Highway thru Hell

Recommended Posts

GOing back a few posts...

 

So that's Bruce's old truck in the blasting booth? Will be cool to see that one resurrected. I daresay the episode where they reveal that will become a Bruce tribute episode, and will be a fan favourite for sure.

 

Rasta Mike. I knew the yard, had no idea that was his! I don't know if I'm impressed at the collection, or disappointed in the colossal waste of iron just sitting there, slowly rotting away. Either way, I want to go spend a day just poking around taking pics.

 

For those looking, I'm pretty sure Netflix has the first six seasons of HTH.

No, they have only through Season 5 as of right now. I have been checking quite regularly for the season 6 episodes. 

 

As I had said earlier,

THE WEATHER CHANNEL WILL BE AIRING SEASON 6 EP 1 AT 8PM EST THIS SUNDAY FEBRUARY 25TH!!!

Not sure if it has been mentioned, but Netflix has HTH seasons 1-6 on it as well.

Yes it has, and Netflix DOES NOT have Season 6 yet!!! This is a pic of my Netflix on my TV screen just a couple minutes ago.

Also, as I have said about three or four times already, though I was off on the time but that was corrected, 

THE WEATHER CHANNEL WILL BE AIRING SEASON 6 STARTING SUNDAY FEBRUARY 25TH AT 8PM EST!!! 

This is also a pic of my TV screen of the episodes through my cable box for the available for HTH that includes not only what is airing on TV but what is on demand and also for Netflix since I can get it through my cable box as well. The only two episodes available for season 6 are those airing on the Weather Channel, which are also set for series record on my DVR.

Okay, so it hasn't been added yet. I know there was 5 last time I watched, and thought I saw on a site that shows what's on Netflix that 6 was out too. It will for sure be on there around the time that season 7 airs.

It really seems like only the really popular shows get DVD releases nowadays. Discovery was, and probably still is, bad about releasing DVDs. After the first few seasons of many of their shows, they either gave up on DVDs or decided to break up the seasons into "volumes".

heck ya, wasn't that something...don't know if it will make the show, noticed a bunch of Mario's trucks at the scene....maybe a good thing the snow held me and the kid up on the weekend.....it's not the road or weather up there that I worry about, it's the other people that worry me....people really drive like idiots up there, this is the second multi pile up since late Jan, plus a bus wiping out, 2 months in the new year and about 15 crashes up there already.....it's almost to the point where you don't want to even take your kids or family up there.....I've shown you in video's and pic's how people drive up there, which is the biggest problem going (way to fast for conditions) and you'd be surprised how many vehicles are NOT on M/.S snowflake tires...idiots...I think i'm just grumpy tonite cause work truck got smacked into by a inattentive driver...slap head...

100% his fault, but still,  good chance the damage is more expensive than the truck is worth ('06 GM crew, 380 000kms) which could mean a write-off

nailed both doors and the box...that's the "inattentive" guy at the back giving me his insurance stuff

It's good that nobody was hurt, but maybe you'll keep that in mind the next time you're taking pics or videos while driving.

been driving that hiway since it opened over 30 yrs ago.

kinda like my job, dangerous, but there is some people on this planet that are capable of  walking and talking at the same time....

I guess I just see it a little differently after spending 20 years as a professional driver, and cell phones have made my job even more dangerous than when I started driving.

the "Python" was at the Chilliwack yard today..

as was Jamie's newest truck, and I mean newest, he just bought this about 2 weeks ago. from what I understand, Mighty Mo is in for some repairs (using her hard...:D) and Colin is on a long haul in the States with HR126 and they needed a truck....like right now...

anybody up for another General? Jamie's antique road show is truckin' along...

has a Holmes 1801, 45 ton hydraulic. already even in JD red...and remember, ya seen it here first!

speaking of antiques, remember this from pg 4, Jamie wants to turn it into a bare frame long hauler

I thought it looked reeeal familiar, but couldn't place from where...

other day I was going threw some of my photographs (actual pictures from a film style camera...) and I came upon this hauler, when it was a hauler

pics aren't the best, I took pictures of my old Kodak 110 pics with my digi-cam....this is the results....

IMG_1358_opt.jpg.6d18aa743515ddf822d76e3b9e232297.jpgIMG_1499_opt.jpg.1c1fe216e68dc96165d693e4b596ea46.jpgIMG_1500_opt.jpg.9debd0f18e49c60ba8c09dc5553dc2fa.jpg

 

Not sure how old that picture is with all of Don's trucks, he does have a Western Star tri-dem rotator that is not in there, seen it in action a few times around the Loops, and also once at the Hot Nite in the City car show....heard through the grapevine that if they need to use it for a normal tow job (tractor/trailer), that they have to send a tandem to bring it across the scales because it is a wee bit heavy using the tridem!! 

The burgundy '56 on the flat deck belongs to a co-worker, the car is un-freakin real!!! He has owned the car for 30 plus years, big block 454, 8-71 blower, tilt front end, Foose rims.....it is worthy of ANY magazine cover for the bowtie fans, but was built for his personal enjoyment only! He has never entered it in a car show and no plans to do so, used only for summer.....when the sun is shining, heck, if there is water from some ones lawn on the road.....he will go around the block! The under carriage is just as nice as the top with lots of powder coat and chrome!

*Speaking of Bruce...back when I was working for VSA, I came down the hill to the truck stop in Merritt for a fresh cup of coffee, when I seen this old guy at the till. I recognized him, but could not figure out from where.....I was racking my brain thinking of different guys who I worked with, different companies....still nothing. It wasn't until I was heading back up the hill that it dawned on me it was BRUCE.....lol, I could have got an autograph, a picture, or even a grumpy "go away"......but missed my chance!
