Oversize load delivered to Nevada. Made it to Cedar City UT on the way home before running out of HOS. Can't wait to get this trailer back to KY and pick up the check!

Depends on the load. This one was 18 wide, 13'7" tall, and GVWR was 133,592 pounds, 112 feet long, 21 axles, 4 escort vehicles, 4 security vehicles, and crossed way to many state lines. No fun. I'd rather be in Moab. Good pay, so no Moab. Anyone else ever take 9 days of vacation and go back to work?

Good thing I have access to this big ol' Mack. My Freightliner couldn't have hauled this load.

Without pics as proof, it never happened!! View attachment 15201 View attachment 15202
Are you always so rude? I don't do pics for good reasons I've posted a dozen times. If you don't like it, get over it.

EDIT: The government escorts held all our personal electronics while we were on the road for security reasons, which is why I haven't posted for a few days. I really didn't miss the smart asses and personal attacks. It was a nice break and maybe I'll just go right back to not missing the smart asses and personal attacks because about the only thing I'm sure about is I'm sick of the shit.

I think he was kidding...
You got that right, Big T .... hence the chosen smileys.

Also I was actually interested to see the rig and load - I'm no trucker but have watched a good number of YouTube clips with some ingenious manoeuvring of these big loads purely because I find it fascinating. No personal attack, Qwerty (what would be the point anyway - I don't know you). Also haven't read enough of your posts to to know that you don't include pics, - a pity, I would have appreciated seeing what the rig looked like, but I'm sure you have your reasons.

So, although taken 'out of context' while there was really no intention to be offensive and because I'm not given to rudeness, accept my apology and put it behind us. ;)

Vacation? With pay? Sounds like some Commie plot to me. Being paid and not working
equates to either being on welfare, disability or a government employee eh? One of the perks
of being self employed is not having to worry about vacations. No work means no pay.

So what kind of Mack do you have access too? Sounds like a real puller. I lived in down town los angeles for a little bit, close by a trucker stop and would always see really nice Peterbilt's 379's. My personal favoraite.

Mud Dog, to be very frank, and very forthright with you, there is NO reason for you to apologize for what you said. Everyone else that reads that KNOWS it was meant in jest, and 1000 other people have used that same phrase on this forum, and on 1000 other forums, without receiving a bad reply for it.
Thanks Mike, I fully understand that but opted for the 'high road'.

If you dish it out, you must be able to take it in return!! (I can take it on the chin if needs be.) ;)

I got home from Moab, and the first phone call I got was to move an 18 foot wide tank. I will be working on City, County, and State permits beginning tomorrow. I will also have to coordinate with the California Highway Patrol for the road escort. It will also require a front and rear pilot car on my part. A crane to load, and a crane to unload. Lots of ducks to get into a row. Will do pics when I do It.

I'm somewhat familiar with that, I work for the Texas Department of Transportation and have done traffic control for people hauling SWD tanks.
