Highway Thru Hell's [b]Davis in Las Vegas

Jamie Davis, the star of the popular cable TV show "Highway Thru Hell," will be at the Miller Industries booth during Tow Industry Week at the AT ShowPlace-Las Vegas, May 14-16.

Davis was profiled in the cover feature of American Towman's February 2015 issue.

"Highway Thru Hell" is a reality TV show that follows the operations of Jamie Davis Motor Truck, a heavy vehicle rescue and recovery towing company based in Hope, British Columbia, Canada. The show focuses on the hardships of operating along the highways of the British Columbia interior, especially the Coquihalla Highway, which is notorious for steep hills, lethal drop-offs, killer rockslides and rapidly changing weather.

Be sure to stop by the Miller Industries booth to get an autograph and picture.

AT Buyers Report

We recently put the April print issue of American Towman to bed, which has one of my favorite, and most hated, segments of the year: the Buyers Report.

It's a fantastic read. Dozens of towers over the course of many pages talk about the industry's suppliers. It's news you can use all year long and the kind of word-of-mouth testimonials that are hard to get outside of a Tow Expo.

Why do I dislike the issue so much? Getting a hold of so many towers on the phone in the course of a few weeks, during winter no less, is a tough job. Not as tough as towing, but ... it's a long process of calls, callbacks, texts and emails.

Don't miss it—the April issue will be at your door soon.

(At least we're not still faxing back and forth, I guess.)
