    Anyone else going to be in the convoy this year? It is a benefit for the Make a Wish Foundation. I heard that last year, UPS had the most tractors there! Look at the line of our tractors in the picture on their website.

    I should have added that this event is THIS SUNDAY, Sept 21.

    The annual Wishes On Wheels Convoy will start at the FedEx Ground facility on Ruby Road just off I-84 (exit 71) near the Massachusetts border in Willington, CT and travel west on I-84, make a u-turn and head east, back to FedEx Ground. This will give participants a chance to view this spectacular event while it’s happening.

    A forward to 6:12 gives a good idea of the amount of UPS tractors. WOW, that had to be all the tractors from a major hub. An impressive size convoy.

    We had a package car convoy last year for a different reason. One of our brother drivers died of a heart attack on the consignee's shipping dock. They had to get special permisson from corp office and his family loved it. The procession was covered by the local news. Sorry, I know this isn't what this thread was about.
