VIDEO: Old school news segment follows lady trucker in a cabover


This video gives you a peek into the world of old school trucking as it follows a female truck driver on her driving day.

The video was produced for a news program decades ago and follows Joanna Wilson, a 29 year old independent truck driver with seven years of experience in the industry, as she delivers a load of washing machines to Newton, Kansas.

“Every day is different. I like the freedom. There’s no one breathing over my shoulder. They give me a load to Minneapolis and say take it to L.A. And if it’s in the middle of winter, it’s up to me to decide which route to take, to make the decisions, the challenge when the truck breaks down. Being confronted with problems all by myself out in the middle of the boonies, it’s up to me to come up with a solution,” Wilson says.
