What's the standards for standards?
« on: March 18, 2006, 08:09:45 PM »
Wonder if this fella is a logger or if he just has a unique way of hauling his 2x4s home?




Got any ideas what he's up to with this?

It's 82 and 78 but you are only about a mile from being right on the 82/273 intersection.
Good guess!

I did not realize Bonham was that big so I figured it must be Sherman or Paris.

Bonham is not big but we have quite a few roads that run through. Y'all plannin on coming this way still?


Jodi I don't know what's holding them up. I was adjusting the radio when I noticed the rig pulling through. I had to do a double-take as I grabbed the camera. Didn't really see more than what we all see here. He's heading toward Paris direction, where there is a big sawmill, although it could be for anything - i reallt have no idea I posted it because I am curious if anyone has ever seen anything like it and what he might be doing with these 2Xs jyst, apparently stuck in the railing!?

Obviously Kev, the guy must be a Texan and since we have 3 and 4 ft stakes for our trailers here, here figures that being a good Texan, he needs them to be 8 footers... :D :D :D

Yep he probably was going to Paris then head north to OK - I'm sure he didn't want to get accused of having smaller stakes than you fellers ;) :D

I'm with Corley... I think he is hauling bales of hay, and using the 2x4's to keep them on the trailer.  It does look strange with no hay and just the 2x's though ;D

That's a common sight around here Christmas time, tree hauling, maybe he's one of our stragglers coming home for spring  :D.

Wouldn’t be hay in these parts. With the drought and hay shortage a man might get high jacked for a trailer load. Maybe less. Heard at the feed store this morning about somebody paying $125.00 per roll.

He could have been hauling plastic pipe. Two by fours driven into the stake pockets of  the siderailing will usually keep it on the trailer.
    8' allows you to haul more pipe.

Kevjay, we're talking about taking a little trip after Mar 30th and I was hoping to drop buy.  I've gotten the camper out and set it by the house for Jacque to load up.  Until this testing is over at school, she can't seem to concentrate on much else. 

With the way folks are just driving up in ones yard and stealing stuff, I'm a little afraid of leaving.  Ain't much but it is mine.
