."

Who really gives a shit about a world record after that kind of compliment??
