Well I hauled a load of scrap over to Billings today and picked up my load for the return.... The truck was blushing when I went through the scales....

These are wing walls for some bridge beams we will be moving on Monday. 3700 lbs total. The good thing is that with this customer there is a minimum haul charge of 43k.

I haven't taken many photos lately, but here are a couple I did remember to get.

The coolest load I've had so far was two new Cat backhoes, straight from the factory floor in Texas to Wyoming. They even smelled new when I was securing them.

Have to protect the paint from the chains, which meant a little improvising with scraps from an old tarp.

Today I delivered a load of bentonite clay from Wyoming to a little town in Oklahoma. They're using this stuff to repair the lining for the sewage lagoons.

I had to go down a narrow gravel road, turn around on some grass, and back between the lagoons to get to the place where they unloaded. You reefer drivers got nothing on me!

As a bonus, here's some beardcicles I got when unloading in Chicago when it was -2F.

Great pics... I have had a few of those cicles this year too. Last trip, there was more snow on the ground in Amarillo than there was in Billings.

This was my 359 (Cummins big cam 400 w/401 jake heads, Spicer 6 speed main box with a Brownie 1241 4 speed and 5:53 to1 drivers) , I'm at Yosemite National Park. We tried like heck to make this a three log load but that healboom just didn't have the ponies to lift the log, we had to cut it in half. They welded chain hooks on the graples and you can just make out the chain wrap. logging truck being loaded with giant logs Getting ready to roll at 16.5' tall and 92,000 gross and those were dead standing snags. (Note the log sticking up just above my hood lying on the ground behind my truck and did ya notice the bunk logs are notched at the stakes?)logging truck being loaded with giant logs
