    Hopefully the driver now knows in the future to slow down when hauling light in high winds

    I sat at the TA in Cheyenne for two days waiting for them to open either I-80 or I-25 this weekend. I was parked between two other trucks and the wind was rocking my truck enough to make me sea sick for a while. Absolutely crazy to drive in it.

    Sounded like they were getting squishgasms from the thrill of it all.
    They are the type of non-man that only goes to an auto sports event to see a crash.

    This is southbound on I-25 at about MM 3, about five miles from the yard I run out of. That day was the first time I recall getting a message to call in if coming back empty. I talked to guys who did so and were told to shut down in Denver and elsewhere.

    It's interesting to note that both trucks who blew over had their tandems all the way up. I've learned to slide them all the way back if there's any kind of serious wind (say, steady over 25 mph or gusts over 40 mph).

    Completely agree that the guys filming are complete d bags.

    The nice guy who unloaded me at my last stop that day put 8 tons of pallets in my trailer so I could make it back, plus I came up US 85 instead of I-25, since it's usually a little less windy on that road.

    IDK, winds come I slow down and if they get too creepy, I park. Not a fan of wind. Fortunately, I'm usually pretty heavy. But, I don't care. If winds start knocking me around, I'm parking it. End of story.

    Once again, the failure of the two idiot's to put together a comprehensive sentence without the use of profanities shows the sad state of the educational system of the US.

    I would’ve said there was something in the water or in the air myself, but that’s just me. LOL
