My friend is a truck driver for a living. He spends more than 40 hours a week driving a rig from one region of the country to another. Most of those hours are spent cruising along on America’s highways, getting a taste of all different parts of the country. He is a fun person to talk to, always coming home with stories from life on the road. I guess it makes sense with the number of people moving on and off of roads, there are bound to be some interesting things. Sometimes I like to drive along and make up stories about where people in different vehicles are going and why. It’s a fun little way to pass the time.
Really, the highway is an incredible place. All different types of people and vehicles moving along to get where they need to go, all with different plans, responsibilities and agendas. With so much diversity in one place, you never really know what you’re going to see. The stories my friend brings home are always fun to listen to. There are definitely times where I just wish he would have gotten a video! Ya know, seeing is believing and its just so much more fun to actually see a story than to just hear about it.
Lucky for me there are a lot of videos out there of crazy things happening on highways. One driver, enjoying their usual commute, notices something a little strange. With so many different people and vehicles out there it’s no surprise that there is the occasional odd-ball, on the road. Check out this trailer stacked high with pallets. It’s moving along so smoothly, you’d never guess what is pulling it!!
I cannot imagine looking in my rear-view mirror and noticing that the entire trailer that I was towing is just gone! The driver of that truck is probably not having the best day every, but he really created some entertainment for other drivers on the road. Luckily it appears that no one got hurt!
