I hope you didn't just give Turtle and Old School a heart attack!

I certainly hope there is other securement that is not in the picture.

Now don't everybody jump to contusions. That strap is just to hold the wooden crate top in place. The driver obviously wasn't done with the rest of the strapping. Or maybe it was Todd's first attempt ……..?

Some of those a/c units are secured only by a bolt running from each corner down through the rubrail. Straps or chains over the top would damage the a/c. That could be the case here, only the wood framing up top is usually meant for strapping the unit down. I just can't help but wonder if the strap is only meant to hold an unseen tarp on top of the unit.


Hours Of Service

HOS refers to the logbook hours of service regulations.

I wish that pictured showed more, so we could get the “big picture” (no pun intended). There has to be something more than what we are getting with that angle.

Yup, that piece of wood is staying attached just fine!
