Ontario-based @former trucker18 Jeff Wilken – now “back in the saddle” on the road, he notes – responded to Overdrive contributing editor Wendy Parker’s June tale of a hair-pulling series of drops on a multi-stop load with a bit of hard-earned wisdom in favor of such hauls, characteristic of his feed: “You make your own luck. Every drop is more revenue without turning a wheel, which is good. Beats driving you’re a** off.”

@BrookedTaylor is the handle of Brooke Taylor, sharing humor and views relative to trucking, musical “flashback faves” and more from a home base in Nova Scotia. Taylor makes claim to tastes in “largecars with bling, a positive attitude, fine whiskey, tinkering, music, sports and a good time.” Keep on truckin’…

@OsborneTrucking shares industry news with an emphasis on equipment- and driver-related items for followers of the self-described “family owned and operated” Cincinnati, Ohio-area dry van fleet. No small emphasis on history, here, too. Recent updates included a story/pictures of an electric car charging (in 1905), a series on the R model Mack and more.

Safety isn’t a buzzword and seeming catchall reason behind any and every regulation you can imagine only in North America. The @iamsafetypoet Twitter account shares witticisms and wisdom from the African continent – the difference between the two often blurred, as in this tweet from July: “I got 99 problems, driving safe ain’t one!”
