A Thank You & Giveaway

***Update @ 8:36 am 12/12/12 *** A winner has been chosen! Robert Owens you were the lucky winner!


Because it’s my birthday, because we are digging ourselves out after a blizzard, and because you all make me smile SO much not to mention make me count my blessings, I’m giving away a framed “Hood Shot”.

I love this Hood Shot– It’s one of my favorite (out of a zillion) so I’m giving away a framed 16×20 print to one of my readers.

All you need to do is leave a comment here on what your plans are for the holidays! And, if your shy all you need to do is say ‘Hi’ and you’ll be entered to win. I will draw on Wednesday morning and have the print shipped directly to you.

Good luck!!

Bethany About Bethany

I am a prisoner of the highway, farmer and lover of Mother Nature, the moon and stars, my long and low, flat-top Peterbilt, chickens, cats, dogs, horses, cooking, photography, tattoos, tea pots and vintage barnifacts…among other things. I’m also a very, happily married, third-generation truck driver. My career choice is both demanding and rewarding, just like most things in life that are truly good.


  1. im going to get a tattoo for my xmas present one girl trucking tattoo 😀

  2. Just go ahead and mail me the picture. I’ll take good care of it, I promise! Lol! Happy birthday!

  3. Makes me want to get back behind the wheel of my Old Pete.

    Hope you and hubs have a great Christmas and we wish you guys a great new year

  5. Good Morning,Bethany
    I’m the one that said, eventually someone will offer you a TV show all your own. Now look, people are getting One Girl Trucking tattoos. Your receipes are wonderful as are your photos and videos of home life. I’m tellin ya, you got something big here and someone is going to notice it.
    Just me and the kitty kids for the Holidays.
    Merry Christmas and a Happy safe New Year for you and yours.

  6. Happy Birthday Bethany. See, I did remember:). Hope you have a great day today. We finally got some more snow up here this weekend too. Funny to see Alaskans begging for snow. Anyway, have a big cup of cocoa and kick your feet up a bit today. WLBS

  7. Howdy.

    The plan for Christmas is to keep it simple, see Les Mis, eat homemade fudge, and watch Elf with the kids on Christmas Eve.

    Happy, happy; merry merry!

  9. I’m spending Christmas day with a big group of friends, then my boyfriend and I are going up to a little coastal town in Northern California (a couple hours drive from where we live) for a little getaway during the week between Christmas and New Years. I can’t wait!

  10. Morning Bethany!! Happy Birthday, Girl!! And if your out playing in all that snow, dress warm!! What are my plans for the holidays . . . honest, right now, I really don’t have any.. And there really isn’t anything here in the motel room that says it Christmas. Friday, last week, I had to go to Walgreens and I found a couple of small Christmas ornments, one is of a Christmas tree light, and the other is of Snoopy (wearing a Santa hat) an hugging Woodstock while sitting on top of his dog house. That’s it. I’m hoping I’ll be able to get a ride to go to church Christmas Eve, or the Sunday before Christmas. That’s about it from this neck of the woods. Have a good day, an go in an spend some time with your girl’s, Rufus, an Dolly!! 😉

  11. Cool. No plans as of yet!

  12. Karl Menser says:

    For years, the holidays have been just like any other day. Nothing special, just a time to get through, and we wil get through them. I wish I could get back behind the wheel and truck!

  13. Happy Birthday, Bethany! I’ll be spending my Christmas with family, which means loads of nieces and nephews, lots of noise, and tons of food, plus the Christmas story, then a yankee swap gift exchange. Pre-Christmas has been and will be, caroling, fellowship Christmas party, and lots of scrambling to pull things together.

    Hope you and yours have a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

      I feel so very fortunate that my passion and love for my truck & trucking all these yrs has been a successful ride. I am a very lucky girl in every aspect of my life, and have worked, and do work hard at it every day. I plan to have a rockin’ Christmas with my husband. One more week of work then 2 weeks off, then lots of garage time and probably drinks everyday after we are done!! Christmas vacation! xxxxxxoo!

  30. I’m taking a week vacation starting Christmas Eve. Nothing but relaxing with the family is planned.

  31. Thanks for all the great shots! My honey and I both look at them and share time talking about your trips! I hope one of these days to see you drive into our driveway! Blessings!

  32. We are just gonna be at home and spend time with our family. My husband will be coming home from about a month out on the road, so it will be all family time!
