If you have more photos of the same event / trucks, please post them. IoTD's strength tends to be in its completeness.

Three or four more roundups like that, and we've got a pretty good start on supplying the tailgating before an average American football game.

Wow each truck is pulling 3 of those things?!?!?!??! Holy crap, thats gotta be a bitch to control.

Hokay, why aren't the other 3 pics that I uploaded showing on the main IoTD page? (post #3) I always forget how to do this right.

Maybe a mod will take care of that. Personally I think its fine to add them in a subsequent post.

I bet they kick up some dust.

Now that's trucked up.

Yep, if the guy in front taps his brakes, every single driver will be "trucked up". 'Cept the guy in front, and he gets trucked up the ass.

I last drove through the NT outback 10 years ago. At that time it was the only place in Australia with no speed limit outside residential areas. The roads are generally straight and flat so you can see another vehicle coming from miles away. Roos and other animals can appear suddenly, but the trucks just plough through them. General rule was: don't drive after sunset unless you have good roo bars, otherwise drive behind a truck. So not much happens despite that, but at such high speeds it can just take a small woops (like a microsleep, or, in my case, realising there is a huntsman in the car) at the wrong moment for something like this to happen. And even though we have Flying Doctors it can take quite a while before you get help at the scene.
