workhard....did that..pls read previous comments
jm...it was 2 workers...and since removal is part of the job, they (via their supervisors), should have the proper equipment made available to them.
old bis..pls see proper equipment remarks...like a shovel, or a sling for the two men to lift it.
mac....if I'm digging a big hole at home, I use a shovel...if I'm working for the state, I have better equipment to do the job...like a back hoe. A shovel or a sling is all those men needed.
Dt..I've never seen it before either. I think it was a lazy removal...they should have the proper gear for this. And I don't think it's a SC thing...happened in Florida too, I have found, but there the state worker was dragging in the road!
CD...I think they were taking care of business too...but not in a proper way.
Ya just don't drag a dog bumping down the side of the highway. Two men and a shovel/sling or something equally appropriate to remove animals should be in the arsenal of every highway department. I surely never saw such a thing in my life...but I've seen plenty of dead animals on the road. And I've seen refuse workers work together to remove a dead animal. With shovels, gloved hands. But never this way.
I can't imagine anything else to say on the subject.
Another possibility I'm finding is that this may have been their way to remove a dead dog from the highway. Cuz they didn't want to shovel it into the truck?? And still, they dragged it for a looonnnggg way.
Either way, no one, including children riding by, should have to see this.
Edited to change title and post ....bet it was a lazy/horrific removal:
I saw a South Carolina Department of Transportation white work truck dragging a dead dog along the grass on I-95 at Exit 98 in Santee, SC at about 9:30 am this morning. Details are posted at my blog, but has anyone else ever heard of this? My guesses are 1. that is was a horrific removal or 2. that they are using, what I hope was, a euthanized dog from a pound to keep deer off the road?
I'm appalled to say the least, at this barbaric behavior, and I'm searching the internet for more, but thought I'd ask here.
Bill....gotta disagree with you on Bs in Florida. IMO, there's no cheaper place to buy them. I don't think there's anywhere else in the country to get a '99 RoadTrek for under $10k
Plus, it was to be my ONLY vehicle. A C just won't do as a daily driver for me.
Well, I thank you all very much. I canceled the deal. Seriously bummed, but it's the right thing to do, even at $9900. I just can't afford a toy that will cost me, and be a replacement for my car.
Wonderful dealer though: Brian at Daytona RVs in Port Orange; so if you're looking in the area, talk to him. Good man, that. Tell him Susan sent ya.
He didn't say that. All I am sure of is that he looked at the rear wheels, and said they were disc.
Never said anything about the front. I was being specific because *I* don't know what I'm talking about. And I guess my saying that he said the rear brakes were disc, brought about the confusion here.
I just wanted to be clear, and in doing so, confused many here. My bad.
Here's what happened: We were sitting on the side of the road while the brakes cooled, and he went to the rear of the vehicle, and said: Yeah, they're discs, as he was trying to figure things out.
My specificity (due to being a careful clueless person on these matters) has confused many.
Welp, they didn't respond via email. And ya, it does seem clear in the print, but sometimes pointing out the clarity of a statement, about it's lack of inclusivity, is a statement unto itself. So yes, I asked for clarity, though it was clear, and not oddly enough, they didn't respond.
So, no "angst" (*ahem*). Just simple forethought.
And more power to anyone who has never had a company deny what was said on the phone. I've had it happen at least 2x in my life, and I like to avoid that situation, so yes, I believe in the power of email. Once you tell a company you have an email "to that effect", you get soooo much farther than when you say "...but someone from your office said . . ."
Nevertheless, they didn't respond, as they said they would, within 2 business days. Which, in and of itself, says a lot about them.
.."Angeles National Forest have been closed"...
And a girl with Plague in Denver from fleas.
I didn't know anything about this. I'm such an easterner!
Not too hard to find IMO. Just look for that hightop in pics and chances are there are two other beds in the B
Hey bill, thanks...no rust on those spots that I saw, and I did get it up to 70 mph on the highway...there was some sway, but I've had that in other vehicles (ford E350 and Winnebago View).
However, no truck passed me, as I was hoping for. And I can say, it is not a pleasure to drive.
I did just call and ask for the brake system to be flushed, and was told they'd do it, but the owner is off today, and he's who I prefer to work with (ie: gut telling me that just because this person said it would be done, I'm not sure it will be done...same person who "fixed" the drain pipe leak with silicone, which didn't work (natch), so they replaced it)
So, all my faith is in the owner really, who comes through each and every time.
Oh, and it's at their mechanic's shop, so I guess they'll do the flush. And I've asked for clarification as to what kind of brakes are on the rig: disc or drum.
Actually, he didn't say what the front were....just that the rear were disc.
I'm completely lost.
Will give them a call and ask for it to be brought to my mechanic (again) for brake fluid flush/replace, and new fluids all round.
But I suspect they're as tired of this as I am.
I do appreciate the suggestions. Just having trouble understanding
There are B's with an overhead bunk (over driver/passenger) and rear bed (twin or made into full/queen/king). Means the kids would have to sleep in the overhead bunk together.
Then there's always the option of carrying a tent for the kids to sleep in.
