This middle section of a 300-foot-tall windmill tower was sent in by reader Paul Goldstein. It was hauled from San Diego, Calif., to Jawbone Canyon by the 2009 Peterbilt 367, powered by a 600-hp Cummins with an 18-speed transmission and two-speed rears. Load weight: 106,000 lbs.

This one of Jerry Hawley’s recent loads he says shows “quite a variety.” Commendations might well be in order for getting it all strapped down…

Darrell Hendrix sent in this pic — of the “135-ft. long vessel” hauled. Nice work!

Voice1: Breaker 1 – 9, any of you drivers looking for a dog? 

[Silence, count 1, 2, 3, 4, 5…]

Voice2: Hey what’d the driver say?

Voice3: Sounded like he’s got himself a doll. 

Voice2: That’s what I thought I heard. 

Voice4: I think that’s D – O – G as in “dog,” driver.

Voice3: Anybody else hear “dog?”

Voice5 (female): What  kind of dog? 

Voice3: Got no room for it myself. 

Voice2: Driver, come on. What kind of dog are we talking about? 

Voice5 (female): Thank you, driver. What kind of dog? 

Voice6: I think he ought to take his radio and throw it out the window. 

He may have. As long as I was in range, he was never heard from again… strives to maintain an open forum for reader opinions. Click here to read our comment policy.
