Mystery Cargo

So I’m driving up US 97 just north of Redmond when I get stuck behind this HUGE tractor trailer complete with front and rear escort trucks. I can’t tell what the load is becuase it’s covered with that white plastic shrink wrap stuff. At first I think it’s a windmill power head, but as it rounds a turn I see how long it is and realize that it is too long to be a windmill powerhead. After several miles I finally get a change to pass this obstruction and as I pass I realize what it is.

What is it that’s ticking off every northbound motorist on US 97?
What is is that requires the largest trailer I’ve ever seen and it’s own motorcade to move?
What is it that requires this 5 gallons per mile traffic obstruction to get where it’s going?

A streetcar headed for Portland. I kid you not. You can’t make this stuff up.

    You just made my day I was hoping that you were going to say that it was a max car but this is equally as good.

    That was a load of crap that is being installed in the Salem Capitol for the next Democratic controled gang of crooks that will steal our money. It was almost as big as the lie that almost passed that would have let the so called bail out scam go forward. We stopped that dead in it’s tracks and the world did not end like we were told. Speaking of loads “How about that Omama fella?”

    Streetcars are very efficient once they are installed. Each streetcar is like taking 105,000 cars off the road forever! Wake up people. This planet is burning up. We have to do this stuff.
