Seen this dog waiting for security to check him in at my yard a couple days ago. I've seen quite a few different breeds in trucks but this is the first St Bernard.

Where would the owner store all the dog food? Those large breeds eat a LOT!

Good catch, Anne. That is a dog from my company. The driver shortage has forced the company to find dogs with a CDL , (Commercial Dog License), and at least 6 months of experience.

CDL:

Commercial Driver's License (CDL)

A CDL is required to drive any of the following vehicles:

  • Any combination of vehicles with a gross combined weight rating (GCWR) of 26,001 or more pounds, providing the gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of the vehicle being towed is in excess of 10,000 pounds.
  • Any single vehicle with a GVWR of 26,001 or more pounds, or any such vehicle towing another not in excess of 10,000 pounds.
  • Any vehicle, regardless of size, designed to transport 16 or more persons, including the driver.
  • Any vehicle required by federal regulations to be placarded while transporting hazardous materials.

This was I Dodge City. I told the horse to my left that I was a super trucker. Notice the reaction. I was so busted.

Those poker chips are a nod to the tradition we have of leaving coins on the headstones of our fallen brothers. Each coin denomination means a different thing. I’ve ridden with Tour of Honor for a few years now. Great group of riders! Appreciate that you placed them back.

I'm parked at the VFW for the night in Kinsley, KS. The museum next door is closed, but I was still able to check out this old locomotive. Found a geocache inside of it too!

And at the VFW...

As well as these, found on a stone memorial. I placed them back where I found them.

I'm literally saving that pic, emailing it to Marc Lee, and plastering on Facebook; THIS is the product of Trucking Truth, hahahah!

Didn't I TELL YOU, to GET OUT OF DODGE ?!?!? rofl-3.gif

That in itself, is an honor. My late brother (former SEAL) was a part of something similar.

Thank you for your Service, good sir.

0217703001567047411.jpg Ever see The Mothman Prophecies? This is the bridge. I swear those red glowing eyes weren’t there when I took the picture.

I know this is 3 years old, but the thought came to mind that it's probably an infrared device of some sort. You don't see the infrared, but a digital camera will; thus, his comment, about not seeing those red lights when he took the pic, would make sense.

Neat idea for a thread! Hope to add to it myself someday in the near future.

This was at a paper-related shipper I was at today. Domtar Paper Company in Rothschild, WI.

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.

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.

Taken on I-90 this morning at daybreak between Sundance and Moorcroft, WY. Snowing and 19 degrees to the west, with a sunrise to the east of me.

This was at the Georgia Welcome Center on I-75 southbound. I checked the receiver and got a dial tone. Don't see these very often.
