Adventure Challenge – Day 23: Driving a Giant Van

My current contract is with Ford Transit. Ford is getting rid of their E-series vans and replacing them with the Transits. Today, I was told that I would be driving these gigantic vans around some pretty major cities. I know that might not seem like a big deal to many, but it is a big deal to me.

I grew up in a town of 1800 residents. We had no stop lights. It took me well into my twenties before I felt comfortable even driving in Kansas City. Now, add a very large van that is taller than 9′ tall and 14′ long and I have a real adventure on my hands. I drove it around today and besides the turning radius (which I just couldn’t get the handle on) it drove really well. Now to figure out how to drive it in cities I don’t know…with other cars on the road.

I am from Kansas and I have traveled all over the world. I am an artist, and I have a business brain. I love skirts and tennis shoes. I like to get dirty and ride motorcycles. I am sensitive and I can be mean. I love nature, and believe in protecting it. I love to laugh, and feel better after a good cry. I can be stubborn and impatient. I am constantly growing. I am open and free. I look to be inspired and love to inspire. I play guitar and secretly want to play drums. I have a puppy that brings me great joy. I love hugs, cuddling, holding hands...and wrestling. I love the mountains and the beach. I have to make a pilgrimage to the ocean at least twice a year to balance myself. I believe in balance in all things. Traveling is a passion, and meeting interesting people from all over the world is the perk! I have small town values, and big city dreams. I love beer, hate wine. I believe that what you put out comes back. I believe and live by the belief of treating others like you want to be treated. I enjoy stimulating conversation, and a good sense of humor. Caffeine is my drug of choice, and coffee over chess or good conversation is my luxury. I am strong but sometimes feel small. I strive to be my authentic me.
