Truckin
« on: August 05, 2011, 03:40:51 PM »
I wonder if anyone on here shares the same passion for trucks and trains as I do.  All my pictures from a trip in VA to visit some friends that own a food distribution company. I know I didn't take many but if anyone has truck pictures they would like to share they are more than welcome to post!

I drove for 19 years.  I haven't driven for over 8 years now.  I still miss it some times.

This is the second to the last truck I drove for a living. (and my favorite of the many I drove  :clap: )

Seattle Washington.


This is the trailer I normally pulled.
Olancha California.


Sorry for the poor quality images.  Digital cameras were out only about 1 year and cost an arm and a leg so I couldn't afford one at the time.  The camera I was using was new and I didn't know it had problems untill after the film was developed.

Route 63 is the main road through my college town. they had to build pedestrian tunnels under the roads to the dorms because so many trucks use the road. Most of the truckers are daily/weekly drivers, and are pretty friendly. I've yet to get shown the bird while doing the infamous "honk the horn" gesture!

My family owns our own trucking company.  If I hadn't got on with the railroad I probably would be slammin' gears for a living...

We have since picked up a Pete 379 but I can't find any pics.  Might have to go snipe a few next time I'm back home.
