A little information from their website:

We are planning a convoy in April to the State capital. Please keep checking back for updates! We want to make our voices heard and present a professional, unified, convoy of truck owners and drivers. Congressman Brad Ellsworth is working with us to get Congress on the bandwagon. He has met with the Small Business Administration and the Transportation Secretary to ask for immediate hearings about soaring fuel and truck prices, low rates and the adverse affect on safety. We have asked the Congressman to ride with us in April and he is currently looking into that possibility. The convoy is planned for the 18th. We plan on starting in Cloverdale and driving to downtown Indy. We will have the Indiana State Police helping us to keep this as orderly as possible.

We do not want any negative or unprofessional actions. That would only further degrade our image to the public. Please email if you want to join our convoy and I will keep you updated on any new developments. Talk to everyone you can. Let’s send 1,000 trucks to the circle!!!

Drivers unite
Just talked to Carl and Darrell, it'll start at 9:00am at the Cloverdale Travel Plaza at Route 231 and I-70. The route will go to I-465 north of the city. Permits are being worked on and they are working with the ISP to make sure it stays peaceful and respectable. Obama will be in Indy that day so we are hoping that we'll get the same treatment from him as the PA guys did from Hillary. Anyway, we'll be getting more details as they get them and I'll post them here for anyone interested. I can't stress enough how badly we need drivers to join us in this.

Um, your location says PA..... you are in Indiana? Whereabouts?

i'm talking the route they will be running. most likely it will be I-70 from indy and in that case it runs right thru my back yard. but it is a toll road thru Pa. so i wonder if they will swing down to catch I-68 thru west virginia.
