Over Sized Load

Behemoth Beam

While on deliveries we saw this mammoth beam bearing down the highway. Twice. One passed us and then a few minutes later another big beam and team went by again. Deja vu! The second time I was prepared and snapped off a shot to bag this monster.

    Holy Mackeral! Any ideas or speculation on where those giant beams are going to end up? What they will hold up?

    Holy cow. What is it, bridge parts?

  3. I'm guessing a bridge span somewhere north up I-89, the road that we were on.

    Maybe they heard about the eccentric and rather eclectic pig farmer building his own butcher shop and decided to drop off a couple of left over steel beams?

    Wow, glad you got that photo, Walter!! Good job!! Do you get a lot of noise from the interstate?? Or do your hills help keep the noise at bay? But I bet it comes in handy when you need to transport your pigs or have them picked up. Have a great day!!

    Ice Road Truckers come to Vermont?!

  7. The interstate highwayss are a long ways from us. I can hear the cars on state highways (one lane each way) Rt-25 and R-302 which are a few miles and mountains away but nobody else here hears them so they're not making much racket. We do get a large military(?) jet (refueling) circling low on a seemingly regular basis. We hear the granite quarry blasts and their noon whistle too faintly to the north. The pigs, ravens, coyotes, deer, bear, catamount, owls, doves and other birds make up most of the background sound. Them and the wind. We get a lot of wind and there's even more up on the ridge that we hear roaring. When I hear the wind roar I'm glad we're not up there.

    I am impressed that the beam may have been made in the USA!
