Thought I would post this video of a little creek crossing. Age and gender are very evident in the clip.

I'll never complain about a bit of uneven-ness in any of our major highways ever again! ... [;-)

I thought the rig was only a tandem semi, initially - then I was stunned to see it was a B-double with tri-axles on both trailers!

Is that a slip of a girl driving the first rig?? She doesn't look a day over 18!

Cheers, Ron.

I thought she looked about 15, Ron. :-)

Did a couple of trips to the 'Curry in one of these Globetrotters about 10 days ago. Wouldn't like to be doing what these 2 young ladies are doing!

After a 909 they're a bit different!!! Best advice I had was: "Don't touch the wheel, Bob , don't touch the wheel." But the 700 ponies come in handy.

Bob

There was a great documentry on Volvo on that Mega Factories show last week.

They showed the construction, development and their new recycling programme of the Globetrotters. Apparantley they are aiming for a zero landfill commitment and are now designing with recyclability in mind.

Very fascinating concept.

Thanks for that Anthony. Might have to chase that up when I get home.

Probably leading the field in safety features, is the big Swede. Just a lot different to the American style trucks, and what you get used to.
