I’m gracious and humbly thankful God has given me 32 years in trucking and 51 years in life! I haul baby moos and general freight to all 48 states and Canada.
Why me? Because I like pretty trucks, memory filled ones — and it’s a rush to show they have personalities, too!

    I guess I didn’t realize I should explain alil about myself when this began. But I’ll try. With me there’s a lot to say but safer to say very little. Lol I’m a fun loving laughing comical person who loves my family as well as extended family. One that many know me as you never know what to expect next. I may not have the outter Beauty as those half my age But I wouldn’t trade my 51 years of laugh lines and giggle marks that each of you have given me with inner beauty for love nor money!! The many years of change in trucks and trucking, the raising of two Gorgeous daughters now with children, three times the safe miles, participation in many areas are who I am. Being sentimental to why I’m here gives me more reason than outter BEAUTY to make it why I’m here!! See I’m not alone… there are many of us ole gals who’ve paved the way with committment with a love that each deserve the beauty they each bring. I’d like to Thank You All…I’ve traveled roads no longer allowed and sat with down home people that I’ve kept that beauty within. I’ve kept my 18th Birthday Present from my daddy close by, my 1979 Orange Needle Nose DIAMOND REO beside my garage because that’s what the REAL BEAUTY in Trucking IS. I’ve accomplished many Firsts milestones and those only overflow my heart. My Trucker Buddy’s smiles from Magnet Schools to Special Education classes bring beauty that there is no contest winner of. Each accomplishment along with each of you makes me …A WINNER!!!! And living life to its fullest, giving My ALL makes me a winner INSIDE …the Outter is just my vessel…. I’m me, I’m Ingrid better known as HALF PINT ….and thank you!!!

    Yes, Ingrid, so right. We may be the older girls that paved the way but we salute all women that are out on the road today and those that went before us. We share in all of their success stories and their accomplishments and joys.

  • Gerald Sullivan

    She should win, a beauty with the road miles behind Her.

    I think you are a blessing to the profession. I am 52 and have been in, around under and thru trucks all my life. My mother taught me to drive when I was a sophomore in High School and got the passion from my Father. I no longer drive, but I do help keep a trucking company in Texas on their toes. I have hauled a lot of things from cows to produce, propane to flatbed. I still love it but now I stay close to home because of animals and there just isn’t a whole lot of companies around here that are worth working for. Some still don’t believe that Women can do just as good and a whole lot better than some of the drivers they have out there now. I do hope you win you are an inspiration.
