    Once again it is time for the annual Wishes on Wheels Truck Convoy to benefit the Make a Wish Foundation. Hopefully we will keep UPS's record intact with having the most trucks/package cars in the convoy.

    This all takes place in CT.

    It's next Sunday, Sept 20th. I signed up, but I'm not sure my work schedule for next week yet.

    Anyone else going?

    No! Package guys come too. (I think Package tries to hide the fact that you can go).

    C'mon, Big. Ask about it, you can even bring a guest. I bring my wifey. A lot of guys bring their kid or girlfriend or mistress....

    We have something down here called "Touch a Truck", or something like that. All different kinds of trucks will be parked somewhere and they let kids climb through them and sit in the driver's seat and blow the horn. Every once in a while UPS will send one with a few volunteers to show it off.

    Great cause!

    It would be fantastic if every UPSer in that area would show up.

    Actually, I backed out today. I can't justify (to myself) not working my scheduled workday to do this.
    Last year I was Mon - Fri, so it didn't cost me a day.

    Wifeys bummed. She likes ridin' in the tractor!
