Please take some pictures and share them. I enjoy seeing the odd things you haul.

The problems we face today exist because the people who work for a living are outnumbered by the people who vote for a living.

The government can only "give" someone what they first take from another.

You have no idea of the paperwork , back round checks and Q and A involved, I feel violated but on the other hand it will be honor to move Aircraft that there my be only one of. this has been years in the making and I never thought back then we would ever get here, maybe the Mack owners (volvo) will appreciate a Mack moving some of Americas jewels.

NO pics per Smithsonian but will be on their website, we use double drop stretch trailers with 62 feet in the well when opened, puts me out at 105' to 107' with no rear steer, really need to pay attention when making corners and watch for rises in road or you will grind to a stop for lack of clearance, we finish this and head to Savannah GA. to load oil tanks going to Westwego LA.  15'5" wide 16'6" high at 105 total length, more fun. been using my old 98 CH with 240 wheelbase, just hit 190k miles, might wear out before I die.

They are sending some I think I can put them up, long as it is not used for business, I did get some pictures pulling out, got the Capital building on my left and the Washington Monument was  kinda to the right, see if I can get posted, work with some really great people. VA. State Patrol did fantastic job, super nice and professional, funny how the good comes out when on projects like this, meet the best people.

As serious as the State Patrol was you would have thought so, they were all business, not a thing went around me, I asked if they wanted me to move right, they said no tonight the whole road is yours, lot of real estate when you are on 395/495 and 66 in VA. and your by yourself.
