SORT BY Relevancy
Truck drivers have been saying for years that, "We need more truck parking" but it seems that it took an article in the Wall Street Journal (WSJ) to get the much needed attention of the general public.
Join us with our special guest Dave Della Maggiore, a 20 year veteran driver as he shares his interview by WSJ journalist Betsy Morris from the report entitled: Too Many Trucks,Too Little Parking. Dave will also share his thoughts about the trip with WSJ photographers and his encounter with a tired trucker at a truck stop in Clines Corners, New Mexico.
Dave and fiancée, Robin, run their active Facebook group, Give Truckers Room, educating drivers of passenger vehicles how to drive safely around semi trucks.
Also joining us will be Nicholas Carretta, President and CEO of UltraShipTMS which specializes in transportation and technology solutions. UltraShipTMS quickly responded to the WSJ article and addressed the serious parking shortage in their own article, “Use YMS to Combat Truck Parking Crisis" which stated:
"Keeping drivers off of public streets, freeway ramps and vulnerable, remote parking places like abandoned lots is a laudable goal. It is also one that logistics as an industry is going to be forced to address."
Mr. Carretta will discuss the UltraYMS tool, allowing the logistics sector to take an active and responsible part in the truck parking shortage solution.
With the shortage of safe and secure parking for our nation's truck drivers back in the news, join us as we discuss the dangers drivers face every day because of the lack of safe truck parking availability.
Who is responsible for putting drivers at added risk? Where are the most difficult areas to find truck parking? How are regulations adding to the already dangerous parking situations? Who doesn't want to see more available truck parking?
Our guests include Hope Rivenburg of Jason's Law, Desiree Wood of Real Women in Trucking and our special guests, Ashley Boeglin and David Clark, wife and father-in-law of Michael Boeglin.
We will also review some startling results of the 2013 National Truck Parking Survey led by Hope and the detailed data analysis performed by Ms. Wood.

Kevin and the Tribe have been testing different activity trackers. He's testing out the Fitbit, syncing it to his scale, and checking in on his sleep routine. We talk about the pros and cons of the Fitbit.
We also talk about trying to choose the right tracking device for you. How it comes down to cost and the technology that you're currently comfortable using.
What's important to be tracking? What do you need to know about your body? What's the most accurate way to measure it? How often should you be measuring it? These are all the questions we try to answer on this episode.
We also hear what you're using to track your activity and health. Of course, we take your trucking questions on business, trucking, becoming an owner operator, fuel savings, net profit and other important stuff.
Today we're talking about willpower, and the most recent book that Kevin is reading. We talk about personal challenges, resolutions and having the willpower to meet your goals. Kevin shares his two main short-term goals, and the main lesson he has taken away from the book "Willpower Instinct" by Kelly McGonigal.
Kevin gives you some action steps from this book, and how to assess and understand your own strengths and weaknesses to positively influence your own life and the lives of others.
We talk about how important it is to continue learning, and and our new show called The Road Scholar where we'll be reviewing and discussing books. Of course, we take your calls and talk about how we can put the money you deserve back into your pocket!
Time to get motivated. Let's Truck!
Today Kevin got up super early, and had a bit different of a day. During his pre-show work, he started watching Larry Winget's new show on "Whatever it Takes Network". There's so much information here, for free!
We talk about the shift in information sharing, and how now (because of the internet) we have access to so much free information and resources. Sometimes it can be overwhelming, all of the things we could be learning, so we break it down and talk about Kevin's favourite courses, books and resources that he's used.
We need to keep learning, keep improving and make a plan to keep getting better! We're here to help, but you're the main person driving your success forward. You can do it. All you need to do is make the first steps.. even if it's the wrong one, at least you'll be learning what does and doesn't work.
