One thing at a time. First load the truck.

You gotta admit he dreams big. Pretty sure it was for his boat.

Notice that the LR wheel cover opted out of this trip.

I'm surprised that, as hard as the chunk mashed the truck onto the ground, that it would still roll on it's own down that minimal grade. Had it been a little steeper the little village at the bottom might not have had Christmas this winter. Nice chunk of wood, though.

He did drop it nicely on target.

He meant for it to roll that way. So how heavy would that be?

I figure 100 cubic feet more or less (4' x 8' cylinder).

Maple is about 50 lbs/cubic foot green; white oak about 60; poplar about 38.


So... maybe 3,500 to 6,000 pounds depending.

He was optimistic about that truck's capabilities.

Impact probably bent the axles at least.

My online delivery van was automatic. Everything else I've ever driven has been manual.

I got lost once, doing deliveries in Dunfermline, when the satnav just gave up amongst a set of new-builds. Seeing a local attempting to find their own new house, I pulled over and hopped out to speak to him about the street names. Or lack, thereof.

From the very start, he didn't make eye-contact, which weirded me out. He was too absorbed in looking over my shoulder.

I did one of those slow horror movie turns to find my van 20m from where I'd left it, quietly creeping down the street towards a junction...

I guess that is better than to learn to move bowels
