Dude! Thanks for this video! It brought back many good memories for me.
For several years each I swamped on a 40 ton picker and a large tandem tandem bed truck and even the occasional floater.
This was probably the best job I ever had cause it was one I actually enjoyed and it was decent money too.
Got to meet a lot of good hard working people and travel all over the country.
Sadly it all came to an end one day when I had my foot and leg crushed while rolling drill pipe off a trailer. Don't regret any of it though.

through the mud as deep as the wheels are tall, no joke. Good times!
Dangerous hard work fit for a rare breed of person. The video doesn't show this at all but trust me only certain people do this job for any amount of
