Spring Time for Food Trucks

Share with your Friends

EricW //
Spring has arrived! Well, at least on the calendar it has! 
I know that for many food truck operators and food trucks lovers, Springtime is the beginning of the season for food truck eating indulgence, at least in many part of the country.
For me, it means getting ready for the first of many trips over the next few weeks to visit food trucks in cities that I will often be visiting for the first time. It will also provide an opportunity to stop at events at which there will be as  many as 200 food trucks as well as 1,000’s of food truck lovers, whom I affectionately call “Trucker Lovers”.  If you happen to be on Twitter, I am trying to get  #TruckerLvr to take off!  Please join the fun! 
So, my first rite of Spring trip starts on Thursday morning when I depart for Tampa and Jacksonville, Florida, followed by some time in South Carolina, primarily in Hilton Head.  If you know the food truck scene really well then you may know that Hilton Head lacks food trucks! But it does have lots of tennis and I hope warm, sunny weather. I am looking forward those few days off and will attempt to burn off some of the many delicious calories that are happily in my future over the next few weeks.
Of course I will share the details as I go along but wanted to start by letting you know what I will be up to and where I'll be, all in the name of spreading my love of food trucks and
