Good grief! Glad it didn’t require tarps. How many straps?

My initial thought when I pulled in to see this, (pre loaded trailer), was, SERIOUSLY?!?!

I only had 1.5 hrs left on my 14, and knew I would never finish. So I informed my planner, dropped my MT, and bobtailed 2 miles down the road to a mom n pop. This allowed me to create a good game plan, and when I pulled back in, I hit the ground running. 18 straps, and 2 chains later, I pulled into our yard, to have it checked out, and replace a few questionable straps.

Bobtail:

"Bobtailing" means you are driving a tractor without a trailer attached.

You guys deal with all that, I'll stick with swinging my doors. I contemplated doing flatbed work but I would likely drive myself crazy always second guessing the way the load is secured. flatbedders are definitely a different breed.
