An interesting way to start my day
« on: July 10, 2014, 03:42:23 AM »
Usually I take a day off about once a month to go truck spotting along  TCH. It's a 100 km trip. Yesterday morning  the preview for the day were 22-23 Celsius. It would be windy and cloudy but sun was due later in the morning. Up to now this year I had made it only once so I decided that it was the day to do it. As I was on the ramp to the main highway I saw a group of flashing lights traveling fast on the highway. In a few minutes I was overtaking them. It was a small convoy of Landstar heavy haulers and pilot car hauling  what seem to be sections of a crusher. I speed up  for a few km and found a safe place to take a few pics. As I was not satisfied with them,  I speed up again , got a better distance and made another try. My day was done but  I drove   another 70 km to St-Liboire and got about 650 more pics during my day.

Here is the few pics I kept of my convoy.

Neat catch! Looks like a CBI stationary electric grinder to me. They are manufactured in northern New Hampshire. Dave
