! Had one where the paperwork was a blank paper with "Classified" stamped across it. Load was pad locked and sealed. As I took off I knew it was a very light load (ie felt empty). I did not cross a scale, was told to just pass by they knew I was coming.
When I got to the base they escorted me to a warehouse and had me back up to the doors. I started to get out and they made me get back in. They put garbage bags over the mirrors and told me to watch the SGT. in front of the truck for directions. I backed into the building with the guy directing me for any corrections. They stopped me with the cab just poking through the doors which were pulled up against the side of the cab just behind the doors. About 10 minutes later they slid the doors out about a foot and guided me back out.
They then had me get out and check the trailer
was empty before closing it and placing a seal on the trailer
. At the gate they checked the seal # then removed it, checked inside the trailer
and sent me on my way!
I did ask the Colonel that was there at the warehouse about the size of the load and he said all he could tell me is it was a crate 3'x3'x2.5' and weighed less than 30 pounds!
Delivered a load for CBI to Oklahoma. Out in the middle of nowhere! Went to where I was directed to and was told to wait for someone to contact me.
While I sat there I saw a bulldozer coming over the rise about a mile out in the field. When he go to me he tells me to pull into the fielsd and he would hook up to help pull me to the job site.I saw the cat was caked full of mud.
I told him that there was no wy he was dragging this 2 year old Peterbild through a muddy field that I was going to go to town and call the boss.
He said no that they will take care and he got on the radio and talked to someone and then told me to pull in the field entrace, which was gravel, and drop the trailer
About the time I got it dropped and had pulled off to the side a ratty old Hendrickson tractor came driving up the road. He hooked up and they chained up to him and away they went! Four hours later they came dragging back, literally! the wheels on the trailer
were so packed with mud thy were just sliding.
They came to a stop just off the side of the gravel lot and just then a tank truck pulls up and the commenced to presuerwashing the whole rig! Took them two hours to get it clean and that included prying big rocks from between the duals! Then I discovered that two of the brake chambers were tore all to heck! Had to disconnect them and back off the brakes to get it to town for repairs, which they paid for but cost me another day!
Could talk about learning to drive an old twin stickl Mack and a nonbaffled asphalt trailer
