Heading On Down The Highway Until Next Year

Well, the Mid-America Trucking Show is over.  Another year, another set of sore feet.

I only attended one of the three days this year, Ed went every day.  The first day I had to shop, the second day I went to the show with Ed, and the third day I spent with Marlaina hanging out, having coffee, doing lunch.  Perfect balance.

The show is always the same - same vendors, same layout, same insane crowds - but on occasion, you do find something new.  This year Ed and I talked to the President & CEO of eNow Energy Solutions, a company that makes flexible solar panels for commercial vehicles.  They were very cool and Ed said he'd definitely consider putting them on the top of the truck.  They were affordable and provide a considerable savings over the course of use.  Certainly a worthy return on investment.  We also stopped at the Go Capital booth to talk to their Marketing Director, who happens to be the granddaughter of one of my mother's WOW friends.

Ed also bought us a brand new steering wheel, which is beautiful and made in Italy, but I think will take me some time to get used to.

The best part of the show was hanging out with our friends and hitting several interesting and delicious local dining spots.

More to come!
