    Luke suggested a few from the truck'in days. Here are a few from a trip in 2005 to Durango, Co. These were actually taken by the wife, with the Olympus C60z.
    Any one else, is welcome to add to this Haul'in, thread.

    Stopped for construction, climbing East side of Wolf CreeK Pass, Co.

    Summit, 10850 ft. Crossed here about 11:00 PM, one New Years Eve, with empty 53' box trailer, no snow tires or chains, in snow storm (my first trip). 5 or 6 inches of snow, and pilling up quick. Only to find out about 10 or 15 minutes later that we had lost that pickup. Such is the glamerous world of truck'in.

    Loading pumpkins in NM. Truck pulls the conveyor through the field while, the men on the ground load the pumpkins, that men inside stack on flour up to about 5 or 6 ft high. About 40,000 lb. Delivered to Memphis, Tn.
    There were hundreds of acres of pumpkins and 10 or 15 trucks visible from our location, alone. Fields went for miles. This was my only time hauling pumpkins.

    Not many jobs where you can tell your boss to kiss your butt and he'll just say thank you.

    Seems like a great job opportunity for a photographer. Is the dog's name Mack?
