Seen in Passing

Fernley is well supplied with three large truck stops. It also has the site of the now defunct Truck Inn, whose sign (and 18-wheeler hoisted up in the air on pillars) is still there. The site of the Truck Inn is now a designated truck parking area across from the Flying J truck stop. It's a good place for trucks to stop (and also other oversize vehicles like RVs). Because of this, we sometimes see unusual loads, like this one we spotted while on our way to Lowe's a few nights ago.

Truck Stop

Lisa asked us to go back and have a closer look, which we did. She's a fan of odd military equipment like this.

We also get strange movements on the railroad, but they rarely stay put long enough to get a good photo of them.
