    Boys and Girls we have us a classic getting ready to go up on the Truckingboards Youtube Channel.
    Our great long time Mod and member Kennesaw Kid sent me a DVD with over 2 hours of footage of that special time in LTL Trucking history, The 1994 Strike Some of it is raw and grainy and remember this is 1994. Get a cup of coffee and enjoy.. All thanks goes to KK
    I am in the process of Ripping the DVD and uploading it to the Truckingboards Youtube Channel .. it is 5.7 gb and I have super fast internet but Youtube sometimes processes videos slow so until it processes it will say something like still processing ... Come back to this post and keep checking it... Boys you are in for a treat I tell ya.

    Please like video and subscribe to the Truckingboards Youtube Channel...

    I remember them days Ron Carey was president of teamsters they made Holland strike rather than allowing a "me too" agreement and continue operating. I just transfered from Milwaukee to Memphis.. I remember telling the guys at the barrel burn that those fireworks in the distant were kinda early for the year. They said "Those aint fireworks". LOL!
