The Hero of the Day
Double that to two thumbs up for Conard, Good Samaritan of the month! He averted a huge ordeal for a fellow truck driver by realizing that the other driver can't make it on the road into the drop off place where they are headed. Conard is probably 6 hours ahead of the guy (whose trailer is almost twice as long as Conards) and has already doubled back, lined up the Highway Patrol to direct traffic, called a wrecker company to help lift the guys hind end around corners, and contacted the other truck driver, his escort, and the company they work for to let them know of the impending problem. He shrugs it off but I say it's all in a days work if you are a superhero.
