I’m seeing lots of reports of heavy rain that’s putting a damper on things, but the truckers are driving around in it anyway.
There’s also several posts about some 48-60 ‘rogue’ drivers who broke away and are cruising around the Pentagon and some of the memorials.
I found this one on Twitter taken this morning.
I’d say they’re getting pretty close!
This may be a repeat from yesterday??
More to come later….

The unofficial ‘Pace Car’
Red, White and Blue Trucks to match Old Glory
More on their way in and the following is the story from one of the trucker’s wives in above trucks.
“There is a ton of good ones (pictures) going up on the net from people taking them from the roadside. It’s impossible to get them from inside the truck. It’s rainy and nasty!
We are getting harassed by the police. Pulled over three times.
Impeding traffic. One guy got a ticket for doing 39 in a minimum 40… In wet, rainy weather.
They pulled one of the pickups over and ticketed him for not having a medical card. He doesn’t need a medical card! He’s not a commercial driver..
We all pull over when one gets pulled over and lay on our air horns.
They are making stuff up.
We are going to fight all tickets. The guy with the 39 ticket had a dash cam showing him doing 41.
We are going to eat right now. Tired and hungry. Been on the road since 5:30.
Hoping someone can give me a count tonight… We have at least 50 with us.”
