    A fast aside. Allegedly there is a prison in NY down in a hole. The worst of the worst are sent there to live out their lives. Get along and die a natural death. Be disageable and you will leave out early in a box. No guards, civilians or anyone of authority down there. They are sent supplies and must do everything for themselves. From a driver who claimed he delivered there. His info about the area was geographically correct as I am from NY. So who knows.

    They were nice enough to give me a guided tour inside,you could get lost. Here's an outside pic,this was at Harrisburg,Pa,have been there several times with these,loading,unloading,in all weather.They like using that airport,has a really long,unobstructed runway,which they need.I've live loaded into C-5's at Dover before,but these things are huge.Fun to watch one takeoff,you just wonder how that big sob can fly.

    I have a bunch of things in 37 years LOL.
    But one that was different was a 10 foot tall 12 foot wide washing machine that I took to Atlanta Ga . I had to drive in the building and through all of the other displays to unload it . It wound up going to Mexico to a Levi's plant . They said it held 2500 lbs of Levi's. The water lines going into it were 4 inches !!

    Another one I did just a couple of years ago was a load of NASCAR memorabilia from Charlotte NC to the NASCAR museum in Daytona FL. It had car body parts and fire suits from Earnhardt ,Elliot, Wallace and a bunch of others . Some went on display and others went into storage at the warehouse .

    I have also pulled Earnhardt JR'S swag wagon from the Kansas track to the Talladega track . That will get your picture taken while you go about your day and everyone wants to talk to you too LOL .

    There a just a couple of the top of my head .
