         thanks Lee

the day after we had a really bad snowstorm I spent the day driving our Oshkosh,our tow dispatcher came out and operated the wrecker,I did a little bit of winching.The Oshkosh is a cool truck but it definitely is NOT a comfortable truck,it is cold rough and loud,but I wouldn't hesitate to run it again.





while picking up a coffee in Valleyview I seen another Oshkosh go by,it is a local truck from Valleyview,kind of cool seeing an Oshkosh while driving an Oshkosh

Man, that Oshkosh is an awesome rig! :o
I don't believe I've seen one in person before, but I sure would like to see one (and drive one!). ;D

Great catch on the Vanderveen Hay FLB (how did you mange that?) and the Micra along with that not so common 362E.

It must be near shocking to come sown here to +10 and back home  -23.

I really like the look of that 2 tone blue KW T800 pulling that lumber load, nice looking new Star right at the bottom!

Man, I really dig the oversized loads, those are really some serious loads!
The purple and black Pete and the Star at the bottom are my picks of the bunch though, very sharp. 8)

You always catch some of the neatest rigs out there there Rob, love all the heavy haulers. As for favorites, I really like that purple-and-black 389 b-train setup, it's nice to see some creativity in the paint jobs out there.

This is an OIL FIELD FLOAT.
I first heard of these 50 years ago from a high school buddy whose uncle was up in the North West Territories running out of Hay River.
A flat deck but no landing gear. There are rollers on the front and the trailer is lowered by a winch.
Am I correct about that Rob?

The black and purple 389 with the matching Super-B is really cool, great find on that one!

       You are right Rob this is an oil field float but a couple things. There are no rollers at the front. There is just a spot to hook the winch line onto. The winch truck is setup with ramps or possibly a roller so the trailer doesn’t hook coming on . Also the trailer probably has fold down dolly legs.
That Peterbilt 389 with the matching grain trailers is Mark Brandt from Manitoba. That is the same company as the 389 I posted in my last trip to Richmond. They have a few nicely setup combinations.
