My Truck Buddy will not be shutting down the Beltway

Just an FYI -- there's a thing happening starting today called "Truckers Ride for the Constitution." Apparently thousands of truckers are going to come to the DC area and basically clog the roadways.

Now, this probably won't endear me with some in the industry, but come on. You will not find a more zealous defender of the Constitution than me, but with all the misery in the region right now, jamming a hot poker into the perpetually festering wound we call DC traffic is not going to inspire a lot of sympathy for the cause. It's just going to hack a lot of people off, including me.

So, if you see one of our trucks caught in a moving roadblock, please know that MTB is not participating in this event. We have better things to do like, oh, I don't know, staying in business and, ideally, finding a new place for MTB World HQ.
