I've made the misery turn,brought 2 coils from Brookfield back to Roanoke,then went to Moneta and loaded treated lumber to Butler,Pa. then to Brookfield and back to Roanoke again.Got that off last night and came home,haven't called headquarters yet to see what's in store for today.

Found a couple more pictures of oversize loads I pulled,one's on a pole trailer,the other is on a jeep,or joe dog as we called it,with a steerable dolly under the rear.We had to use the joe dog because the girder was so heavy. You always had to be careful of the front overhang with the joe dog-when you turned the front of the beam would be way over,and you could knock down a sign or pole if you weren't.These loads went from Lynchburg to Ashland,Va,just north of Richmond on I-95 .

I didn't take a lot of pictures then,now I take pictures all the time,mainly because my "adventures" are so boring I try to add pictures for entertainment. I used to subscribe to a certain magazine and never read the articles,just looked at the pictures :rolleyes:

More good pictures, Thanks.

The Freightliner is very similar to our '96 model.

I like that truck with the mid-roof bunk and longer hood.

Jim ordered the truck new, specifically for heavy work, and it only has 300,000

original miles, so we keep it. It's like an old shoe for him.

Cat 3406E w/ an 18 spd. deep reduction Fuller and two speed rears, 48k axles on air.

Heavy frame specs and heavy front axle, and an auxiliary steerable lift axle.

It was designed to pull 300,000 lbs. and still be comfortable on the highway with

lighter loads.

If I could figure how to get film photos into the computer, I could send some pics

of different loads.

Paul:

Scan them. If you don't have a scanner, send the photos to me and I'll scan them and return them to you along with a CD with the scanned photos on it.

Regards,

John

I didn't like the looks of the mid roofs at first,but after I got that one I liked it.Drove a Freightliner classic before that,and the mid roof was just tall enough to stand up in,with lots of space to put stuff. This one had a 435 cat,but Larry had it turned up to a 475 for me,10 speed rockwell,3.90 rears. Some of those girders weighed 90,000+ lbs.

I've got a scanner that works with windows 98,don't know what else. It wouldn't work with vista because you can't get a driver for it,so I got a new printer,scanner,copier. You can have it if you want it,it works great,but it would probably cost as much to ship it as a new scanner costs at the Wal-Mart store.

Scanners are nice,you can scan all your old pictures and store 'em on your pc,put them on a photo disc,or whatever. I scanned that "Cannonball" picture out of a hardcover book. Also,if you have rare family pictures,say for instance the only knowm photo of great-great grandpa Elliot,or maybe cousin Judy in a 2 piece you can scan them and give everybody a copy.
