I've been carrying my laptop with me on the road - with Streets & Trips, it allows me to reality-check directions I get from dispatch, which are frequently misleading, confusing, or just plain wrong. But apart from the occasional websurfing on the wi-fi at certain truck stops, I've gotten little use from it. Well, that's changing. I've decided to make use of a webcam I've had for years.
That's right, I'm video blogging. A little duct tape to hold the webcam on the dashboard, plus a freeware webcam app, plus Windows Movie Maker, and I'm a movie producer! Or something like that. Pay no attention to my thick North Georgia accent. I spent years carefully cultivating a lack of any accent in my speech, then started driving a truck. Since then, I've relapsed.
