John read TD27: Hauling Hazardous Materials and just wanted to pay me a compliment on my writing skills. Now my head is really big.
Matt MacKellar a.k.a. @mountain Matt got caught in the I-70 safety blitz and passed his inspection with flying colors. Nice going, Matt!
DJ wrote in to tell me he’s been listening since he was 16 years old, when he started with TD123: Advice For New Truckers. He’s 22 now and on his way to becoming a trucker. Cool!
