I thought I was going to slow down a bit.

My load next week is oversize!!!

I’ve read up and got my ducks in a row as well as permits.

I’m hauling a 114” piece for the last of a castle being built in a cemetary.

Wow! That's gonna be fun as hell!

That's pretty massive, too. How long is the entire vehicle from nose to tail?

I never thought about it or cared, but now I want my corpse to be in a castle. I'll get on the design now and I welcome suggestions.

They are building the castle on site. This is the 5th load of the pieces. This is only 1’ to wide. But dot is still strict on following the rules. I’ve learned more about oversize the last 2 days than I ever thought I would.

DOT:

Department Of Transportation

A department of the federal executive branch responsible for the national highways and for railroad and airline safety. It also manages Amtrak, the national railroad system, and the Coast Guard.

State and Federal DOT Officers are responsible for commercial vehicle enforcement. "The truck police" you could call them.

I just got here with the last load. FL DOT gave me specific routing on 3 roads that are not for trucks, much less oversized. At least I made it safely and no tickets!!
