  1. Savannah is Home.. Mother and Daughter are reunited, yes I was waiting at the airport. I took the picture, no one wants to see me. LOL
  2. Brian, I have a master log I refer to when in doubt. If I recall you changed screen names at some point.
  3. I so want the names of these company vehicles in violation of Slow Down Move Over. I want to send their companies a copy of this video. In hopes they have a safety director that could review the danger with their drivers. It's bad enough that a 4 wheeler does not respect the emergency vehicle. But when a commercial driver does it, that uncalled for and call needs to be made to there company. How can we as an industry get this word out to trucking companies so they are fully aware of our dangers and their drivers are a contributing factor?
  4. Friday was the last day at camp and this camper did not want Savannah to leave.
  5. Sounds great, the challenge is for recoveries. Save some really good general hook ups and later this year will do something with loading roll calls, carriers and tilt trays.
  6. Interesting, I placed this is the list as a light duty entry. However, I need a truck hooked up to the bike in the images to qualify. it seems that isn't stated in the rules. We wanted few rules.
  7. Sorry, I'll take my business someplace else if the business has obviously chosen not to display the American Flag they once flew proudly. There are enough Patriotic Americans that it could be felt. Sadly not enough solidarity and with that said, flag burning will be the common place before long.
  8. Does your company fly the American Flag? In an time when many businesses have chosen to take down the American Flag, those businesses that proudly Fly the Flag stand out. Noticing that several flags were missing from businesses on a busy roadway. I asked a manager at convenience store about the missing flag from their pole. He said that corporate had the flag taken down as it may be offensive to some customers. Asked if it would be up for the Fourth of July and he could not answer that, even though he was standing by red white and blue packaged fireworks for sale. Has your company chosen to take down the the American Flag? I have hope it is still Flying High, post a picture of your flag for the Fourth of July! Celebrate Proudly... The Red White & Blue!
  9. For those new to TowForce, Savannah has been a part of Tow411 since she was born in 2004. Born at 26 weeks she spent 91 days in the NICU. The members of Tow411 continually sent thoughts and prayers. We lined a wall with all those in the first few days when it was touch and go. We were told she would not survive and then she would never be able to well anything from know our names to be able to take care of herself. Crediting the power of collective thought, great doctors and nurses she over came every obstacle in front of her. So regardless of your believes, Savannah is a testimonial and her faith is strong. She is encouragement to any parent going through such a life event. Whatever life puts in front of you never lose the Faith.. Savannah hasn't and her Faith has grown stronger. I credit the members who sent those Thoughts and Prayers for her sucess. Note: In 2004 Social Media was still in the early stages. So, lining a wall with all the print outs was amazing and not fully understood by many who saw these words of encouragement from all over the world.
  10. Likely one of the bots found your post associated with the name and/or email in your account. If you want to opt out of that, then I can turn it off on your account. It's an app we're using and just one of the new features credited to the New Force in the Towing Industry. Just something we're trying out. You'll find this kind of thing all over the board along with feeds from websites, blogs, youtube, etc. @ChuckTWT
  11. Current Count 41 of 3532 Registered Members. Yep, seems about right for the first day. Now let's break into the 2% response today. GO
  12. The kids all arrive at the camp yesterday and Savannah is having a great time. Again, thanks to everyone that supported her during the fundraiser held a few months ago.
  13. On Tow411 we always held an Annual Member Roll Call. During the first quarter of each year a Member Roll Call post was created. The purpose of the Roll Call is to hear from members that primarily lurk throughout the year. Members that we have not heard from in the past 18 months are subject to a purge. This means they will need to register again if the have not logged in during an 18 month time frame. With the change to TowForce on a new message board system we need to hold the twice a year until all members have make the change themselves or transfer in small batches. Sorry the files would not all transfer between the two systems. Our apologies and if you find your screen name is not available it could have been transfer without notification. We are trying our best to prevent that but it has occurred a couple of times in the last 18 months. To sign the Roll Call simply add a reply. The reply can be as simple as HERE or it can be a statement, a quote, a company name, a goal or any short note you would like to leave. Really anything, as much or as little as just HERE. While we cannot guarantee a prize. One of our valued sponsors may add something as a give-a-way when they sign our Roll Call. Let's get this Rolling as this Topic will only remain open from July 1st to July 11th.

  14. For those that desire to talk politics with other Tow Operators. The Polititow forum is where Tow Truck Operators Talk Politics "Forum is open to members during each Presidential Election Cycle" which runs about 18 months. Nearly anything goes, just keep it civil. In the past this was a request entry level forum. With the new system it would have to be a Club Level forum. In the new system we are just opening it up to all registered members. Lurkers will need to register to enter the forums in the Command Center Category.
  15. How to Enter to Win: Each Light Duty Recovery Topic a member creates from July 1, 2019 to October 1, 2019 which includes a minimum of 4 images and a minimum of one paragraph narrative describing the recovery and even what equipment equipment was used will be entered into this drawing. The more topics a member creates the better their odds are of winning. Yes, you can stack the deck Towing & Recovery Topics which lead to constructive discussion were the norm for many years on social media as relates to the message board. On other forms of social media today there are images without a narrative or even a dialog. The dialog we do see is reminiscent of the early days of Tow41. Today, we seek to bring back constructive discussion and also avoid the good job type responses the members complained about in the early days of the Towing Information Network. Topics can be created in Light Duty & Carrier Recoveries. These need to be actual recoveries and not just regular hooks or what is on the truck type images. Those can be posted in Light Duty & Carrier Towing, these are Recoveries. Here is a Bonus for those who will be participating: Simply add a reply in this topic and receive an additional entry with your first recovery topic. TowForce reserves the right to extend this promotion through 100 entries. Thanks 1) Orcas Tow - Narrow Road Recovery 2) ESC - Motorcycle on top of a car 3) dperone - 2 Car in the Woods 4) Orcas Tow - 32' travel trailer disconnect 5) ESC - Fishing for a pickup 6) Mooresbp - On a culvert 7) Orcas Tow - Bring the small truck he said 8> Orcas Tow - 15k pin puller on steep narrow driveway 9) Orcas Tow - Making use of what's available 10) Orcas Tow - Tractor down on nasty driveway 11) dperone - Hot & Sweaty Chevy on Chevy Action 12) 13) 14) 15)
  16. Savannah made it to Old Town Warsaw today and they all had some Lody. Yeah, Lody is Ice Cream. It's suppose to be really good Ice Cream. Anyone know first hand if that is true. Sure hope are resident Polock checks in. I'd say he knows of the Lody. Kevin Cieciorka aka @Kevin aka polock
  17. Thank you MarcRowan, you are now number 3 in the drawing. The more qualifying recovery topics you create, the better your odds. Oh, wait a minute I am being told that it's not longer politically correct and if we cannot give everyone a prize then don't do it. In checking, their are no PC Police on TowForce. Not many grammar police either, that's Facebook. We know what you meant here.
