I saw this in the news, just a tiny link near the bottom of the page. I don't think anyone is talking about this. There may not be a conspiracy of any kind. It just helps to know what is happening in the world. How often does Nuclear waste get moved?

Umm.. Wow... Yeah... Oh My ... That's just something to see. As a lifetime trucker, all I can think about is driving 700,000 lbs of of trailer. I was going to speculate on the route...but thought better of it. I'll leave that alone since they obviously want it left that way... lol.. I sure wouldn't want to be the driver on anything more than about a 2% grade though. Up OR Down. What a thing to move! Clive is up on I-80 though, so it's quite a distance to go alright!

S/F! What a catch for this. I saw some really really weird things over the years out there but this would have taken quite a cake for being among the top, no doubt!

I am worried because much of the United States is getting a lot of wind and even blizzards in some places. An inexperienced driver could have some trouble if the roads are icy, there is fog or any road conditions that unexpected. Even if the driver is experienced not everyone on the road is a great driver. I'd be white knuckled all the way. Also how can we be sure this waste is properly contained in whatever that thing is. Is it radioactive? It just looks weird. I mean waste can be a weapon even in the wrong hands.

A load like this would have the state police/CHP they talk about in the article and front/rear/side to basically form a rolling roadblock whenever they felt they wanted to as well as security response somewhere nearby and out of sight. The cops probably don't know where those are for sure.

A few guys I've known in trucking hauled DOD and US Treasury loads under escort and the security is intense. There is no possibility...NONE...of the truck doing anything it wasn't meant to do ...and the guys chosen for that are the best. Not necessarily by accident record or by paperwork compliance score. Like you note, you don't want a bookworm driving that who can spot a logbook violation at 10 yards, you want the guy who doesn't lose a load ..ever..and never says he's gotta hold things up for a personal issue of any kind.

At 25mph max speed, it's also not doing much for being a hazard. Ice? Oh...people should be so lucky to be behind THIS thing in a snow storm. lol.... It's sheer weight would breakup anything formed on the roadway.


I'm just surprised at the location. I know of depots in other states for waste and not all headlines on CNN..altho nothing secret really. I hadn't heard this one tho... Learn something every day.
