    what is "from the road"?

    Here's the complete sentence:
    Sales share best practices and other stories from the road, creating stronger relationships with his teammates.

    I would like to ask what is "from the road".
    Many thanks in advance!

    Re: what is "from the road"?

    Shouldn't the first words be "The salesman"? If that's the case, it should be followed by "shares". That way, "with his teammates" at the end would make sense.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    That would also make it a sentence.
