Today (4-12-2019) was supposed to be the “epic nationwide truckers shutdown” staged by BS matters. Did you notice anything different today? Just wondering if Todd or Kip were on any news channels that I may have overlooked.

I saw absolutely no change in truck traffic, and heard zero chatter on the cb about it.

They're a joke...

Yep saw nothing, left Bath Ny this morning and just pulled into Richfield yard about an hour ago. Unless BS puts out those orange barrels I saw no impact.

I guess Black Smoke doesn't matter. Not that I thought they ever did, but there certainly was a lot of commerce taking place on the 12th.

Went through Chicago on 80/294 last night. Left the Gary Loves at 2000, saw trucks all over. Guess their 34's were over and they got back to work. Smooth sailing all the way through.

They started at the TA in Monee Jumped on 57 towards the tri- state to head to Downtown Chicago to protest outside of Trump Tower. ISP and CPD stopped them before they could get off at Lake Shore Drive. And that was that. 30 total.
