Their plan is to bring up to 1,000,000 trucks into DC, and shut everything down. Even if they will not manage to enter the capital, the highways will still be blocked, so stock up provisions that will last you for up to 5 days.
UPDATE: FOX News reported that only hundreds of truckers, instead of thousands, showed up for the protest , while the alternative media reported up to 3,000 trucks in the first day.
