Let's see some photos that you have taken on your trips across this great country of ours. I'll start with a few... Let's see if we can make this thread even bigger than the famous Flatbed Variety thread....

While driving I see so many things that are very photographical. But I'm driving, and 1/2 a second later the scene is gone. Wish there was something that could record what I'm seeing (besides my own memory). Many things are to the side of the road, and a driver cam would not catch it.

PSD:

Prime Student Driver

Prime Inc has a CDL training program and the first phase is referred to as PSD. You'll get your permit and then 10,000 miles of on the road instruction.

The following is from Prime's website:

Prime’s PSD begins with you obtaining your CDL permit. Then you’ll go on the road with a certified CDL instructor for no less than 75 hours of one-on-one behind the wheel training. After training, you’ll return to Prime’s corporate headquarters in Springfield, Missouri, for final CDL state testing and your CDL license.

Obtain CDL Permit / 4 Days

  • Enter program, study and test for Missouri CDL permit.
  • Start driving/training at Prime Training Center in Springfield, Missouri.
  • Work toward 40,000 training dispatched miles (minimum) with food allowance while without CDL (Food allowance is paid back with future earnings).

On-the-Road Instruction / 10,000 Miles

  • Train with experienced certified CDL instructor for 3-4 weeks in a real world environment.
  • Get 75 hours of behind-the-wheel time with one-on-one student/instructor ratio.
  • Earn 10,000 miles toward total 40,000 miles needed.

Very cool pictures. I hear you on that Errol, the other problem is enjoying the scene too long and then BAM! it's gone. Then you want to kick yourself for not getting a photo.

I will say that I am looking very much so forward to the scenes such as y'all have posted thus far!

Really, things that belong in a photograph. For instance, on a mowed lawn, several Canadian geese sit - bodies squat ovals with their heads lifted high sort of like golf clubs or curling stones.

Like this, only more of them: canada-goose-resting-lawn-10679367.jpg

OOS:

When a violation by either a driver or company is confirmed, an out-of-service order removes either the driver or the vehicle from the roadway until the violation is corrected.

Some "cool" graffiti I saw on a train next to where I was getting unloaded at Cargill in North Vancouver, BC:

A neat little section of I-70 (both east and westbound) in "Colorada" (as I like to pronounce it):

World Headquarters of Cabela's, my favorite store!

No idea where I took this, maybe Salt Lake?

Hey California, your hammer lane is on the wrong side! Silly state...

Lolo Pass, quit it with your treachery:

Cape Charles, VA... a quaint little seaside cottage town. I love it!

The view from a rest area in eastern Utah:

A free, continuous flow of fresh, ice cold mountain water on the side of the road between Helena and Missoula, MT. Pat, I bet you've seen this! And no, my legs are not really 25 feet long:

IMG_20150911_193148498.jpgIMG_20150911_193140000.jpg

Coolest rest area ever, lakeside in southeast BC:

Amish guy in Wisconsin cutting down his field the old-fashioned way: in a horse-drawn carriage with a spinning blade sticking out from the right wheel, a la that scene from Gladiator. So cool!

IMG_20150810_142422273.jpg

Every time I pass this water tower, I just have to say it in my best southern drawl: "Florence, y'all!"

HUGE sunflower field in Saskatchewan:

Again, no idea where this is:

Arizona? New Mexico? Something like that:
