Headed home from Ashland VA on 4-30-19. Hope you've all enjoyed the trip.


CAT Western Star 5700XE still asleep at the TA off I-95 Exit 89 in Ashland.



Nolt Carriers KW W900 from Ephrata PA at the TA at Exit 92.



V4U Logistics FL Cascadia MK II from Brampton ON at the Flying J in Carmel Church VA.



On Time Transport KW COE flatbed with VA plates at the Mr. Fuel in Ruther Glen VA.



Old KW farm truck sitting at a garage along US 301 in Bowling Green VA.



A rare sighting this far back east (at least for me) of a Brady Trucking Inc. Pete 579 from Vernal UT laid over at the Flying J in Carneys Point NJ.

The old KW farm truck is pretty cool along with the KW K100.

I'll second what Jim said, a very cool duo of KWs. :)
The CAT Western Star is very sharp, nice catch. 8)

Those old KW's are neat, glad to see they're still running although the W9 could use some work. The Western Star for CAT is def. my fave though, idk why it's so hard for me to find trucks hauling CAT genny's but I'm glad you got a shot of one.

Wow, that's a really unusual and cool catch. 8)
Funny how it's got an "E-Z-GO" golf cart plate on the front.

Very interesting truck indeed, that is quite cool, something not seen everyday, the wide cab for a tractor application is just rare!!

Yeah I noticed that too. ;D Appears to be the only truck in the fleet with that badge on it......might be the drivers handle. :-\ Quite a cool website too. 8)

Wow! You lucky SOB haha. First things first, great shot on that Mass. boat hauler. I caught a very similar setup in Boston back in 2016 but it was parked cab forward at a warehouse so I couldn't get a clean shot. Secondly, that Reliable Pete is just fantastic. Thirdly, your shot of the Hollis Pete beats my shot of the Hollis Pete, I saw it staged at Joint Base Andrews during the show there last Saturday. Took a shot of it but it had the whole trailer deck setup so it wasn't clean like yours is. Fourthly, that Bennett heavy hauler is nice. Fifthly, that IC COE with the National trailer is the kind of catch I'm always hoping to find. Sixthly, that W900 for United agent Corporate is also fantastic. Overall just fantastic shots Charlie.

Seventhly, that Shell truck is neat but it falls on the scale at "mildly interesting" compared to your other shots. It's a matter of personal taste though. And before you say it, I know you're joking lol.

The old Shell tanker is a cool shot, all the big bunks are quite nice too, quite the finish to a trip South, enjoyed it, glad you shared!
