Stephanie Klang’s journey started ordinarily enough: with a man and his truck. When Klang was 21 years old, she fell in love with a long-haul truck driver. They married in 1979, and she developed a lifelong romance with trucking. “I was young and missing him,” Klang said. “I wanted to be with him all the time.” She began accompanying her husband on trips from their northeast Colorado town to haul grain through the Midwest for Allen Mitchek Feed & Grain.
