|We had a very treacherous trip to the top this day in mid November 2014. I-70 goes through Eiswnhower Tunnel. We are not allowed to go through that tunnel with Hazmat and are routed HWY 6. We were parked side by side exactly
covering up the second truck. The truck in the foreground is the truck that I drive it is a 2009 KW T800

I was 19, in 1984, when I started driving this 1979 KW W900 Extended Hood, owned by Barger Grain Company based out of Wauneta, Nebraska. It had a 3406 A PCTA and 13 speed. The name on the door was painted in gold leaf!
I grew up on a farm in very rural Nebraska. Like most farm kids I started driving
farm trucks out of the harvest field at an early age. The trucks I was driving just kept
getting bigger until one was a semi. This photo taken near Scott City, Kansas at Poky Feeders.
