Reefer Truckin'
« on: January 24, 2016, 07:06:33 PM »
Well, I'm happy with my job again, haha. Hooked up to the reefer and took some ice cream from Salt Lake City to Puyallup, Washington, reloaded potatoes out of Pasco going to Carrollton, Texas, and reloaded groceries in Arlington coming back to Clearfield, Utah. It's all been a relaxed schedule and I'm pretty much working four days a week with weekends at home. Just what I like this time of year! Even got a truck wash before I even loaded the first load and what's even better is the other driver likes the belt trailer, so he can keep it! I enjoyed running the backroads down to Dallas...the only port of entry I went through that whole week was westbound at San Jon, New Mexico and I got a level two inspection (passed), haha. Friday I actually did some local belly dumping since I was home early Thursday, might take a load of salt in them tomorrow as well, since I don't have a reefer load until Tuesday. So nice to have something new to do and to get out a ways from home and be able to keep the truck half way clean! ...and the people that are loading me are GREAT to work with. 8)
Actually took this picture when I took a break from the belt trailer for a day to haul local salt on New Year's Eve.

Finally got the red lights hooked up under my sleeper, shining on my tanks.

Before wash.

After wash.


Hopefully the last picture I take with the belt trailer this winter, haha.

The fourth photo down. The scenery looks very familiar. Would that happen to be the ute mountain in the distance?

The pictures are having trouble loading on my screen, but if we're talking about the same one, I'm pretty sure that's near the junction of US491 and US160 near the New Mexico and Colorado border.

Great shots, nice to see some clean and shiny iron out there...working.

Question: what do they unload out of reefers using the tilt pad?? Floor load Potatoes???

I've only seen hog fuel/wood chip trailers unload that way.

Argueing with a trucker is like wrestleing with a pig in the mud.
After a while you realize the pig is enjoying it.

That's what I figured! My neck of the woods!

Cool, you caught ol' Denton Schoenbaum in his sharp 362! :)  Oh, and a certain 389 looks right at home in front of the reefer. ;)

Great bunch of pics. The 359 cowhauler must've been in NM or TX. Also San Jon is easy to get around if you don't want to deal with them anymore

Cool shots, looks good all cleaned up!  Hard to find clean rigs this time of year.  8)

Yup, potatoes. I had mine on pallets though.

Thank you! It seems more fitting for that trailer than Elvira did, haha.

I don't know how some guys do it, but I see some that are pressed out good enough for a show while it's snowing, haha.

I believe I saw it on 287 in Texas.

Well, I had a slow week, but that's okay. All I got was a load to Denver and back. Left Tuesday from Cache Valley, so I went out over Logan Canyon and turned at Sage Creek Junction to go down through Randolph and hit I-80 in Evanston. Unloaded and reloaded Wednesday morning, went to Johnson's Corner and got fuel and breakfast, then headed into Clearfield, Utah for same-day delivery and was home that night. Had great weather the whole trip, great scenery, got to see the big dragline shovel at Black Butte in Wyoming, lots of deer, elk, and antelope to watch along the way...just had a great time. Thursday I was offered a flatbed load to Winnemucca, Nevada, but I turned it down because the reefer broker said he'd load me Friday, but he didn't, haha. However, I've been dispatched a load of ice cream for Erlanger, Kentucky that I load tomorrow! That's gonna add some states I've never been to!

Needs some rubbing.

Love the colors in the sky, the camera never seems to capture it though.
