Someone brought up trucking groups on Facebook so I thought I'd put a few of the good ones out there if anyone was interested. I'm a member of all these groups and can say they're a pretty good group of folks.

Trucker's Haven is probably the best. It's very similar to TT, no company bashing, be respectful to one another and keep it PG-13. You can post questions, recommendations on good places to stop, funny things you see or hear during the day, pictures from the Road, pretty much anything trucking related you can think of.

For cooking tips, check out Cooking on the Truck and Big Truck Cooking. For anyone who has been wanting to start saving money and eating better on the road, these two groups are definitely a great place to start. Get recipes, appliance tips and help, as well as diet advice.

For truckers with pets, join Trucking Fur babies. Or if you just want to see some pics of super cute pets.

I definitely DONT recommend Twisted Truckers or Truckers Wall of Shame as all they do is whine, moan, company bash and post pictures of people's mistakes. Not good company to keep.

YTTA associates seem to really want to help people out and they screen all post before posting.

I followed YTTA for awhile, but it's so many lease ops bragging about all the money they make that I just quit. The Truck Driver Guy is another one I quit following because it was way too much politics for my taste.

There's also a large community of truckers from around the world on Twitter. I've made some very, very good friends there and even spent holidays with a few.

What he said, mostly follow for the occasional funny pic.

As a Swifty, if you can't grow a thick skin and laugh things will be hard on the internet. *Not to be confused with real life. Most Super Truckers on the net are wannabes passing on rumors/junk or washout who make 3x as much running a pallet jack at Wal-Mart.

I admit, I still follow Twisted Truckers. More as a reminder of what NOT to be and the kind of people I don't want to be around.

I don't read the comments anymore after a very large jacka$$ made the comment that women should never be allowed to drive trucks. Let's just say my response to him was rather scathing.

Dm:

Dispatcher, Fleet Manager, Driver Manager

The primary person a driver communicates with at his/her company. A dispatcher can play many roles, depending on the company's structure. Dispatchers may assign freight, file requests for home time, relay messages between the driver and management, inform customer service of any delays, change appointment times, and report information to the load planners.

I simply pointed him in the direction of the proven statistics that show that women are actually safer drivers. And less than politely told him where he could stuff his 1950s mentality opinions.... I never said I was ALWAYS a lady!
