While the numbers are hard to pin down, the reality is drivers don't make much when factoring out overhead costs.
My road trip begins on Friday. I am so excited about getting on a plane and heading off to Atlantic City, N.J., for LCT Show East. I had the opportunity to visit with the folks at Tiffany Coach in Southern California this week, where they were working on the final touches on the vehicles to be displayed at the Show.
Everyone seems to be so excited about this Show after LCT’s absence on the East coastsince our last show at the Mohegan Sun in Connecticut in 2009. We at LCT are excited, too.
The LCT editorial team arrives on Saturday night. If anyone wants to connect with us after 9 p.m., let me know by posting here. We would love to spend time with you and learn what you want us to write about over the next year. We will also be seeking comments and opinions about our Show and how we can make it even better next year.
You can find me at the LCT booth on the Show floor every day of the Show. I’ll have my camera, so please stop by and maybe you’ll be in the magazine as we report about the Show. Maybe we’ll even hit that $1 beer blitz on the show floor both days at 4 p.m.
Let the better times roll.
