    I always had a lot of trouble getting shippers/receivers to load my trailer when I had "passengers".

    Used to pick up from a place that made movie screens. Had one going to a Vegas amphitheatre that was 52' 6". Had another that was going to Michael Jackson's Neverland Valley Ranch, hate to think of the home movies being showed on that one.

    Was sent out to pick up a load and was told to bring it back to the yard. The load was old video games that did not work. Each one had a tag on it stating what was wrong. Lets just say that in a few week the building looked like an arcade with half of the machines working again.

    I hauled a load of Douglas Fir Christmas trees in mid February from Oregon to Tennessee in a 53' reefer. It was my second load I hauled when I drove for Central Refrigerated.

    I can't think of anything weird i have hauled,BUT the weirdest thing i ever saw strapped down was,

    I-5 northbound near Red Bluff Ca,guys on cb were telling people to look on the flatbed in the hammer lane,as the truck passed me i saw he had a pretty darn big Pitt Bull strapped to his trailer with a lumber strap,the dog couldn't move other then his head,about ten miles up the road a CHP had the guy pulled over and the dog was no longer on the trailer,if the cop wouldn't have caught the guy i think a bunch of drivers were planning on blocking the guy and beating his AZzzzz.

    I use to run LTL in Florida and there was surface mine in Bowling Green that had giant dinosaur bones on the top shelf in their warehouse. Warehouse guy said they find them all the time and they use to give them to colleges/universities but no one seemed to want them anymore so now they crush them up. The ones on the shelf just happened to be the last ones brought to the warehouse.

    I made arrangement with my company to have one shipped to my son's elementary school and the science teacher went nuts when he saw this 8' long 3' round bone. It made the paper and my company started shipping these bones to a few schools in TN that where near the company's HQ.

    When I first started driving I worked for a company that would make prefabricated cabinets for Dunkin' Donuts and we put everything need to build the whole insides of shop. We would drive all over the U.S. and Canada arriving in the middle of the night. Then we would take an empty shell of a build to servicing the first cup of coffee within 72 hours.
    OPUS 7 and I Drive Thank this.

    Here and there
    Went to a place in Pennsylvania once to pick up medical supplies (becton dickinson?) and was told to bring a clean reefer unit set at 36 to drop and hook. Hooked up to another running reefer and went down the road. Didn't think about it until later the next day and was like, "wait, what kind of medical SUPPLIES need to be ####### refrigerated?". Pretty sure it wasn't a load of extra limbs and organs but still kinda fun to think about. No idea what was in it. Right now i'm taking a 41,000 lbs of ground chicken bi-product to the Nestle Purina pet food place in Denver. Shipper didn't smell too nice around that area.

    A good amount of pharmaceuticals need to be temperature controlled. Nearly all vaccines need to be refrigerated , also most any antibiotic needs to be kept from elevated temperatures.
