On the road in western Montana
« on: November 05, 2007, 12:43:49 PM »
Well, on the road in Montana west of Bozeman, anyway. Found some interesting trucks while tooling along I-90 there as well... Same procedure as last "On the road" series.  :roll: :wink:

  • Sharp Mack Rawhide
  • Nice Pete 386
  • Two axle Pete 362 for King Koil
  • One of those strange looking Rocky Mtn double woodchip deals, pulled by a SBFA Pete


  • Slightly blurry pic of a slightly sharp Mayflower big bunk W900L
  • Bridgestone/Firestone T800
  • Very sharp 379 bull hauler for CT
  • Sharp W900L with flatbed



  • Nice FL Coronado with flatbed
  • Slightly blurry pic of an interesting FL Argosy boat hauler
  • Older W900B caught along US-93 on the way up to the Nat'l Bison Range
  • Bekins Argosy havong just exited I-90 in Missoula, MT


  • Sharp Overland 379 caught from the frontage road close to Three Forks, MT
  • Nice 359 caught from the parking lot at the Grant-Kohrs Ranch in Deer Lodge, MT
  • Very sharp KW along US-12 close to Avon, MT
  • KW T800 woodchip hauler for Craig Schekla out of Sheridan, WY

That mayflower Kenworth is nice I spotted it about 4 months ago at the corning, CA truckstop. It looks a little dirty there but trust me its one of the nicest trucks I have ever seen

Cool. 8-) I will forgive it being dirty, though, there had been some rather lousy weather in the area east of where we were at, and he probably came through there on his way west on I-90...  :roll:

I see you were in Deer Lodge, did we make it to the Prison this time around?

Excellent pictures, thanks for sharing.

Thanks, Nate! Yes, we went through Deer Lodge, but as I had been to the prison before, and my mother was more interested in the Grant-Kohrs Ranch, which is a National Historic Site now, we did the Ranch and saved the prison for another time. I did, however, find a selection of old trucks directly behind the prison, across a creek or river there, which I will post pictures of in a while.  :wink:

They had the most horrid billboard next the road into Deer Lodge, trying to scare kids from using meth; it showed a young girl who had used meth and whose mouth was one big open sore, and most of her teeth were out, and it said, "You won't have to worry about white teeth ever again" or something like that, I couldn't get that awful picture out of my mind for the rest of the trip.  :-(

Ah yes, the Historic site, well the last time I was in the Prison, in the nice little car museum, there was a 1929 or so White truck that had been converted into a motor home in the 40's the sign said. I enjoyed that very much. That was I want to say 2001 or 2002, my memory is horrible.

Yes, I remember this old motor home, it was there when I went through the car museum in '05 as well, they actually had a themed exhibit there at the time, showing more old motor homes, which was very cool. I also went through the museum back in '93, on my first trip to the US, and at that time, it was called the Towe Ford Museum, and had only Fords in it.

I like the Rawhide and the 362e.

I like the light blue W900L with the flatbed and the black Pete 386.

Jan!  How do you not recognize a Bill & Deb Harrison Reefer?


I can't be sure but I think this one is a Ranger Boats rig.

This was in 2007, I bet I hadn't heard of Bill and Deb at that point. :)

Ok.  I had thought you mentioned that you first ran into this outfit when you went to school in MT.

It is possible I may have, but if I had, I most likely at least didn't recognize them on the road. I don't really recall if I did know them or not - I have problems remembering what I did an hour ago occasionally. :D
