Personalized Log Books
I work in purchasing for a large trucking company. We use personalized log books to assure our information is always correct. We have multiple locations and use certain log books for each address. Personalizing each log book model with the address needed helps keep things more organized. One of the only problems I have encountered is typing errors. We once received a shipment of 2500 log books that had our company name spelled wrong. Personalized log books take a few weeks to print and ship. Having to return them and have them reprinted doubled the amount of time it took for this one order.
 
My Qualcomm MCP50 Experience

I started my own trucking company about 15 years ago. It started as just a small fleet of 10 trucks. We hired mostly family and a few close buddies of mine in the beginning. Now my company has grown to a fleet of 150 trucks. We are successful but I new with all the modern technology there had to be a way to take it to the next level.

Luckily I found my answer on this site. I’ve been a regular here for years. During my latest visit I found they offer the Qualcomm MCP50. I've heard a lot of good things about Qualcomm over the years. Like...

 
Wireless Winter Driving

I was always one of those drivers that didn’t understand the big deal about talking on a cell phone and driving. One hand driving is one hand driving; Bluetooth Headset or cell phone made no difference. My whole outlook changed when I lost control of my car on a snowy road while talking on my cell phone to my sister. I was heading to my mother’s house for a holiday get together while it was snowing. I didn’t think much of the storm. When you live in Vermont you drive in the snow during the winter. It wasn’t white out conditions or freezing rain; nothing extreme like that. It was simply snowing and the roads were covered. I wasn’t speeding or passing slower vehicles. I stayed in my lane, had my headlights on even though it was noon, and followed the car in front of me at a safe distance. My sister had called to see if I was on the road yet and to let me know the roads were starting to get slick. I told her I was on my way, the roads weren’t too bad and her big brother could deal with a little snow. The next couple minutes changed my life.

 
Wiper Blades For Less
There are a lot of things on a vehicle that you don’t think of replacing until it’s too late. It seems everyone has one thing or another that always gets them. For some it may be tires, others may be light bulbs, but for me it is wiper blades. It never fails. One day it will rain and the vehicle in front of me will kick up the dirty water off the road. I turn on my windshield wipers to clear my view and I get streaks. Most times the wipers make the window worse than it would’ve been had I just left the muddy water on there.
 
Rinse Free Photography
I have always loved to travel. Growing up my family would go RVing most summers. It was the best. Any time I had a chance to be out experiencing the world I was all for it. I would take millions of pictures so I could look back on them when winter took over. As soon as I graduated high school I got a trucking job driving coast to coast. I literally lived in my truck. I was referred to this site shortly after getting hired to be able to get 12 volt appliances to make my life a little easier. I got to live life on the road but was lucky enough to still have showers, a bed, and food readily available whenever I needed.
