Sierra Sugar is a pen name, my pen name to be exact. It has become so much more than merely a moniker. But I'll leave you to discover all that for yourself; after all, that's why you're here, right?
I, along with my fiance' Allen, travel the country in a "big truck". He's the professional driver, I'm along for the journey. Our truck is our home. Talk about tiny living! We live in a whole 120" of space. This is where we work, ride, cook, eat, sleep, dream, plan, and view the world. Oh yes, and I have the best office view! It's always right outside our windshield. Of course I have many hobbies to keep me busy during the long driving days. These include photography, painting (watercolors), and Zentangle art. My mind is filled with random obscure trivia and pop culture tidbits. I love history and all things geeky. I mention I love gadgets? And if is cute and quirky, or remotely kitty related I probably want it.
So, here is where I let my hair down. Right here for all the world to see. Please overlook the bad hair days and bed head! Here you can read and see all about our travels and daily lives, take a peek at our pampered puppies, learn how and what we cook, and get an inside look at many different products and companies.
Welcome to my life.... The Sweet Life of Sierra Sugar.
Grumpy is a 38 year veteran of the road. He started his driving career on a ranch where he learned to drive on a 1969 Long-Nose Pete with twin sticks. From there he joined the military, where he drove various DoD trucks and equipment. After his time in the military, Grumpy returned to civilian life as a long-haul truck driver. He's seen a lot, both the good and the bad. Oh the stories can tell, and does, in his own cantankerous way. Grumpy shares his experiences and out-spoken opinions, in hopes to bring trucking back to its once great status, and he needs your help.
