A shout-out to the truckers!

 

I'm relatively new to the site, and I just wanted to thank the truckers who've posted POIs. In addition to transporting the goods we all use everyday, you're also giving us some great tools to use with our GPS.

Welcome to the site beckdv.

Mrs. Nuvi and I live out in the country. We've got a big old Avocado tree (25 - 30 plus feet high), in our side yard. The darn thing produces "Hundreds" of them every season. mad We don't like Avocados, so "I Give'm Away By The Basketful..!!" We even have a Sheriff's Deputy smile that stops by on their tour of duty (during the harvesting season), that gets a bunch.

Y'all let me know and I'll e-mail you as many as you want. wink

Pres. Eisenhower gained an appreciation of the German Autobahn network as a necessary component of a national defense system while he was serving as Supreme Commander of the Allied forces in Europe during World War II. He recognized that the proposed system would also provide key ground transport routes for military supplies and troop deployments in case of an emergency or foreign invasion.

The Interstate Highway System was authorized by the Federal-Aid Highway Act of 1956 – popularly known as the National Interstate and Defense Highways Act of 1956 – on June 29.

That was how the Interstate system began.

And the taxes paid by truckers have kept it viable ever since.

don't forget . . . .

Don't forget trucks cause a lot of damage to the streets and highways which you did not mention. Yes, you do pay more in fuel taxes then automobiles, plus the Federal Heavy Use Tax, but not enough to repair all of the damage you cause. You keep trying to credit the interstate highway system to truckers. That's all I'm going to say about that. Drive Safe

Just wanted to set Bilson straight on one point

I'm not, as you suggest, a trucker, or in any way involved with the trucking industry. I simply expressed a little gratitude to the hard-working men and women who transport virtually every product you, I, and all of us use and tend to take for granted. Didn't think this would become a political football, but I guess that's the times we live in.
