He starts to realize what’s going on when a big rig turns to back into the driveway.

His daughter films his reaction and asks him, “What do you think about that?” His only response is “Well…I have no idea!” He turns to smile at the camera as he realizes it might be someone he knows.

Missy is just one of many female truck drivers in the country.

People have stereotypes of what a female truck driver should look like but Real Women In Trucking wants to let people know those female drivers ‘come in all shapes, sizes, ethnic groups, and ages.’

“Many women truckers are grandmothers who are no longer tied to the home.”Real Women In Trucking

“Despite the stereotype image of truck drivers, they are incredibly diverse but hidden from the public. There is a significant GLBTQ population of truck drivers , short drivers, tall drivers, Vegetarian Truckers, Cowboy Truckers, Christian Truckers, Pagan Truckers, and Hare Krishna Truckers, Politically Active Truckers, Computer Geek Truckers – Real Women In Trucking

Now watch this heartwarming video of Missy surprising her grandfather with her new wheels.
