    Hey Guys, thanks to all professionals truck drivers out there tonight beating their brains out to make their living and provide for the needs of our Country! After traveling for decades on the open roads and pipelineing in near every state , I can say without reservations that I probably would never been able to without the helpful directions from truckers and the knowledge of the correct use of my ham converted CB radio ! Hats off the you Guys ! Happy Trails! God bless you !

            99% of truckers are excellent drivers and always 3 steps ahead of the action around them. A thankless job. Thanks!!

                  I spent almost 3 decades riding around in Kenworths, a thankless career it is. But I wouldn't have it any other way. 3.75 million miles in my career, this country was my neighborhood

                      There are so many good truckers I’ve met running a heavy wrecker years ago! The bad ones are a small majority that give the pros a bad name and it’s not fair! Heavy haulers get a tip of the schlafly ball cap because I know the feeling of being way too heavy and not being able to make a turn and not enough brakes, many wrecker operators won’t run air to the t/t because of time, when you have two extra axles back there with brakes why not?

                            Just love it when they blow by me and then crowd in front of me blowing sand and gravel all over my car... Need to have a federal mandate of 60 MPH tops for any semi truck...

                              Ah, you might want to catch a ride in a rig sometime. You'll change your tune pretty quick. As for your 60MPH idea that's about as dangerous as it gets, most of us have attempted to pass cars going 10-15MPH under the speedlimit and then the car driver wakes up and decides to put his leg in it, if your truck is governed you end up being beside the DB in the left lane and you can't get enough speed to get by the idiot, then traffic gets backed up. Go for a ride sometime. Then maybe you won't pull in so close after passing a truck that he can't see the roof of your car over his hood.

                                  Here's to your "federal mandate".
                                  I don't "crowd" anyone. It's usually the 4 wheelers that are in my way.
                                  Need to have a "federal mandate" against IDIOTS on the road.

                                      As I told before Paul , they can always count the accidents we are in but they will never be able to count how many times we save some dumbass 4 wheeler from dying.
