The mere mortals who attend the Mid-America Trucking Show are getting ready for the official second day of the show.
Having been on the ground since late Tuesday night, lugging briefcases and laptops to press conference after press conference, we're on day three. It's a lot like the second half of a championship game.
A huddle over breakfast -- Sandi assigned the game strategy for the day, and the Land Line Magazine team headed out.
Sandi and Diesel Dave Sweetman are off to Churchill Downs to spend some quality time with the Goodyear Highway Heroes. (Wait until you read their stories later on this. Amazing men, all of them.)
Suzanne "Red the Happy Hampster" Stempinski and I are off to the back lot checking out the killer trucks, later meeting and greeting with the Arrow Truck Sales Back on the Road winner and Aaron Tippin.
Bill Hudgins is trolling the show soaking up MATS in all of its glory to bring you more of his clever blogs.
We will all be hugging and chatting with OOIDA members and friends along the way.
Got the walking shoes on. Red Bull in hand.
Yup. It's game day.
