Re: My 600th Article


Recommended Posts

OK ... it's mush-time and a beautiful Saturday morning coming from the Southern California mountains.

 

I want to share with you that this week, I proudly completed my 600th article over 23-years in writing for American Towman and Tow Industry Week On-line. That number doesn't include what I post here, yet, it's been a really long, fun and interesting  journey.

 

Accordingly, I've covered all kinds of topics based on what I've read on TowForce or where ever my searches take me. It's led me to get friendships both personally and professionally at home and internationally. I give thanks to my best pal Christine and my kids for all the hours that they've donated by sharing with me and the towing and recovery industry. My military teaching environment and those boys in blue. My family has graciously given me the time (at home and away) to teach, travel and hide-out in my writing place so I can do what I love to do. While I've pissed off a few personalities along the way, "I call's em; as I see's em". I want to thank you all for being part of this process.

 

Anyway, at the moment, Christine's out with our oldest daughter and she thinks I'm doing my chores ... I'd better get with it.  Best Regards. Gotta' go.      R.

Congratulations Sir and thank you and your family for all you have done and sacrificed for our industry. I have been reading American Towman Since I was a kid bouncing around the passenger seat of Dad's trucks. I have always enjoyed your articles and nowadays there isnt a day that goes by where I dont use or can reference something I have learned from your writings. I have always been a knowledge is power kinda person and I have learned very much from you and I continue to do so today. I have been working in this industry 23 years and I am still eager to learn something new daily.  And as a side note, you had to just rub in the whole "beautiful so-cal morning" thing.... We here just finished up with a snow and ice storm that dumped 1" of ice and a foot and a half of snow with temps around 12 degrees or so..... 😑

PROFESSIONAL TOWING & RECOVERY IS NOT JUST A JOB.. IT IS A LIFESTYLE

Thanks for doing such a great job. They say time flies when you’re having fun. Can’t believe it’s been that long. Then I realize I’ve been driving a tow truck since 1977!!  Keep up the good work. I look forward to your articles.

Congrats, always like reading your articles. Keep it up and your part of the few keeping me coming back to these forums. I hardly look at FB anymore, it has just lost it's appeal and become a waste of my time. I log in here a couple of times a week and when I get an email. Please Lord no more Tower Downs....

Thanks guys for your messages back. I appreciate the interaction that I find here on TowForce. My only wish is there were thousands more towers with ideas, comments and posts. Your posts are the ideas that drive my motivation to write on new topics.

 

Thanks for all you do too. Best Regards.      R.

Randy,

 

I have said it to you privately, and will say it publicly, you are one of the mentors I have followed since the beginning. I always made it a point to sit in on your seminars in Baltimore, as often as I could, and have ready almost all of your towing related work, modeling much of my own work as a communicator and educator after you. Thank you for sticking with our industry and pursuing better even when the industry itself seems to have no regard for improvement. I am honored to know you and be a friend to you.

 

600 is quite an achievement. I hope someday to have half that amount of published works. I really never thought I would get as far as I have, and in fact was just speaking about this today with another industry figure and Hall of Fame member that has helped me tremendously.
