____Day 2: Loaded and away; on the Labour Day long-weekend. Very few trucks on the road and most of the truckstops are empty as companies get their drivers home. A full 11 hours driving needed with the rig right up to the 80,000 lbs legal US weight. Interstate 29, then Highway 81 south to Norfolk, Nebraska, and Cubby Bear's truckstop. Where even the good ol' boys, who pass comment on every vehicle at the pumps, are taking a break from their regular table.
|A dry Highway 81 for the first time this year.|
|Trailer tyre was changed in the shadow of the upright cabover at Tonkawa, Ok.|
|Nothing special to look at, inside or out. Just tasty well-cooked food at reasonable prices.|
|Massive bank of grain silos at Salina, Kansas.|
____Overall Distance: 4633 km.
|Have you ever seen so much rubbish in a vehicle?...... Not counting your average long-haul trucker's cab.|
