Visiting Truck Driving Shows

By Owen Jones

Truck drivers work hard and are the backbone of the supply system of most countries in the world. Our provisions and our necessities of life would just not be easily obtainable without trucks and their drivers. Trains, boats and barges cannot do the same job. There are sure to be some truck drivers who just see driving as 'a job', but it is probable that most drivers love what they do and love the way of life.

They are modern day cowboys supplying the food to where people need it. These truckers love their way of life and they love being with similar-minded people, other truckers, which is why there are truck driving shows. Many truckers like to spend some of their spare time every year at a truck driving show or two. These shows can last a weekend or even a week and are intended to be pleasurable events for the whole family.

At these truck driving shows, visitors can expect to find thousands of similar-minded people, advice on modern semi-trucks, discounted insurance, new semi-truck accessories and clothing. That is enough to satisfy the business sense of the trucker, but there is also food, live concerts, and other forms of entertainment.

Truckers are regaled with heaps of information on all aspects of trucking: recent trends, new regulations and laws, up-to-the-minute border crossing rules and much, much more. Visitors will come away with bags full of documents to read at their convenience later.

Children love the stores, the side shows, the food and the live music, some of whom are very well-known. These truck driving shows are real showcases. Real razzmatazz with all the fun of the fair.

Manufacturers of semi-trucks and trailers put on exhibitions of the most recent models and frequently have professional drivers putting them through their paces before your eyes. You can also climb in to get the feel of being in the latest technology available at the moment. It is not strange to be offered a reduction, if you sign up for a new semi at the show.

Truckers are surveyed over and over again, but it gives them the chance to suggest changes to future models of semi. There may also be special offers from insurance companies and chances to join truckers' clubs and associations.

One of the most well-liked events is the Show and Shine, where working truckers show off there prized working vehicles. No show dogs here, only sheep dogs. All working trucks not just show trucks. Owner operators and independents really like them. They are for the genuine enthusiasts.

It is well-worth going to truck driving shows if you have never visited one. The truckers organization you are in should have a list of the truck driving shows in your area, otherwise you can go on line and find lots of them in the summer months. If you want to go for free, why not arrange a drop or / and a load in the area so the stay over pays for itself?
