This past Thursday I spoke again with owner-operator Jerry Boyd of Spencer, Tenn., long leased to Bennett Motor Express. That’s his 2016 Prostar left-most in the picture above, flanked by one bought around the same time by fellow hauler Carl Lawrence. The KW is Bob Hubbard’s, odd man out (though in, at once) in more ways than one on a U.S. military freight haul north from an Oak Harbor, Wash., installation to Alaska. Hubbard wasn’t with Lawrence and Boyd last they made this run, in July last year.
You’ll recall these plates on the front of Boyd’s International, which I wrote about after getting a look at Boyd’s rig at the location of Landmark International Trucks in Cookeville, Tenn., last month:
Turns out the opportunity to make the most of the plate registration fee did arise for Boyd, and he and Lawrence will be sharing photos from the run through B.C. and the Yukon territory via their Facebook pages, if you follow them. I thought I’d share a few of Boyd’s from the last run in summer 2017.
Enjoy, and stay safe out there this weekend if you’re hauling.
