1979 Kenworth W900 Extended Hood
1979 Kenworth W900 extended hood, 3406a Caterpillar, 13 speed. Poky Feeders near Scott City, KS I was 19 in 1984 when I started driving this truck for Joe Barger of Barger Grain Co, based out of Wauneta, NE. There was no training, like most kids growing up on a farm in rural NE, I started hauling grain in from the harvest fields at a young age. And working with cattle was a daily chore, that helped prepared me for hauling grain and cattle, the rest I just had to pick up from doing and watching other drivers. Had many adventures in this truck, Made a little money, got in some trouble with the police, saw quite a bit of country and learned much!! Last I heard this truck was still operating out of Minnesota. donchristnerphotos.wordpress.com/trucking/
