Photo From the Road (Alabama)

When I travel travel through Alabama on I-22 and need a place to stop for the night or just get something to eat I take exit 30 to Cafe 30. Great food with reasonable prices and a friendly staff! While most of the truck parking lot is rock and gravel, it's also large enough to provide plenty of parking. Located at I-22 Exit 30 or 7016 State Highway 129 Winfield, Alabama

How About A Radio Check?

Instead of wasting time asking for a radio check that may or may not be answered try this instead. Ask a question like, “where’s the next tuck stop going south” or “are there any good restaurants near the split”. One thing you can be sure about truck drivers is their eagerness to show off their “highway knowledge”. So if your radio is good working condition you should find out in no time.

Many Thanks To Nucor Yamato Steel

Truck Driver Appreciation Week is a time to remind everyone of the sacrifices and skills of professional truck drivers who keep America moving. For 2016 it was th week of September 11-17 and I wanted to send out a big thank you to Nucor-Yamato Steel in Armorel, Arkansas for this really nice cooling towel. Nucor-Yamato Steel Company was formed in 1987 as a joint venture between Nucor and Yamato Kogyo with the goal of operating a steel mini-mill to manufacture wide-flange beams in Blytheville, Arkansas. Today, Nucor-Yamato Steel Company has the capacity to produce over 2.5 million tons per year of not only wide-flange beams, but also H-piling, sheet piling, standard I-beams, channels and various other structural shapes.

Old School Waitress

Very few servers know the correct way to take care of a customer. But the ones that do know just what to say and how to be engaging without being a pest. Above all a good server will always make sure your beverage is full and your order is correct. This nice lady at the TA in Marianna, Florida is a classic example of how it's done right.
