A Happy Truck Day to All of You

Today in Boston, the unofficial start of Spring Training kicked off when the annual ritual of the tractor trailer truck moving equipment from Fenway Park to Fort Myers, Florida occurred this morning. Yes, it's Truck Day in Red Sox Nation.

Most of America looks at Groundhog Day as the harbinger of the coming spring, but for Red Sox fans, the Truck means that the spring is not far away.

The Truck, from Atlas Van Lines, left Fenway at 10 this morning, and will spend most of the time on Route 95 going down south. It should reach Ft. Myers by Sunday or Monday. And courtesy of the Boston Globe and Google, here is the route the Truck will be taking on its nearly 1,500 mile journey to Florida:,+Boston,+MA&daddr=2201+Edison+Avenue,+Fort+Myers,+FL&sll=37.0625,-95.677068&sspn=31.095668,59.238281&ie=UTF8&z=5&om=0

Hope you all have a Happy Truck Day. Raise a cold one tonight to the coming season, as spring is just around the corner.

Fuel is the adrenaline of any car, truck or engine. Thus, it is every vehicle owner's wish to enhance the fuel of their car and save more of it as well. With this in mind, the most innovative fuel-saving tool in the automotive industry was conceptualized and created: the Tornado Fuel saver. An automotive air channeling tool that creates a swirling air motion, the Tornado Fuel Saver allows the air to move in a faster and more efficient way by whirling air around corners and bends. Hence, more fuel is saved.
