Trucking Answers | 5 things that have improved trucking over the last 34 years | A Reason we are not on Mars | #117

In a cross-country episode I discuss 5 things that I think have made trucking either better or easier in the last 34 years.  I use 34 years because that is how long I have been trucking.  Trucking is a great career, it still pays the bills and keeps the lights on here at Trucking Answers.  In a future episode I will discuss the 5 things that have hurt trucking in the last 34 years.  Also, ripped from today’s headlines is yet another reason we don’t live on Mars.  Current weather conditions on Mars provided by NASA.

In a longish episode I discuss a conversation I had with a reporter and how you can help.  The United Federation of Commercial Drivers is off the ground and rolling.  We are in the news in Business Insider and there is more news coming!  There is an anti-rollover fifth wheel but I am nervous about it.  OSHA withdraws the vaccine mandate and I agree.  That is over for now.  Diesel is the highest in 5 years and I investigate why.  Mid America Truck Show is around the corner, be there!  Cadillac makes the Escalade V that no one asked for.  Ford Maverick takes no more orders.  A Cruise Ship gets arrested.  What is the worst muscle car ever of all time?  A reason we are not on Mars.

In a Tony Award production we discuss why trucking isn’t considered a trade.  The Tennessee Governor wants drivers to drive longer hours.  Is that good?  A truck crashes the Autozone and I mean all the way through.  Maverick gives a $100 bill on holidays.  Big deal.  Jeep has a recall, again.  The Toyota Murai is up and hard to find fueling.  The Ford Ranger gets a redo.  A reason we are not on Mars that includes me saying “Buttocks” numerous times.

In this side-splitting episode I discuss the ATA and Chris Spear making up numbers to justify his existence.  Papa Joe may call out the national guard, or will he?  I am back from Paternity leave and ready to go.  Many companies are putting out ads that they will not have a vax mandate so don’t worry if yours does.  United Road has a guarantee but I don’t like it and I say why.  Universal Intermodal fired people for unionizing and they got slapped for it as they should.  The Ford Maverick gets 42 mpg city and that is incredible. Ford makes a reliable hybrid so get one if you want.  Tesla Model X comes with a yoke steering wheel and push button turn signals.  Ugh.  Stop making simple things complicated.  In California we find another reason we are not on Mars.

The Trucking Answers Podcast rolls along today by talking about the strike at Volvo and what is going to happen.  Did you know you are only worth what you can be replaced with?  Ford Bronco vs Ford Maverick.  Companies:  If you watch your drivers 24 hrs a day, including taking pictures of them from the inky shadows, expect them to quit and not recommend the place to other people.  Tesla is going to allow other car makers to use its charging network and I think that is a terrible idea.  Zonar is up as well as another article I read.  Let me know what you like and what you don’t like!
