I am on my way to deliver some barrels filled with orange juice. This stuff is very heavy. I am just glad that I went to a T.A. truck stop and scaled the load out before coming home. If I didn't, I might not be here now. 44,000lbs is a lot. The whole truck gross is at 77,978lbs. I only have 126 miles to my delivery point so thats a big relief. Hopefully I get a chance to meet some Mi. members.

I won't. The barrels are in the old type garbage cans. Locked and sealed tightly. The trip from Winter Haven, Fl to Chicago, to Sparta, Mi. isn't bad after all. I just wish this truck had Jake brakes. More fun coming down hills and make neighbors complain about the load noises!!!!!!!!!!
