    I am sure it would be quite simple for a Tesla car to report exactly where it has been and bills can be sent out accordingly.

    Saskatchewan did that with vehicle registrations. I imagine other places will follow soon.

    Pretty sure its going to be a per mile tax. Your rate will most likely be based on the weight on the vehicle.

    Well, if you have to fight a road like that, you might as well try to make it in one round. No tires blown or frame broke, I guess it works then. Obviously not in North America otherwise there would be a medic unit trying to resuscitate a DOT person writing the ticket of a lifetime. And, having a heart attack at the same time.

    I don't reckon they could've squeezed much more on that trailer.

    Bale fires are near impossible to put out. We usually let them burn, and tell the farmer he needs to watch it. When we deem it necessary to put out a bale fire, the best method is a tractor and loader and simply unroll the bale. Its easy to extinguish when the hay is only 6" thick. You have to push the bale the correct direction to unroll it. If the ground is flat, two guys with pike poles can usually unroll a new bale. Old bales sag and are tougher to unroll. When we need to put out a bale fire we will push the foam to 2-3% rather than the usual 1/2%.

    The drought around here has pushed hay prices to about twice normal and its difficult to find any hay to buy. A lot of old cows are going to the hamburger plant as there is little to feed them.

    Nice 4 x 4 between the frame and the leaf springs to prevent it from sagging. Bet they were doing wheelies on take off. Damn thing doesn't even have a hood!. Hope that kid wasn't riding in that truck, especially with that fuel tank between cab and the load as such.

    Looking at the blue tape holding the back window in (it appears) seems to indicate the reason log trucks have cab guards. I can hear the CB conversation between the driver and the shovel runner: "Push 'er ahead a few, I need another 300 pounds on the front. Oops,too much, pull 'er back about 8". Got some blue tape to fix my truck?"

    The steer axle on the black PU ought to grip in the curves just right.

    My 56 Power Wagon has a winch behind the cab, so a 9' bed factory stock is less able to handle long logs. I once transported a 28' log 36" diameter. It did feel like power steering!

    I like the (I’m going to assume full just because) fuel tank between the cab and the log, probably to stop it from marring up the paint.

    How are those front tires even on the ground. Maybe there is a counterweight on the front bumper?
