Really, I do not know what was in the trailer still to this day. Since I saw nothing really unusual, there would be nothing unusual to photograph.
Someone asked if it "pulled" like it was only 500 lbs. Truth is, it was like pulling an empty trailer. If I stopped at a light, I would take
off in fourth gear with no trouble. One of us had to remain awake with the truck at all times, so if I needed to stop for the bathroom, I had to wake
up my team mate and we had to call the 800 number and report the stop and the reason.
Picking up in El Paso, TX, the load could have easily came out of Mexico, or it could have been delivered to El Paso from the Albuquerque area
where there are a lot of Gov't facilities.
To clarify, the bills gave no Gov't entity for the shipper. It was listed as a business. The person who briefed us was in a car with Gov't
plates. The bills also did not give a final destination....only the secure lot where we dropped. The drop was in Eastern TN...again a place near
several Gov't sites (Oak Ridge--Nuclear facilities).
Modern trucks have the option of using an electronic device placed on the windshield to "pre-pass" us at scale houses. We have one of those
Neither of us have the endorsements that would allow us to carry explosives or radioactives (haz-mat) The bills were to be placed into an
envelope and sent directly to the company upon delivery BEFORE we could be paid for the load.
I am at a loss as to what it was. Any guess would be pure speculation.
