Luckily, all we had on was 12,000 to 15,000 pounds of refrigerated, plants.
The balance between the weight of the tractor and the weight of the
trailer was good.
Every bridge we crossed was solid ice.
(There's lots, of bridges!)
Can you say - "Scary", "Pins and Needles", "Edge of your seat"???
Yep! (I thought you could!)
We make it.
We get to spend a night at home - Chicago, area.
(Yeah, a whole, night at home!!!!)
Then, it's off to Toronto.
Via, Detroit and Windsor, Canada.
We get to Detroit - time to cross the border.
We can't take our trailer into Canada - Who we were driving for, has
set up a driver from Canada, to take the trailer to Toronto.
We go through "Customs" - this driver has our paper-work -
he takes off - with our trailer.
We're supposed to meet him at a restaurant in Windsor.
Time for us to cross the border -
Guess what - we have no "Paper-work" - he's got all of it!!!
I"m driving - we pull up to the "check-point" to cross into Canada.
We tell the person what has happened -
He asks us questions -
He asks us if were transporting any "drugs"!
He's looking at me - I've got a "pony-tail", hanging below my belt and a
"Fu-Manchu" moustache (Sorry about the spelling!)
We tell him - no.
He lets us into Canada
Should have seen the look on this driver's face, when we walked into the
place where we were supposed to meet him!!!
No problems with him!
(Lonny was a "Marine" (bless them all!!) - I was "Martial Arts" trained.)
Canada - nice place!!
Really, nice people!
What we found interesting was - in the truck-stops, they were playing
No, not the "both", kinds of music!
