Something Funny

I’m sure you have all seen all the crazy things drivers have to carry on flatbed trailers. Pools, bulldozers, helicopters, windmill blades, etc. I don’t think I could do that kind of driving or at least wouldn’t want to. Trying to throw on those huge tarps, always tightening all the chains or straps when you stop & not even mentioning when it’s 100 degrees outside or -10 degrees. I think it would be cool pulling one & being able to actually see your load, but that’s not for me. I like backing into a door & relaxing until they tell me they are done with me…..driving 500-650 miles a day is enough work. 
Anyway, I was backed in at this little truck stop in Iowa today taking my 30 minute break, when I saw this flatbed fixing to back in beside me. It was really a good looking truck, but I was looking all around for the “oversized load” banners & his escort cars & didn’t see any of that. Sure would have thought that he would have needed them because he was hauling a dump truck…..guess I should say “Tonka” dump truck. I thought it was so cool & wild that he thought of that. What are some crazy things you have seen on flatbeds? Til next time peeps…
