Progress, page 44
Today the trusses were delivered on a huge truck ... a really long beast that I figure was
originally built by the military to haul aircraft carriers overland. There was no way such a long
truck could turn around on our lot, so we had to offload the trusses at a wide spot in the road
about 3/4 of a mile away.
The truck tilts to unload the trusses, but in this case the flat girder truss didn't come off the trailer
bed squarely and one edge got mashed a bit as it slid off the edge. This particular truss is actually
four laminations shipped separately but then sandwiched together on site, though, so I'll just put
the splintered one in the middle.
The other trusses came off much more cleanly and without any damage.
