You aren't a truck driver, those are trains dude. Never seen anything like that here in Japan.
Don't think the roads would allow it, too small.
＠Shredlife, when I read your posts in my head I hear the voice of Johnny Cash, like the way he talks in between tracks at a concert with an occasional plink of a guitar or a drum roll. Adds a lot of entertainment .

Makes tight spots a lot easier and has a better turn radius than a regular tractor trailer, plus you can disconnect the trailer and have (essentially) a straight truck. However, it's still closer to the total length of a regular one...yours look a lot longer than that. Whoa, those road conditions! Takes a lot to navigate a rig through that, I bet!

I used to track with him when I was a little girl and he taught me to fish. I'm a hell of a fisherman as a result, but don't fish anymore, not even catch and release. I'm a pretty good shot, too, but that could be genetics lol.
Anyway, the reason I mention that is because although my beliefs are different than someone elses, I respect their right to their choice (vegan vs hunter, for example). All that goes out the window and the rules change when someone does intentional, torturous harm to an animal or child. I'm right there with ya, just have yet to get my gun permit lol.
Sorry for going OT, but it is a small world. And, for the record, I have yet to see compelling enough evidence to prove that CheeseForSteeze is in fact, not a cyborg Just kidding, Cheese (if you happen to be on here) Take it as a compliment, as you seem to be rather intellectual.

I agree that he should rot in hell.
Side note/slight rant: So Saturday night I was at my local hill with a friend. We were in the rental shop; I was using their counter and Philips head to fix my friend's rental set up he picked up elsewhere (he told them he was regular when he's goofy, so I had to switch the bindings and set up a better stance and angles for him; they were old Flows and I've never used Flows so it was taking me awhile to figure them out and that damn top web didn't lift up!). Anyway, while we were in the shop, the news broke. A young kid working the rental counter said he was "so devastated, was such a Penn State/Joe Pa fan," he felt he "couldn't be at work." Yeah. So I pipe up with "Fuck him" "that fucker deserves to rot in hell" etc, etc. (I used to work in the trucking industry and can "swear like a trucker" when needed haha) I wasn't obnoxious but vocal. My friend was embarrassed I think. Wtf are people thinking?!
