Today was day 2 on my way from Maine to Minnesota. Just your average morning sunrise, but still worth noting. Driving along with my first cup of coffee, I was really enjoying the ride. Weekends are great, less traffic!
My route takes me west on I80 out western Pennsylvania. Lots of nice scenery, even on an overcast day.
I reached mile marker 141 and came up on standstill traffic. I turned on my CB, and someone said a truck had rolled over blocking the entire road. Apparently, the driver lost control somehow, then rolled on his side. Someone said he was OK, but the trailer split and dumped the load. Several dump trucks and a loader went by, going up to clean up the spilled load.
As I got closer, sniff sniff…Vinegar!
Apparently, the load was pickles! Strong odor as I went by.
No way to save any, just scoop them up, and haul to the dump. I’m glad no one was hurt bad. It’s always scary when you see a fellow trucker in a crash. You just never know when it’s going to be your turn. Meanwhile…Vinny was not impressed!
Happily snoozing away! (Yes, I give my dog a pillow!)
