Not Just Your Basic 18 Wheeler

Here's another new semi-regular feature. We'll call it, um...... Dashboard Highlights! Images from the driver's or passenger's seat of the 'Express as we travel around the country.

I encountered this rolling roadblock somewhere between Effingham, IL and St. Louis, on I70. As best as I can determine, this is a "74-Wheeler", and it was really heavy. The state trooper held up traffic as the oversize load took each overpass alone... and at no more than 5mph. Guess how long the backup was?

I don't know, because I was close to the front, but the radio chatter was not fit for family listening.

More to come...
