August  01 2012

Took this one today under a cloudy sky. Lot of clouds lately but no rain for quite a few weeks now.  Cargo L'Islet is a small carrier hauling mostly forest products. He is based in L'Islet County, southwest of Quebec City.

Nice shot Charlie. Who was that guy who drove for HC; Dave (somebody). I wonder if he is still there and if that was him?
He joined our Forum a few years ago but never really participated.

Thanks Rob. ;) It was amazing how all the traffic cleared out and left the KW all by its lonesome for a shot. ;D Usually the pic i really want is surrounded by 4 wheelers or trucks. >:(

That was Dave Sweetman who i believe still blogs for LandLine mag IIRC. Dave has a KW T660 big bunk........i caught him at Bordentown a couple of years ago and his ride is on HTP in my collection. :)

Took this one today at my local spot along Highways 10-55 between Sherbrooke & Magog Qc. Truck belong to E.B.D. Enterprise from Winnipeg MB. Maybe  a kind of show truck for this carrier since truck is quite different from  the ohers trucks in this fleet.

Seem this summer that every time I go to my local spot I catch a new COE truck. It was true today again with this FLB I see for the first time. Truck seem to belong to a small carrier from Beauce County.  I should  have more information about it at the St-Joseph Truck Show two weeks from now.

Still taken on the 24th of August, it is now the 25th while posting but earlier caught this Vedder Peterbilt dumping Woodchips in Pt Kells. Too bad it wasn't daylight.

Saturday August 25, 2012.

A Volvo from Precision Truck Lines turns from Shawson Drive onto southbound Dixie Road in Mississauga; the route to The 401. It probably weighed and fueled at the Husky TS.
(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v284/bluejaysfan/Volvos/precisionvolvo.jpg)

Whenever I see a unit from Precision I wonder what happened to our former member SNAFU. He had a Peterbilt daycab that he ran with Precision all over the country. I haven't seen his Pete around for several years. I've seen an older Freightliner condo running with the word "SNAFU" on the luggage compartment door. I think to myself..."Nah" He didn't want the Speed Limiters but I can't see him driving something like that in exchange.

On the last day of August - 8-31-12; at about 19:15 hrs.

The Friday evening traffic on Highway 401 west of Mississauga is heavy but moving along at the limit.
A Kenworth from Transport Group Robert with a Smurfit-MBI trailer heads west west while a Penner unit heads east.
