    I've hauled pharmacueticals before and had secret escorts.

    Considering what they did to Sapps in Omaha that day I am betting it was more than a Plate. Needed to get fuel one time before Chicago. Tru ck was fast but a pig at the through if you get my meaning. Well I told hoim I would be getting Fuel at Omaha at Sapps. Gett there and there is NO ONE at the place just 4 people there 2 on the pump and 2 at the Fuel Desk and that was IT. The guy riding was not the only one I had with me in the truck either that was armed. In the bunk were 2 more each with a M249 set on Full Rock N Roll. At sapps I got fuel box lunches for all of us that were USAF Issue I will swear til I die. Yes the Feds told me to Shove the FMCSA regs for that run with what I had on. I still to this day have NO CLUE WTF I hauled.

    One of my supervisors, Gus Kelsey, asked me to load the Hippie Memorial on the back of a load of Budweiser from St. Louis to Benton Harbor. Gus did not know what he would do with the junk art designed by his friend Bob Moomaw, but he knew it had to be saved. I met Moomaw at the vacant lot he was forced to sell in Arcola, IL. The Memorial had been dismantled from the fence surrounding the lot. Moomaw was not much help during loading because of a missing leg. Kelsey was instrumental in returning the Memorial to Arcola, or at least setting up a replica. Kelsey had possession of the original Memorial at his home in Bridgman, MI before it was bequeathed to him upon Moomaw's death.

    In April 1998, Moomaw died of a heart attack, bequeathing the memorial to Gus Kelsey, a former Arcola hippie who had moved out of state. Kelsey refurbished it, and the city allowed it to be placed downtown, near the old railroad depot.

    To be clear I'm not a professional driver so my little 'haul' does not count in the stories.

    I was given 2 gallons of clean new mercury in 1 quart plastic bottles, 2 gallons of acetone, and two neutron detectors.
    The 12 year old kid's mom wanted it all out of the house and called a friend of mine. So I drove from Dallas to OKC to pick it up. Sold the Hg to a jeweler for $$$$. Neutron detectors are still sitting on a shelf, no use for them but too valuable to pitch out.

    A note on a silicon wafer above -If it has been processed to product it may be worth several $K each so you might have had a million dollar load there.

    A company I visit for engineering reasons and can't mention buys processed unsawn wafers for making special amazingly complicated 'products' and pays $5-20K each wafer. They actually saw the wafers up into dice ('chips') themselves and use the individual dice, hundreds in each completed 'product'. It is an amazing operation to see in the few various stages I was allowed only for engineering reasons. All carefully hand assembled stuff of the highest precision, quality, and cleanliness. The product is 3/4 flatbed long taking months to build and the parts that are not made in house come from suppliers all over the USA only. The duty of the final product is so harsh if the thing lasts >1500 hours exposed in its working environment they are 100% happy.


    Thank you for hauling wafers! I would have no decent job without the delicate semiconductor wafers being where they need to be, when they need to be there, clean, and unbroken.
