Carrying a Spare!
29-FEB-2016 Vern Rogers (fotabug fotos)

Carrying a Spare!

Just got home from a long day trip to Portland and back (110 miles away) for my 6-month eye exam. They check on the growth in my good eye twice a year. The trip up wasn't too bad, just a quite cloudy day. But the trip back was in the rain, and so not as nice, especially when passing the big trucks. But the trip was worth it to get the news that all looked good in the photographs, and tests. Made my day!

None of the trucks I saw carried a spare like this one!

Nikon 1 V2 ,Nikon Nikon 1 10-100mm f/4.5-5.6
1/60s f/5.6 at 42.4mm iso640 full exif

other sizes: small medium large original

And we say we are are worried about climate change. More trucks and SUV's being sold than ever and then a BIG, just for fun, rig like this. I wonder what it's carbon footprint is?

Good news for your eye Vern.

Private RV huh? Someone has some money! Or a big mortgage on that rig.

Like a huge yacht with a runabout for errands to shore. ;-)

Probably gets better mileage using the spare. But the load carrying capacity is somewhat limited :)

So glad to hear good news. Love the little spare too. ;-)

Don't know Vern, maybe the truck just took the cars parking spot...

That's some RV! How do they get the spare (not a toad/towed!) on and off, I wonder? Good to hear about your eyes.

Laura Milholland01-Mar-2016 06:37
Very cool find, Vern. I guess they must carry a sturdy ramp to get it up and down. SO happy to hear that things are good with your eye!
