Pictures of the Week

I thought i'd roast a giant rack for Christmas, but I might have to roast a turkey instead since I haven't found any giant racks. I will not be smoking a turkey, that's for sure. However, the thought did cross my mind to experiment by cutting my turkey in half, and cooking one half in the oven and the other half on the grill.

Neat road scenaries, and the mountain views too.

Big Mack trucks pics are always welcome. And Santa assistents' too.

Not nice news in Gladys this time. Seems you better start thinking on getting a fire proof house. I mean in addition to the fire-proof shed.

The only thing that is not almost clear to me is that red one with Mercedes-Benz cab and the drum of unknown application.

Do people use to call them as Freightshaker of some model?

Y'all might be able to use these

 

Hat,

This makes me think that some people might have troubles carrying loads.

And at the same time have much more troubles of having too many of potential helpers on that matter.

 

And as for me I might get a trouble choosing in which category I'd prefere to be myself.

I took a load of pipes to Mountain Lake Park, Md. and when I got unloaded Monday morning I noticed that the pipe unloader people were out of New Alexandria, Pa.

I saw a couple of big Mack trucks there too. I got unloaded right behind Sisler Lumber, and the R model log truck looked like it was probably the sharpest looking log truck in the United States at one time.

Nice view from the top- I think you can see Green dash's house from here. There was even a big Mack truck coming up the hill.

Vlad, the red truck is indeed a freightliner, with a water tank for dust control. Notice the spray nozzles on front and rear bumpers.

OD when I was hauling cars out  of Pittsburgh we used to call the Oakland Md, Deep Creek area our winter resort! Lost my brakes on highway 160  near  Berlin pa on my way to Cumberland md.If you've never been on it don't! About 10 percent I'm guessing!

I ran 160 from Berlin to Cumberland once. I was still driving the Peterbilt,

and before I got to the top of the mountain a red light came on on the the dash- high temperature in the drive axle. Then another red light came on- high temperature in the other drive axle! I'd never seen that before, and never seen it since. I had them check both rears when I got in to make sure they were full of grease, which they were, but no doubt, that's a helluva hill right there!

It is a "pisser" OD, I was driving a single axle F750 gas burner and a single axle bankhead trl 5 big cars and pickups and a pinto on the headramp ! Blew a brake diaphragm on the trailer, no maxis! Skipped three whole gears on a 5 and a deuce let out the clutch and the tach went around twice! 10000 rpm on a 391, redlined at 5! Wasn't slowing enough so I "put it up on the hillside"  all the wheels on the right side left the ground, and my wallet on the dash went out the drivers window and ended up on the pavement! It went back down in slow motion and a pine tree branch came in the passenger window and was against my cheek! Didn't put a scratch on a car or on the rig! A B model wrecker came up from Cumberland and towed me to a garage in Cumberland ! They replaced the diaphragm and I took a motel. The next day I did my drop in Cumberland and went 20 or so miles and " swallowed a valve! No surprise! They brought me another tractor and towed the 750 back to Pittsburgh. So a couple of years later Nu Car Carriers bought AT I  and we all got brand new Louisville tractors and 10 car Ronald McDonald Cotrell trailers. Five axle rigs with maxis, 290 Cummins 10sp r.r. I get a load going to Cumberland, only three pintos left on the trl for Cumberland, no problem right? Wrong! I've got 8500 lbs on the trl, and by the time I get down by rte 36 my brakes are smoking! It's been a long time but I don't think I ever got to the high side! On the plus side I can't think of a prettier place to die! I found out  later that several drivers have died on that road!
