  1. Get and Share Great Money Saving Tips for Truck Drivers

    Every professional truck driver has a story about saving money or spending too much money in trucking. While we share our own successes and bone-headed mistakes on our website to help you, our site isn't just about us. Our goal is for it to become a clearinghouse of how truckers around the world save money. Perhaps you've mastered something we haven't or you have knowledge about something we don't.

    We invite you to share
    • your review of a product or service marketed and sold to truck drivers,
    • your experience regarding a truck part you've used, 
    • your experience at a truck stop or
    • your personal experience (your story) in dealing with money on the road as a trucker.

    So, what's your truck driver money saving tip?

  2. Google Reader's Change

    For quite a number of months, we have published in our email newsletters all of the bloglets we have posted through our website since our last email newsletter -- in reverse order of publication.

    Unfortunately (or fortunately, however you look at it), Google made a change to Google Reader that no longer makes that possible. Yes, users can still export starred entries, but Vicki found after days of trying to format the exported file as we need it that the Reader JSON file had reordered the entries!

    Until further notice, we will not be publishing bloglets from other sources in our newsletter.

    There are two good things about this, though:
    • you get a much shorter email newsletter to read and
    • the most recent 49 entries we've made to our blog are online. You can even subscribe to read our XML news feed in your favorite news feed reader.

  3. Word-Of-Mouth Helps All Professional Drivers. Please Spread the Word.

    If you find value in our website, social networking outlets or this email newsletter, please spread the word in whatever way is most convenient for you. We constantly seek to over-deliver value to help professional truck drivers worldwide save money. So we suggest that you Thanks.
