Well, I'll take a few minutes to post a few pics from my drive today before heading for bed. I just came from the Grand Ole Opry, which is always a lot of fun, and tomorrow I'll be heading to the airport to get a different rental car before heading up to Louisville for MATS.
Btw, thanks for all the comments on my previous posts! I sure appreciate it. I'll try to reply better when I get to Louisville.
This classy short hood 379 was parked at the motel across the road from mine in Sikeston when I got out to my car this morning. It is for Nodaway Valley out of Villisca, Iowa.
I found a propane hauling company called Eagle Valley in Shawneetown, IL, right on the Ohio River, and managed to get pics of two of their trucks. First, a classy W900L...
...and then an even classier 389!
SBFA Freightliner COE in Henderson, KY. It had markings for Tri-State Heavy Duty Towing & Recovery, Henderson, KY.
And here's a few on the road shots, first from I-57 between Sikeston, MO and Marion, IL.
First, a shiny 386 for Fort Transfer Co. out of Morton, IL.
New equipment for Pace Air Freight out of Plainfield, IN - a Pete 587.
Not quite as new...
FL COE pulling for J.B. Hunt.
New ATS Coronado.
Classy W900L for Schuler Trucking out of Janesville, WI.
Slightly rough looking, unknown Harley Davidson LoneStar.

Unknown K100E with an oversize load.
These last ones are from the Tennessee welcome center along I-24 southbound, at the KY/TN line. I didn't have time to spend more than 15 minutes here as I had the Grand Ole Opry to make here in Nashville, but this particular welcome center was perfect for truck pics; it had benches overlooking the Interstate, and quite heavy truck traffic.
First, a classy big bunk Western Star leased to Mercer.
Dark Star Transportation Co 386 out of Knoxville, TN.
Sharp T660 for TRCC Transport out of Dalton, GA.
Finally, a new Pete 587 for Titan Transfer out of Shelbyville, TN.
