I like the people here. Just went to Walmart for a magnetic CB antenna. Sometimes I ride with truckers, sometimes in SUV with Ann Vandersteel and Producer Liz. We don’t have CB in SUV so I bought one at a truck stop but needed a magnetic antenna. Handheld CBs do not work inside vehicles. Seemed like a faraday cage. Nothing coming in at all even when I pushed squelch all the way open.
In Walmart, when I asked for a CB antenna, the young sales clerk asked if I am with the convoy. I said yes. He offered words of encouragement saying this town is totally behind the truckers and all are welcome here. More info on the route here.
