First load with the new truck, delivering the lift on back tomorrow morning, and the scissor lifts Tuesday morning.

Looking good. You do know that they grow those in huge man lift forests... Someone posted a photo of the forest one time, maybe even in this thread... LOL

My loads seem to be big ones lately. Multi day loads too. Normally I am unloaded the same day or the next day. I am having to drive 4.5 hours to the pickup location and then overnight for an early am loading then drive about 5.5 hours back It takes longer when you are 150k or more gross weight.

I only had time and only thought about it once to get a photo of this bridge beam. This baby was 102 feet long and weighed just shy of 140k. Grossing somewhere in the neighborhood of 200k with the jeep and dolly. I was 149 feet, bumper to bumper. Oh and I hate traffic lights, especially when they turn yellow and the trailer turns right. What a pain that is. Anywho... here is the photo.

Here's the opposite of one of Pat's loads! Four air conditioners weighing just over 5k pounds, Laredo to Chicagoland.

Well, back to normal kinda today with the exception that this thing went up to a mine and the trailer tires went off the bank on one turn. All you can do when that happens is close your eyes and hit the throttle... LOL Told him to cancel the grader because I leveled off all the high spots...

Had to take this 13 foot wide shaker screen back to Idaho. Because of the construction on Lookout Pass we had to veer off at Missoula and take 200 across to 95 and then down to Rathdrum because of the width restriction. Beautiful drive. But we were only 6 miles from the interstate when I dropped this off.
