    Was riding with a friend when we came upon this truck yesterday. Prague plates (which says a lot here- substitute NY city). No ropes to tie the load down. truck 1.jpg

    Hay bales are softer.;)

    Around here during hay season you see a bunch of round bales in the ditches. I strap my round bales down when I haul them on my gooseneck, but must don't, Saw a guy one time pushing a bale off the road with his truck and empty gooseneck. Must have lost one on the way back to the farm and was taking care of it on trip back to the hay field.

    These were square bales and we stacked like that, with the side bales resting on the edges of the bed and hanging over the sides. We staggered each level so the load was somewhat inter-tied. I forget how many levels we had from the top of the bed sides up...five maybe? I'll have to ask my buddy. Pretty good workout tossing 'em up to the top level. <>

    My question is how far did he drive to get to that point. Looking at the stacks and lack of stops for the bottom row outstide, it would only take a few potholes to have that lower row separate and start to tumble. However, the background is showing city scape, so I am thinking there isn't much of a forest close by to scavenge that much wood. Maybe it's a joke?

    Look for crazy crash vids on youtube and see all the insanity that happens on Russian streets. Czech isn't far from there.
