Pictures of the Week

It's been raining most of the week, but I got a few snapshots in between storms. Here's some old units sitting in the field. These are all on rt.29, north of Amherst, Va. where I went to look at that Case tractor for Rob. Don't know if they're for sale or anything else about them really.

I took a load of cinder block mats to Brockport, Pa. to the Whetstone Dam project. Turned off rt. 153 onto a dirt road...

passed Cookie Joe's, which was apparently established in 2005. All I saw was this sign propped on a plastic chair.

My directions said unload after you passed a stand of big pine trees, this must be them. That other truck getting unloaded down there was a clue too.

Saw this well dressed driver at the Sheetz at exit 97 on 80. He might be wearing shorts and sandals, but he's got the tuxedo T-shirt thing going on.

I saw a well dressed girl in a car too.

Then I saw another girl in another car. I only took a picture because she had a KW emblem in her lap at first, must be a KW fan I guess.

Traffic lined up creeping up Afton Mtn. about 10 mph. The right lane was closed up ahead for construction.

They're putting up avalanche walls.

Looks pretty nice on the west side of the mountain, it was rainy all the way from Richmond to the top of the hill, as seen in the rear view mirror.

Traffic was pretty heavy on 64 and 81 yesterday, glad i'm not out there today.

post-1374-0-05575300-1369411195_thumb.jp

...until I went 64 west from Lexington, then it wasn't bad. This is from North Mtn, heading west.

post-1374-0-52491500-1369411363_thumb.jp

This is going down the other side of North Mtn, looking towards West Virginia.

I took a small mill roll to Milton, W.V. This big one I brought back wouldn't fit in the steel rack it was in, so I had to set up coil racks to put it in.

Saw this girl walking down 501 on the way home. She should really get some sensible shoes if she does a lot of walking. I saw a broke down car about a half mile before I saw her, but I didn't get a picture of it.

Tom,

Nice pics as always. Sorry I missed your call the other night. Have a good weekend.

It was kind of late, I went up 99 to 350 to 80 going to Brockport, then went to Alliance and loaded firebrick and came through Canton on the way back.

Thanks again for the report.

The scenery is beautiful, the girls are nice.

I'd like to meet one of the appearance of the last if she's real KW fan. Or better :mack1:

How slow did you follow along that curve at Chimney Corners?

It's posted as a 15mph. curve, I just ease around it. You can look out the passenger window from about where this picture was taken and see the road below. If anybody's coming the other way I just stop until they get around the curve. It drops away pretty steep too and the tires on the front axle of the trailer will be completely off the ground coming around it. I've been around it with a 53' van with the tandems slid forward a good bit and drug the rear bumper on the pavement all the way around it.

I put a little video of it on youtube a few years ago, but I was headed west then, still driving the Peterbilt.

My youngest son went to see Rush a while ago, and this is some of his photoshop work...totally different than my poorly photochopped pictures. That's my grand son on stage with them.

You mean NED Beatty...Warren doesnt squeel!

Yes thanks. It has been a long time since seeing that movie. I bet Warren would squeel if he got gigged like Ned did. I wonder if the Boy Scouts would consider this a good movie to watch before turning in at night?

Yeah, my son is going to see ZZ Top too, another one of my favorite bands. I't's kinda nice that he likes classic rock instead what they call music now.

Good to see the Blackwell Photoshop legacy will be kept alive by future generations. What kind of car did the girl on 501 have? I'd date her if she has a cool car. We could get together the next time I need to run the Ohio Turnpike.

Did you camp out at the Kirby rest area on I-79 (mm5) in PA at all last week? I went by there one night and saw a hideous KW anteater truck that looked similar to yours hooked to a flatbed. I couldn't read the name because it was night time and the sun went down and it was dark which made it difficult to see with minimal lighting.

No, I usually go past the rest area and sleep on the ramp at the Kirby exit. Nice and quiet unless someone backs into you. But no, I didn't stop there at all last week.
