Drivers unite
Don't worry Bandit, I am just going to sit back and watch, I have seen no trucks here this morning. For Indiana this is strange, maybe they are finally getting the picture, or they are out of fuel and money

Since today is the day, any reports on what the roads are looking like? Are the results better or worse than last month?

I have moved since the last shutdown, and no longer anywhere near an interstate to check it out.

Looks like a normal day to me. Wife and I just went an ate lunch, and there were as many trucks as normal out on the road.

Really haven't heard nearly as much about this shutdown as the one back in April.

Did anyone else shutdown today? why are trucks still moving with all the b/s going on with the fuel? Is everyone just gonna run till they go out of business?

The core group of us and several others went out to a pond , we fished and BBQ a great day.
I hope you and your "Core Group" had a nice time, because from what I saw, damn near everyone else was working and trucking. Maybe the "Core Group" should have spent a little more time getting the word out to the Truckers and the Citizens. There has been post after post saying that most of the drivers hadn't even heard about a Shutdown/Strike on May 5th. There were a few of us here at the TruckersForum that worked damn hard trying to get the word out to as many as we could. I guess, tonight, we all look pretty damn stupid. This is by far, the saddest excuse I've ever seen for a National Truckers & Citizens Shutdown/Strike. :sad::headscratch2::dunno::thud:

Sorry, I guess if I don't have anything good or constructive to say, I shouldn't say anything, but I couldn't help myself. :pissed: After telling everyone I've come in contact with for the past 2 wks that this was really going to be the biggest Shutdown ever, and was going to be the beginning of the taking back of America by the people....HA,HA,HA, :blah:

:sad:Does anyone know when we're supposed to shut down whatever it is that we're supposed to shut down?
:dunno:I'm a little confused about all of this????

To answer your questions wyatt, Yes I'm still sitting and will continue... dunno why they are still rolling, I guess they like paying 4.00 plus for fuel...and yep, they will not wake up to whats in store for them until its way too late,after all they are "educated"?:runningaround:
