I was first introduced to Uber when I went to Chicago with a friend, they were doing all the booking, I just jumped in for the ride. I didn’t exactly have the greatest first impressions of the service. Our first car was similar to a 1.1l European car where the back seat isn’t really big enough for 2 children, let alone 3 grown adults. The 2nd driver was telling us his life story and all the girls he’s got lined up and the 3rd was missing 3 out of 6 wheel bolts on the rear tyre…I’m surprised it didn’t fly off.
Now here’s something I may not have mentioned on my blog before. I am a girl, I’m 5ft4 inches tall AND I hold a UK class 2 truck license. Think the size of a bin lorry (garbage truck), fire engine, a coach with no passengers, anything that’s rigid, up to 4 axels. I may not have taken up truck driving, but I was a delivery driver for 3 years. I was on the road, 6 days a week, averaging around 10 hours a day during the week. I picked up things that made my life on the road easier and now I’m going to share some of my best road trip tips with you!
