Flat- bed-buddies.
Usually what happens there is on crane moves, a coupla guys will take loads of parts... boom sections, shieves, jubs, what have ya.... and drop the trailers over night. Another fella or two will take a load, and deck maybe one or two empty waggons to take back

Also when a company buys a few new flatbeds they will stack them.
It saves on having to ratchet jaw with another driver on the trip to and back from the trailer manufacturer.

That looks like a jake brake kinda sitchyation. Is that like super downhill grade or just an illusion since there ain' no horizon?
6% for 15 miles with a few breaks along the way, west side of White Pass.

Always thought that Hwy 12 (from Yakima to I-5) was a PITA but a pretty PITA. It's even prettier north of there around Winthrop (love those old-time boardwalk sidewalks).

Lolly posted this one from earlier today. Taken at 196 (Parks highway milepost 196). Taken by a gal running a pilot car (not for Lolly who runs a tank). Been there many times as that's where we switched trailers with the guys from Fairbanks, unless we rolled through and swapped trailers in the yard.

Just curious if "Lolly" refers to her dad as "Lolly pop"
