A big advantage of driving local is a constant possibility of seeing something historical, intetesting, unbelievable, and so on...

I try to take a spur of the moment day trip somewhere atleast once a month with the family. Its a great way to unwind from a busy week and spend quality time together since that time is limited on days I work. Today we went to a pretty cool former blue clay mine that was active for nearly 100 years near Mason City. They even had the kilns still onsite to make the brick and tile. Long ago Iowa was under the ocean and ended up leaving seashells and fossils from over 365 million years ago. I'd guess it was about 50 feet down to the bottom where we found a majority of the shells. Unfortunately it is not truck friendly and clear lake truck stops are about 30 minutes away.

0577436001620862741.jpg There had to be literally thousands of shells everywhere that the county encouraged you to take what found. We had a wonderful day but the best part was seeing the kids excitement as they found so many "fossils", although every single rock we walked by they said was one rofl-1.gif

Did they fly it back to the States? What aircraft did they use, if they did? C5?

The group before us had a microburst happen without warning. The aircraft was shoved 30ft from the wind and the clamshell door fell on the tail pylon. The frame got twisted and the aircraft was line hauled to a port in Alexandroupoli Greece. It was sent back on commercial a commercial ship to Corpus Christi, TX.

Line Haul:

Linehaul drivers will normally run loads from terminal to terminal for LTL (Less than Truckload) companies.

LTL (Less Than Truckload) carriers will have Linehaul drivers and P&D drivers. The P&D drivers will deliver loads locally from the terminal and pick up loads returning them to the terminal. Linehaul drivers will then run truckloads from terminal to terminal.
