Ok, we did a thread about whether or not Twitter was worth messing with, and the answer is no. But that thread also confirmed something I already knew which was a lot of people like sharing photos on Facebook. So now I have a new question...

What if you could simply email a photo to a normal email address like and it would automatically be uploaded into your own personal photo gallery here on TruckingTruth and would show up on your profile page? All you would have to do is snap a picture, hit the "share" button, choose "email", and send the photo. Bam. Done. Just like that it goes straight into your own photo gallery just like it does on Facebook. No logging in. No coming to the website. Just email the photo and I do the rest.

And as a bonus, any text you put in the email message would become the caption for the picture and everyone would see it.

I did that exact thing yesterday. I snapped a picture, hit "share", chose "email", and sent it to a buddy of mine, all in about 45 seconds.

If I setup something like that, do you guys think you might use it? I was thinking it would be awesome to have pictures of people as they work their way into trucking.....the first day at school, the first time in a truck, the day you get your CDL , and of course the biggie - your first truck when it's time to go solo. That would be awesome!

And for those who aren't sure if you'd use it much or not, would you at least be willing to send a few pictures once I set it up to get the ball rolling?



Commercial Driver's License (CDL)

A CDL is required to drive any of the following vehicles:

  • Any combination of vehicles with a gross combined weight rating (GCWR) of 26,001 or more pounds, providing the gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of the vehicle being towed is in excess of 10,000 pounds.
  • Any single vehicle with a GVWR of 26,001 or more pounds, or any such vehicle towing another not in excess of 10,000 pounds.
  • Any vehicle, regardless of size, designed to transport 16 or more persons, including the driver.
  • Any vehicle required by federal regulations to be placarded while transporting hazardous materials.


Hours Of Service

HOS refers to the logbook hours of service regulations.


When a violation by either a driver or company is confirmed, an out-of-service order removes either the driver or the vehicle from the roadway until the violation is corrected.

That's a great ideal!! I'm on I-90 right now in Montana snow everywhere! Taking picture with my new camera cuz my mom love the picture of my trip and the places I've been. I made to do more work since I use a Tri and not a smart phone to take my pics. But still epic ideal tho!!!!!!

What an excellent idea, especially since I couldn't even figure out how to load a photo into my profile . . .
