Boeing Dual-Driver Truck/Trailer Combination
This video shows one of the unique dual-driver truck/trailer combination
vehicles used by Boeing to transport aircraft wing spars to the Boeing
assembly facility in Everett, Washington. The first driver, as with any
other truck, is in the "front" cab. You can see the second driver in his
cab underneath the trailer, just in front of the rear wheels.
Pulling the trailer out
Couldn't hitch it back to the truck so we had to jerk her outta there. The
truck that was pulling it is the white dually in the background. Watch the
other video to see that white GMC get pulled out too!

Chevy Rescues Ford Pickup in Deep Water, Grayland, Washington
It was about 1:00 PM today 7/17/2010 when a driver and 3 passengers were
traveling south on the Grayland beach. About 5 miles south of Westport. It
is legal to drive on the uppermost part of the wet sand on the beach in
Grayland. They were traveling along the surf line when they drove out onto
a sand spit. The driver drove off the sand spit into a deep trench caused
by tidal action. The impact was vilant enought to send one passenger to the
hospital with a non- life threatining head injury. She was treated by
Grayland Fire Department and South Beach EMS then transported to Grays
Harbor Community Hospital. The male driver and two other female passengers
were uninjured other than being very cold and wet. A very dedicated tow
truck operator, Justin Jones with South Beach Towing raced to the scene and
quickly got to work. Justin along with the driver of the pickup waded
shoulder deep threw the cold salt water, to connect a tow rope to the Ford
Diesel Pickup and pulled the rope with a South Beach Towing pickup breaking
the strong suction of the soft sand holding the partially submereged
vehical in place. Once the suction of the sand was releaved the pickup
began to float as water rushed up the hood and icechests floated about the
back of the pickup. Justin Jones, the tow truck operator worked hard to get
the Ford to dry land however he estimates that the diesel pickup will be a
total loss. A Washington State Park Officer stated that the driver will be
issued a citation however it was unknown what citation he will be issueing.
I do know it is unlawful to drive next to the surf line at low tide do to
that being razor clam habitat. UPDATE 7/24/2010. I just found out that the
lady transported to the hospital sustained a broken neck. I hope she has a
speedy full recovery.
Chevy 5th wheel pulling a container
This is a guy using a 5th wheel pulling a container. I saw some crazy
stuff in China but this was right here on the 605 after I got back from
China. Pretty good commercial for the truck though.
