Jan Vissers' Tiny Truck Tales

I made a video of a drive in Utah by our hard-working movers. It's about 10 min long so an easy bit of viewing the scenery from the cab of a 30 year old truck.

Short video with Preston and his Peterbilt 378 - going from his home in Flagstaff, to Grand Canyon.

The thumbnail may look like horrible resolution but the video is actually much better, 1080p60.

The Excitement of New-ness

Image
Buddy

You know that feeing when you get a new toy? Whether it’s a new smartphone, or a new TV or new car... the smell of the freshly manufactured metal, plastic and paint... there’s something to it. It applies to things you get because you want them, and to things you get because you need them. Buddy just bought an Alutrec flatbed...

Image
Pulling in

Working for Canada Cartage as a contractor, Buddy was fairly frugal and didn’t spend a lot of money, so after some time he was able to buy a trailer for his own jobs.

Image
Pulling Out

The trailer was an all-aluminum flatbed with self-steering lift axle, meeting the SPIF standards of Ontario, where he was based.

Image
First Run

His first trip with the trailer was on top of it a scenic one.

The passive steer works in curves

Having a truck that was gradually being paid off, and a trailer of his own was the first taste of true independence.

Huberdeau, QC

The perfect late afternoon light in the Laurentians made for a nice end to the first day driving for his own contract.

Near Lac Simon

Buddy was pretty sure that tonight he’d park and sleep like a baby in the warm glow of his newfound success.

Nice.

Glad to see Buddy out and about, and that Alutrec is nice, eh?

@BK Vissers

Nice combo.

Also, yeah that Alutrec is nice indeed.
Just a Texas boy who used to want to be a trucker, and a love of Big Rigs... but now ATS has turned said love into an obsession.
