LOL man I picked up the phone seriously! I called Dennis today as well. Things look very sunny on his side with the cops helping out, city and county officials! I applaud them for stepping up and helping. He told me the cop was stopped by the office I believe and said that if they go out of his jurisdiction the next one will help them out!!! But call him tomorrow and get the whole story of what all is going on. He printed the article from Landline mag out too.
Paint it on the back of your shirt if that's what it takes!
It appears that the word is not getting out if there are trucker on the road that have not heard of the strike ...... SO ...Like I said "Get it in gear" The media is not going to advertize the strike for you. TN.Truckers Wife has been working her heart out for you, and is right on the button. Get on your CBs. Put large signs on your tucks. Us you fingers and write it in the dirt on the backs of you trucks. Print this the sign below and put it on the back of your trucks and cars. Kinko's can print this sign as big as you want it. Hang this sign from overpasses on the freeways while the freeway are still free!!!! Many are going to Toll roads.
"TRUCKER'S STRIKING OVER FUEL PRICES" MAY 5TH JOIN US AMERICA!
I printed this one up on my printer and put it in the side and back windows of Bronco, and people a honking with thombs up.
Get a spray can of $4.00 cheap paint and spray it on the side of your trucks. Put a sign on your back while your in a truck stop. Copy good ideas from this forum and put them on other forums. Use all the truckers forums on the net. Put signs in your yard while your on the road or not. Call the TV & Radio stations. There are hundreds of thousands of trucker on the road right now .... Stay on that CB, become a pain in the ass, but get that message out. "TRUCKERS ARE STRIKING ON MAY 5TH, JOIN US, AND PASS THE WORD" Call you trucker friends while your home. Think, get creative.
Get you wife's and children to stand on street corners with signs, and them call the TV stations .... TV new media love news stories they can video. Make your own videos and put them on YOUTUBE
I hate to inform you guys but TN.Truckers Wife isn't the only one working her butt off on this shut down. I've been at it for a WHILE. On the phone constantly with JB and talkin to his brother about the site. There are a lot of others doing things too Greyfoxx and I mean A LOT. Like radio interviews, newspaper interviews and news statioons. So the word it getting out. But think about it what media wants to pick it up and have their bottled water and toilet paper stopped??
Also there's not an excuse why anyone hasn't heard about it with the internet if they know how to use google and yahoo to search.
Type in TRUCKER STRIKE you will find me on myspace. I am linked to The American Driver
This site comes up well and I support it along with The American Driver with a passion and will CONTINUE to do so.
I mean where else can you find admins that aren't ripping your hind end for everything coming and going? Seriously.
Just for the record I didn't get offended by GreyFOxx's post about anything I appreciate what EVERYONE is doing and everyone else should as well. We've have all put a lot of blood, swear and tears in this. Thats what it's going to take blood, sweat and tears.
