Popular Post vision386 Posted April 20, 2013 Popular Post Share Posted April 20, 2013 i had one bad experience with the Harbor tunnel in a truck,back when i started at Atlas Van Lines,we had four single axle F-models,all identical specs.237,5 speeds etc.that were sold and being replaced with White Road Commanders,3 were sold to COVAN moving systems down in GA, but our branch office in Mannassas,VA wanted one for a "yard dog" and me being new volunteered to drive it down from Jersey (bobtail) and bring back a KW cabover that had been re-posessed from an Owner-Operator. Well,trip did'nt start out bad,till i got to Baltimore and the tunnel,i hit a pothole so hard just before entering the tube, that the passenger side door popped open! and of course they were working on the tunnel,so it was two-way traffic in the tube! i could'nt stop (safely) could'nt see shit! on the right side with the door open,and mirror screwed up,so i had no idea how close i was to the side of the tunnel wall! lucliky i got through all right,only needed a change of shorts! came out the other side,got stopped,and shut/strapped the door closed,and was on my way.Gotta say it scared the living shit outta me at the time,i still don't like going through that tunnel,i try and run 50/301 whenever possible...................................Mark 3 Quote Mack Truck literate.
