Imagine the Holidays Without Truck Drivers

Post-apocalyptic survival stories are all the rage these days, but zombies or contagions are not the most likely thing to throw America into a state of chaos. Consider this: what would happen if every truck driver on earth disappeared? What if all US trice1 300x225 Imagine the Holidays Without Truck Driversucks were halted mid-route, and everything came to a standstill? A truck-pocalypse would be just as detrimental to life as we know it as a zombie attack, especially when it comes to the holidays.

Picture this: it’s mid-November, and you’re getting excited for another holiday season. You have a lot of grocery shopping to do to prepare big meals for your family driving into town. Of course, you also need to buy presents in time for Christmas!

Without truck drivers, the grocery store shelves start to run bare about 24 to 48 hours after the trucks stop running. Retail stores run out of your kids’ requested toys, so there’s no chance of putting anything under the tree this year.

As it turns out, your family gets stranded on their way to your house because everyone needed to fuel up for their holiday travels. With no trucks to restock the supply, many gas stations ran out of fuel in just a few hours after the truck-pocalypse began. That means there’s no gas left to get to the store or to visit family.

But it doesn’t matter anyway because there are no truck drivers to deliver any goods to your office. You are out of work and don’t get paid. You can’t even make a withdrawal from the bank because there are no trucks to facilitate transactions from central locations. That means you don’t have any money to purchase the things that would have made this a special holiday season.

Before long, garbage starts piling up on the streets because there’s no waste removal system. Police, fire and rescue service vehicles are out of fuel too, so there’s no one to call if you have an emergency.

Luckily, this thought experiment would never become reality. The economy is too dependent on truck drivers for the transportation industry to ever allow all trucks to just stop moving. And good thing too, because without truck drivers, it wouldn’t be much of a holiday season!

Making Holiday Memories

Enjoying family time during the holiday season when you’re gone for weeks at a time, as an over-the-road truck driver can be difficult. The fact is the economy never stops, not even on holidays and weekends. As a driver, you must be willing to take on these shutterstock 115747795 300x200 Making Holiday Memoriesresponsibilities. Here at Pegasus TransTech, we want to make the task easier with these tips for making holiday memories as a truck driver.

Enjoy Quality Home Time during the Holidays

Hopefully, you can enjoy some time off during the holidays. While you’re at home in person with your family, make the most of your time together. Do things you can’t do over video chat, such as playing catch with your grandkids or having a family movie night. Whatever you do, leave your work behind and give your family your full attention.

Stay Connected While Away

Even if you’re on the road during the holidays, you can still share special memories with your family, all thanks to technology. If you don’t already have a smartphone, tablet or laptop, now would be a great time to invest in one. That way, when the holidays arrive, you’ll have the gadget you need to video chat with your partner, kids and grandkids at home.

For example, you might arrange ahead of time with your spouse to video chat during Thanksgiving dinner, on Christmas morning when everyone gathers around the tree to open presents or when the clock strikes midnight on New Year’s Eve. Two-way video ensures you don’t miss a thing during the memorable holiday season.

Thank you, drivers, for your time and dedication, even on holidays. We wish you and your family a very happy holiday season.

Big, Burly, Tenderhearted Truck Drivers

Truck drivers do great things on a daily basis that most people never hear about. On the outside, many truckers may be big and burly, but any truck driver who listens toTeddy trucking industry changes 300x194 Big, Burly, Tenderhearted Truck DriversBear” by Red Sovine is obviously tenderhearted. Today, many programs are in place that cater to truckers who aren’t afraid to show their softer side.

Trucker Buddy

In 1992, a professional truck driver named Gary King sought permission from an elementary school in Wisconsin to become pen pals with students. A fourth grade teacher quickly got on board, and the correspondence began. As other drivers saw King composing his postcards and short letters – in which he answered the students’ questions and detailed the sights he saw – they wanted to get involved too.

That’s how Trucker Buddy formally began in 1993. Today, the program has over 2,500 driver-teacher matches and 60,000 student pen pals. Trucker Buddy enriches the lives of school children and drivers alike, establishing relationships that often stand the test of time.

God’s Connection Transition

A Waste Management truck driver named Arnold Harvey noticed families sleeping on the streets near a shelter in the suburbs of Washington, D.C. Instead of ignoring them, he looked into providing coats, blankets and food for these people. His efforts led to the founding of God’s Connection Transition, a nonprofit that provides donated food to 5,000 families per month.

Trucks for Change Network

Truck drivers and carriers across Canada can become members of the Trucks for Change Network, a nonprofit organization dedicated to making a positive difference in the communities it serves. The network makes it easy and cost-effective for carriers to help local charities. It posts service requests from charities online where members can offer to donate or request a rate for providing the services. The partnership fosters cost savings and convenience for charities, while giving trucking companies an avenue for making a difference in their community.

Operation Roger … Truckers Pet Transport

A rag-tag team of about 30 pet-loving truck drivers volunteers their cabs to transport rescued pets to their final destinations in an initiative called Operation Roger … Truckers Pet Transport. When the organization receives a request for a pet transport, they do everything possible to match the pet’s starting and ending destinations with a driver traveling along a similar route. Operation Roger is run purely by volunteer staff; the more drivers who join the project, the more successful it will become.

Big Iron Classic

The purpose of this “working class” truck show is to show off big rigs, review new trucking technology, enjoy the truck pull and collect toys for charity. The Big Iron Classic is held the first weekend after Labor Day and attracts thousands of truck drivers and truck lovers who also want to give to a good cause.

You know, those big, burly truck drivers have a soft spot in their hearts for those in need, and their generosity shows every day.
