Very good on the road pics, Rob! My favorites are the first three - especially the blue W900L - and also the heavy haul setup in the 4th pic. But all of 'em are nice!

Lots of wildfires, huh? Which part of Alberta would this be in?

North central Alberta I'm guessing.
The town of Slave Lake was evacuated, about 7000 residents, nearly half the town went up in flames.

Interesting serie. My favorites are the Pete and Kenworth in the second and third pics because of their traditional paint pattern.

Can't beat this. Petes, Kenworths and a coe. I've been watching on the news about the fires out west. There's a few people from around here that are in Slave Lake or were the last time I heard.

I guess the Rhett Butler T2000 would look better without ol' Rhett's mug on the side there, hehe. ;) Pretty darn sharp for a T2000 otherwise!
