Trucking Nation Podcast: 18. IFTA, Stories from the Road, & Veggies for Truckers
What’s up, Trucking Nation? Hopefully, the road is treating you well these past few weeks. I have a great show for you filled with IFTA info and some stories from the road. I also throw in a health and fitness chat at the end. Click that Play button and let the good times roll!
Here’s The Rundown
An interesting way to tell a story
I really enjoy reading those Highway Hero and Knight of The Road stories. It just warms my heart knowing there are people who still care in this crazy world. OverdriveOnline.com published a Knight of the Road story that is completely different from anything I have ever seen. It was just too cool not to talk about. It has these really great illustrations with it and at the end it shows a real picture of Vijaydeep Sahasi (the truck operator that saved a woman having a heart attack). It is an amazing story and told in told just cool way. Check it out.

Veggies made for Truckers
If you are not a big vegetable fan, don’t worry we can convert you (insert evil laugh). There are a good amount of veggies that keep well on the road and you can check them out in this blog I wrote – Eat Your Veggies Day. I’m really a big fan of grilling veggies when the weather is nice. I swear it just makes them better and splash on some lemon juice with a few spices and the world is magically a better place. Give it go and try something different; you only have one life so why not, right?
I hope you enjoyed the show and thank you so much for listening. I know this summer is going to be something amazing and I will make sure to tell you everything. Get your fitness on whenever you can and enjoy some great veggies, truckers. Remember you get what you give in this world, so try to be kind and enjoy the ride. Talk to you soon – Misty Noel.
