We are onto the next month already in this crazy, challenging year. Hopefully, October brings some joy, good news, and good health to all! I don't know about you, but I'm ready for 2020 to be over!!! One of the biggest things that are helping me get through these tough times is our weekly post in our trucking Facebook group, RoadWarriors! This post asks truckers to share some AWESOME, POSITIVE NEWS that has happened to them or someone they know in the last week or so!!
Well, after TONS of comments, it goes to show that we are not the only ones craving some good news.
