I haven't hauled anything weird. Had to drag a pallet of frozen rejected pizzas BACK to OH from upstate NY.

I worked in a truck stop when I was barely 18. I'll never forget the dude who scales "produce" but was talking about some sort of official escort.... I was confused. Apparently, cadavers are a big money item, and at the time we're sent with security escort. Or he was pulling my leg , 🤣

Have hauled 3 loads of chicken leg & thigh bones and carcasses from chicken processing plants in the Carolina’s & Mississippi to Protein Solutions in Joplin, MO. It ends up in pet food.

I don’t care for poultry or beef processing plants, but you gotta go where they send you.

Smallest High Value load was a single pallet of pharmaceuticals sitting in the front right corner of the trailer.

Be VERY CAREFUL discussing HV stuff. It could cost you your job.

I didn’t haul it, but was behind it on 95 going north through Maine.

Tried axle dump passes me and has an ungodly stench. He was flying, and when he was at least a mile ahead I was still gagging.

Got on the radio and asked what he was hauling, smelled like sh*t. He said that’s what it is, human sh*t.

A few weeks ago I hauled 46k lbs of blue moon and other various miller beers to be destroyed at liquid waste plant in Wisconsin. Very sad

Not always! Sometimes its heavy paper or carpet rolls! It's actually very wierd when I have a light load I'm so used to the 44k+ ones. I'm pulling 15k worth of smoker wood chips to eau claire and Mont Eagle felt like goin up an overpass this morning.

Ahh, good old millis.

Ive not had any weird loads, but when i was at millis, i had about ten boxes of floor tiles i took from tile shop in michigan to tile shop in indianapolis.

New job, the weirdest so far is 39,000 pounds of the scent beads they put in some laundry detergent. My trailer smelled amazing.

The route I do at May does Bud down south sometimes. I made their check in a contact named Buuuusch in my phone.

It’s nice seeing huge cube of 24 packs all perfectly packed and aligned on pallets.

They put a GPS tracker in there somewhere apparently. I park hometime against a fence against a pond. GL with getting that
