 :D Much of that video could have been done not far from here, the terrain and vegetation look so similar.

Just another random truck clip, filmed about 40 mins South of home. So recognise a lot of the local trucks. Bonus wind turbine blade near the beginning.

That was interesting. The truck and pup with the second steering axle seems to be a big thing there although I noticed one super B. The hippie camper on the red GM at the 7 minute mark was funky to say the least. :D I also noted a DELAVAL service truck, those guys really get around. They are well known here.

Nice load. Do you know what the point of those snorkels is? It looks to me like the visibility would be horrible with those things in your field of view.
Im guessing just an aussie trucker style that carried over from days of old.  Originally for cabovers to get air over the roof (which wasnt necessary) or trucks fording in backcountry which i guess australian road trains did a lot of.  Drivers naturally cling to the old days.  Truckers were well paid heroes back then.



3000 chicken lights and massive CB antennas 45 degrees forward is americas lingering relic of good times gone by.  They do rx/tx great that way but if anyone at all is on the radio its just nothing but fighting and BS.  Not sittin in the rockin chair with your good buddy front door watchin out for county mounties and chicken house go arounds anymore.


 Up north the radio is just dead and down south its just guys screaming at governed slow trucks with foreignors in the left lane plugging up the flow.  They never have CBs to hear it.

@Skeans1  

@ thanksgiving i saw a legit west coast long logger headed SB on 81 up in north virginia.  Had a compensating pole trailer on his back.  Cant remember exactly but it was an old truck like a general or autocar, somethin like that.  Maybe for a county fair, id be surprised if it was being worked but maybe i guess.  Only one i ever saw in my life.
