Forgotten Photos

Round round get around I get around. Those lyrics sum up this past summer and fall for me with travel to the ATHS national show, a inlaw visit to the NY/NJ area, a visit to Richmond, VA, various trucks shows through out NY and PA area and finally another trip back down to Reston, VA. To visit all these fantastic locations I left my humble home via Interstate I-81. Sometimes the driving involved can be absolute drudgery especially when you’re not to excited about the destination but their is a silver lining to every cloud in the form of truck spotting. Now I can tell you this. I passed more cool trucks and construction sites than I took photos of but that is okay because using a camera while driving is not cool. Just ask McGruff the crime dog. I would have liked to show you the line of Mack and Autocar dump trucks working on bridge reconstruction outside of Wilks-Barre, PA. Or the complete demotion and reconstruction of I-81 somewhere south of…somewhere. I really don’t know where it was taking place but it’s in Pennsylvania. Construction season never ends in Pennsylvania. And what about a White Road Boss dump truck loaded to the brim screaming up one of those mountain cuts outside of Scranton? Like I said, I missed more than I caught but on a few occasion I did find myself in the passenger seat and in the right frame of mind to snap a photo or two.

Back in July I passed this Terex crane while winding through the hills outside of Cortland, NY. It wasn’t until months later when I looked back at the photo that I realized it was a Moultons Towing rig, a company often seen on this site.

A little further south it was time to stop for a break. This driver from A-Verdi had the same idea.

Kenworth Semi Truck

Somewhere outside of Harrisburg I passed this Kenworth T-880 pulling a Moxy haul truck.

Coming back home through PA coal country, that stretch of 81 that I level with the sky, I passed this silo heading south. I’m sure someone out there can place this location based on the partial company name on the truck and that MMGCO water tower.

I encountered this truck shortly after getting back on I-81 after an unscheduled scenic detour through PA Stage game lands 211 when my GPS felt the need to find a quicker route. I don’t think it was quicker but it was a beautiful fall day so the stress level didn’t rise that quickly. I did pass by this Sub Mack on the outskirts of Harrisburg. I wonder if franchises are available?
