Got Axles?

Probably not the greatest photo but to me one of the amazing sights of Michigan trucking.  8-) Just had a moment to snap this pic of a group of dump trucks at a road construction project on I-69 around Imlay City on 6-1-09.

Awesome shot.  Man, I could be at the Mi. state line in about 4 hrs.  One of these days I have to get back up there.

Ok Charlie, this photo is not technically perfect. As punishment, you need to go check all those tires, and adjust the brakes.
I love this photo. I'm certain Railphotos.net would never accept a photo like this, but here at Hanks we love them anyway. The subject is awesome. Now, if only we had a video of them dumping all those loads.
Find the one thing in life that you don't do well, and then don't do that thing.
