Over the Road Truck Drivers face a variety of challenges in our daily lives. Challenges range from traffic, weather, tight schedules, and a myriad of regulations to name a few.  Yet one of the biggest challenges is the simple fact of living and living well.  Living Well to me is the concept of taking simple surroundings and making the most from them.  Whether it is maximizing storage space, entertainment solutions for small spaces and limited budgets, or health wellness and food.  Simply put it is all that makes life satisfying.

The trick to doing it on the road is doing it in living/work space that is smaller than many jail cells. Add to this many drivers also team up, resulting in 2 adults living in a small confined space for days, if not weeks or months at a time.

This blog will cover all things of the trucking life ranging from cooking on the truck, health and fitness, entertainment, electronics, and various other gadgets.  My goal is that the information you will find here will be helpful to not just commercial drivers, but to anyone who lives and works in small spaces, such as those in RV’s, dorm rooms, small apartments, offices, or any other small work or living environment.

Everything contained here has been test and proven effective for myself and other professional drivers.  If it works for the people you trust to bring you the food and other items you need in your daily life, it should work for you as well.  Welcome to Road Tested Living.

I have been driving in the trucking industry for 9 years working for a major over the road refrigerated carrier. In "previous lives," I have worked as a police dispatcher while in college for Geology and Sociology, spent time in restaurant kitchens, and spent 9 years in retail electronics. Of all my jobs, I enjoy probably enjoy driving the most, with cooking not far behind. During my time as a driver my weight went up and my health went down. In the last few years I have made the decision to start taking back my health. RoadTestedLiving.com chronicles my story, as well as that of other drivers. It will share tips and tricks that, if they work for professional drivers with limited time, space, and equipment, they should be able to work for anyone. It also allows me to share my passion for the trucking industry, and good food with others. Simply put, Road Tested Living is all about Learning to Live Well from Life's Lessons on the Road.
