More Winter Adventures

After a day off and picking up my peterbilt from Peterbilt who completed a MVI and full service to it, I loaded a couple of trailers onto a step deck and headed for Edmonton, Alberta.  I ran into some snow up on the Coquihalla summit and some icy road conditions on Cardeau Hill outside of Kamloops, BC.  The icy hill was interesting as I spun the tires off and on all the way up it.  After spending the night in Kamloops, I headed once again for Edmonton and drove by an accident (see photo) just outside of Avola, BC.  Black ice seemed to be the cause (other than speed of course).  Just before Blue River, BC on the north side of Messiter hill, I encountered some more black ice which slowed me down again.  In Edson, Alberta a pickup truck decided to cut me off and I had to hit my brakes hard which caused my load to shift.  Thank god for cross chains.  Spent the night in Acheson, Alberta for early morning delivery. Bye for now.
