Never knew how heavy a few oranges were , almost destroyed my lil 6x10 trailer hauling a few loads back to the shop . But it sure does smell good up there ..... for now until the rain lets up and the flippin temp gets above 34

I don't see how you find that news exciting.... Maybe it's just me but trucks rolling over scares the hell out of me.

Defenders fired ALL of their ammo in the next 60 seconds. Me? Laying in a hole with a thermos of coffee, listening. Yeah, it WILL spook you.
Cassettes? Boom boxes? Tapes? Sounds like a hundred years ago or perhaps the past century. I don't doubt it given your input here but damn! I would like to know the details!

Matter of fact, it WAS last century!

Wait til you have grandkids- and they climb into your lap, and ask "Grandpa, did you have dinosaurs in the 1900's?"

By exciting , i was being very sarcastic . In reality we love big wrecks , they bring in big big money , I myself am fixin to write a rather heafty bill for them for the use of my trucks , trailers , help and dingo , not to mention it was cold and snotty all day , thats worth about 500.00 right there . But just to be proper , we only like them when people dont get hurt . And I may charge hazmat for the few hundred gallons of diesel fuel im going to pull out today , only problem is , i have to put it in my trucks so its not a liability sitting around Will be nice since diesel is right at 4.00 a gallon right now , but regular is 3.25 WTF!!!

Yeah those prices should be the other way around, but diesel has had such a bum rep and so much legislation has just eaten it up.

Dodge now makes a uria set up, something having to do with emissions. Putting piss in fuel. Great.

I will never forget when the beer truck turned over in the local highway S-curve, the one right beside the public housing project. The first people there did check on the driver before beginning the unloading process; the driver wasn't badly injured but didn't want to be moved IIRC. By the time the city, county, and highway patrols and police had arrived, the intact beer had been removed from the scene.

Lets see, we have had a walmart refer truck roll over , family dollar truck run thru a restaurant , smithfields bbq truck roll over , mulch truck , gravel trucks... just a few that benefited in more ways than one . The wally world truck was the best , hell we lived off that stuff for almost a year . Next best was the dollar general but i gave all of the diapers away .............. just before we found out we were having twins . No beer trucks yet but then again im not a beer drinker.
Now a cigarette truck would be great but im sure dept of ag would be on top of that one or the dept of rev
