Tonight we will be finishing up with trip planning. Seth Jackson is coming on to give everyone some tips on trip planning as a solo driver. We'll also talk about some useful apps you can use to plan where you want to park. Trucker's path is a great app that tells you where all the good truck parking areas are and how much parking is available. It requires participation to work well so if you are going to use it, make sure you contribute. TA/Petro app tells you the parking situation at all those truck stops. It is the only truck stop app that tracks how many parking spaces are available. There is also the MyPilot app and the Loves app. The main topic tonight is the fun side of trucking. There are a lot of perks and opportunities for fun when you are driving a truck around the country. Our target audience is brand new drivers in the industry. We also hope to be able to reach people who are considering truck driving as a career. This part of the show is for them. Becky will talk about riding roller coasters at Magic Mountain. Russ will be sharing a story. Melissa will be sharing a story, and Rick will be talking about all the great things that happened to him during his first year. You can find our group on Facebook at Trucking101 on Audioroad. The quote that we think sums up our entire mission is from Larry Winget- "Love what you do enough to become excellent at it; otherwise you don't"
