This is a load of spiral duct I had to deliver to downtown Milwaukee, WI. Had to back into a parking lot, turn around, then back down this street and parallel park between the crane and another truck. Then me, and two guys from the HVAC contractor, loaded the spiral onto the crane forks one piece at a time.

As we speak, I'm actually in communication with my Russian comrades to hack the sites server. Once that happens right under Brett's nose there will be several changes being made by my Russian hackers.

1: This thread will be deleted permanently.

2: My title will be changed from 'Moderator' to 'Super Duper Moderator'.

3: Pat, you'll become a Moderator in place of Old School.

So my good friend, enjoy it while it lasts!

Oh man, it looks like we're at war with the Russians again! I knew Brett has been busy with something lately, I guess he's fighting off those Russian Mafia hackers. Or he could just be working on a new load securement section for the High Road Training Program that will help bring a few more of these flat- bedders into the forum.

I don't have enough vocabulary in one post to replace Old School!

Brett, I suggest that you call on your Romanian security specialists to deal with this threat.

Old School, you are going to have to put that shock collar back on Daniel!

Well, my truck is not available for use AGAIN! My boss decided to loan it to a customer so that they could finish a paving job. Their NEW Kenworth derated so far down that they could only get 5 mph out of it. Soooo I grabbed another truck this morning, loaded my truck on the lowboy and headed out. Got to the site even before they started making asphalt, man 3 am comes early. I then had to load the crippled truck on the lowboy and take it to the dealer in Great Falls. Almost covered the state north to south today.

Gotta love it when you can drive all day and never leave the state. Tomorrow though is a different story. Gotta pick up a CAT 320 excavator and take it to Utah.

Well today was a waste. I was sent to pick up a CAT 320 excavator to take to Utah. So I hooked up to the 2 axle RGN and headed out. 250 miles later I pull into the pit to pick up the excavator and ....... it was NOT a 320. What I found was a 336 instead. I verified that was the excavator that was to be taken and yep it was not moving today. The excavator I was supposed to pick up was to weigh 47k pounds but this monstrosity weighs in at 86k pounds. Well back home to swap to another trailer.
