Landstar BCO Days 2015

I had a chance just this weekend to attend my very first Landstar BCO Days event. BCO stands for Business Capacity Owner. We all own our own small business here and it is a great model that they have built. It is not for everyone, but a lot of us do just fine here.

Built on a non forced dispatch basis, we run our own show. Landstar corporate puts on the feed bag once a year and shows us the appreciation they have for us. We enjoy the climate here and it shows. I will post the photos I have from the event. A lot of these will be from the early morning before most of the attendees have arrived. I also will include some of the packed events, many time there was standing room only.

Early morning photos from the first day are next. After getting registered and getting our goodie bags we went for breakfast. It was always good and they kept us very well fed.

The tent was huge, there came a time when the attendance was about 1500 people. The tent photos first here will be early morning and folks sitting down and eating. It was a long day and coffee was mandatory.

Our introduction to our new president Jim Gattoni was good. We got an idea of who he was and his vision for the company.

The next photos will be from the vendors who displayed large cars and other trucks. You will see a few that will make you do some wishing I am sure. They had Indiana Custom Sleeper show up and I toured the insides at least twice. Beats the hell out of standing up with very little room and trying to get dressed in the morning.

Some of the next photos shown will be a collection. I was snapping photos like crazy and not all turned out as is the case with an event like this.

The Next Day We Had Bad Storms In The Area

Storms raged around us and we eventually retired to the main corporate building as a precaution. Note the water running on the floors as our tents were set up in a parking lot. It all went well and we had a good time anyways despite the weather.

I Met A New Friend

On occasion I meet people who have found my trucking videos but this has to take the cake. Hylton Smith is from New Zealand and he has to not only be the furthest traveled guest for BCO Days, but he had found me from my videos and has been talking with me via Facebook and YouTube comments. I was pleased to make a new friend that day.

Good to finally meet up with you and I am glad you were able to make such a long trip to see all of us Landstar folks!

This post took me hours to complete and I have a lot more photos to share. I will do another post later on and show the truck beauty contest and the truck driving competition. I only hope you folks are able to load such an image heavy page as it is. I do hope you like what you see here and will hit a share button and show others.
