This photo was taken on our trip in May 2017 I had Charlotte take this photo of this Navajo truck, it just brings back memories of the old Navajo Freight Lines back in my early years. This photo was taken around Green River Utah the triples reminded me of my days at CF Motor freight pulling triples. We stopped at Carl's Jr. in Idaho Springs Colorado for a sandwich and this was sitting in the lot right next to Carls Jr. It was a bad day of trucking.
This is a shot Green River Utah. We are on the east end of town looking to the west. This truckstop is still going strong today. When I was at Illinois California Express we use to exit at one end of the town or the other and go right through town then, there was always a few Moffett trucks at this truck stop back then, and we use to stop there once and a while when I was with CF motor freight when we were running to Denver Colorado out of Miraloma California. At one time this building was a bank, it's so cool.....
We stopped at a view area and this photo is the start of going up Green River Grade I just happen to catch CFI coming down the grade. In this photo is FedEx starting up Green River Grade. Truck parking on the eastbound side of I -70.
In this photo we are in Salina Utah and it was even snowing a little bit. This photo we are on Highway 50 headed towards Ely Nevada. I like this old Bekins storage building, this photo is in Ely Nevada.
This old Preston trailer sits in Newport Ohio. This CF trailer was backed up to a dock in Marietta Ohio. This old American motor trailer sits in Belpree Ohio.
Navajo Cup!!!!!!! The back side of the Navajo Cup!!!! What our old house and what it looks like today this was taken this year 2017 on our road trip.
