      Nice one Craig. I pulled a super b tanker with a R model Mack a few years ago. All I hauled in it was water but I used to have to drive down a cow path to load out of a creek then back it up onto the road.

      Great work craig. The shell tankers were always a standout on the road. Suprisingly there's not too many posted on here same as the old finemores you don't see on here much. Great work

      I had a very good teacher. I started driving before there was such a thing as a driving school so my teacher was a co worker that was 74 years old and could do things with a semi that I'd have questioned being possible. I was lucky to have learned from him I think.
