I also see lines of evergreens planted along hwys, which is probably for the same purpose.

Correct. Out in Minnesota along the state highways and county roads, a lot of the local farmers will leave a row or two of corn up so it helps catch the snow during the winter and help keep the roads from getting covered as quick.

If anyone had looked to see where I was when I posted the mountain and snow fence, they would've seen me in Wyoming and that is Elk Mountain.

Stayed the night at the Wagonhound Rest Area the other night. Pretty windy coming in from Nebraska, but I had the perfect wind load. 45,000 lbs, two feet off the deck, tarped, with side slopes.

Yesterday and today the winds were 40+ mph. This load of water is 44,500. My dog doesn't like Wagonhound RA when it's windy...it rocks the truck too much.

Usually I see on the GPS Tracker that you are 15 to 50 miles from me. Then, about two weeks ago while I was heading west, you were in Rock Port MO and I was down on the next on ramp. Tried sending a message to see if you wanted to meet up, but this website wouldn't work.

Oh well, one of these days maybe.

What a coincidence! I posted this topic when I had finished my shift in Sinclair, WY. A little West of Elk Mountain. My student just told me the wind picked up quite a bit as he headed East. Luckily we are pretty heavy.

Deputy Fowler put it around the land of the lady with the dog so they don't call him in the middle of the night about truck drivers turning around.

Good Ole Deputy Fowler!rofl-2.gif

He'd be pleased to know he is a celebrity now.

As far as prizes go, perhaps a "Get out of jail free" card will do you some good. It can be used to avoid spending time in Kearsey's infamous dungeonšŸ˜‰

EPU:

Electric Auxiliary Power Units

Electric APUs have started gaining acceptance. These electric APUs use battery packs instead of the diesel engine on traditional APUs as a source of power. The APU's battery pack is charged when the truck is in motion. When the truck is idle, the stored energy in the battery pack is then used to power an air conditioner, heater, and other devices
