Just stack it all on the roof!!!



I took this on my way home from my T/T check-ride.

I don't know what it was on the top of that minivan, but it was a lot of metal and wood. The back wheels were almost touching the body.

Resolution ain't that great, but it was a gray day here. Hope that looks a little better.

I still wanna know how you take that picture while driving let alone taking an exit with your rig. I tried to take a picture of richmond w/ the city buildings outlined in lights. I couldn't drive and do it. I gave up afraid I would crash or cause a crash.

Seeing the rear wheel hugging closer to the top of the fenderwell area as the suspension yelling "awww heckno", that certainly is an awful lot of weight and does not seem like a generally secured load ....and definately a dangerous haul, nice redneck load picture captured here.

My curiosity is I can imagine how safe of whatever is being constructed in the mix of materials seen here with the same mindset of transport.

Sure there is. Education.

Aside from the weight, I'd be worried about the top-heavy look of things in that picture!

Just remember, there is no cure for being STUPID.

I took safety in mind before the snapshot...It was my co-pilot. If you look in the upper left hand corner of the pic you can see the rear-view mirror. My hands were at 10 & 2 at all times.
