Nice. Can a video be posted on here or does it have to link to YouTube?

Just paste the link to the page the video is on in your comment and I'll put the video in for ya - assuming it's something pretty cool or helpful of course.

I've gotta figure out how to upload multiple photos.

After you do one photo, hit that same blue "Photo" button again and it will do another one.

Here's our latest load, sheetrock from Oklahoma to Utah. Sorry for the picture quality. I forgot to take one till we stopped in southern Colorado, and the clouds covered up the sun.

On our way to the shipper we went through some high winds in Texas. Seven or eight power line poles came down right next to us. I could see the top of one pole about five feet from the passenger window. We had to do a U turn in the middle of the highway because there were power lines across the road. After the police arrived to extricate a man and his wife from their pickup that had a power line running across the roof, we detoured and got to our load about 10 pm. We finished tarping and strapping about 2 am. It takes longer to tarp in 30 mph winds. Thankfully the rain didn't get there till we were done. They say getting there is half the fun.

Shipper:

The customer who is shipping the freight. This is where the driver will pick up a load and then deliver it to the receiver or consignee.

Here are two loads: the drywall we had to drop and retarp at the yard (red yard tarps in the background), and our new steel load heading to Missouri.

This load of structural steel goes from Missouri to Ohio. It's 10 layers high, so we had to do a lot of belly straps.
