I’m Impressed

Nov 9th, 2018 | By | Category: Geri Roskopf's Blog

I’m so impressed by each year’s Tow Times Shine ‘n Star winners. I know the truck owners are proud, but the manufacturers of these awesome pieces of equipment should also be proud to have their trucks in the magazine. Added to this are the artists who design […]



All For One, One For All

The Three Musketeers was an adventure novel set in France that told the tales of the three most formable members and good friends of the Musketeers of the Guard. Throughout their adventures (which reads like a modern-day soap opera) their motto was “all for one, […]



The Curve Ball

There’s excitement in the state of Wisconsin – the Milwaukee Brewers have reached October baseball. Watching their last two play-off games I realized I could never be a coach. It’s bad enough watching the game as a fan — hoping and praying for that last […]

For all you tow ladies: If you haven’t talked to a tow lady friend lately, I encourage you to make the call today. This morning I received a phone call from a tow lady friend I haven’t talked to in two months. It was nice […]



A Star is Born

Aug 10th, 2018 | By | Category: Geri Roskopf's Blog

I’m pretty sure most tow operators know of the star of the television show Highway thru Hell: Jamie Davis, owner of Jamie Davis Motor Truck and Auto, Inc. I’ve met him several times and I can say he is the real deal. Tow Times magazine […]



Another Perspective

A woman called about having her tire changed. She wanted to know how long and how much. Within a half hour, I said, and I told her the fee for the service call. “That long and that much?” she said. “Forget it.” I hope she […]
