LongTruck Is Long

There's Oil In Pantego?

Saw this on Pioneer Pkwy in the tiny speedtrap town of Pantego as I was heading into Arlington this morning.

The green gizmo in the center is some sort of multi-ton oilfield machinery. It was on some sort of cantilevered dual trailer setup, with a gooseneck rig on both the front and rear set of wheels. That's the truck crossing four 11 foot traffic lanes, and it's not even halfway out in the street.

I'd bet you need something more than a standard CDL to run that rig...
