Back in Black
I’ve been working hard for the last few months with a couple of weeks off in September but that is all. Mostly I’ve been hauling 40′ pipe from Vancouver to Fort McMurray, Alberta. The weight of the loads has been 60,900 lbs. Just under my max for my truck. I’ll be hauling drill rig casing to Edmonton shortly after the last load of pipe to McMurray is done. My truck has been running good (knock wood) however today I noticed that my engine fan was acting up so I by passed the air valve until I can fix it. Will have to hook it up again for every load of course so as not to overheat the engine when hauling freight. Seen a couple of accidents in the last two months, one where a cattle hauler flipped over on his side (see photos) while negotiating an off ramp a little too fast outside of Edmonton, A.B. and the other today between Little Fort, B.C. and Clearwater, B.C. where a driver went for a swim (see photos) in the Thompson River. Well thats all for now.
