Megaload Makes First Leg Of Journey Succesfully

When you work in transportation, people tend to get excited on your behalf. I received a text at 5:45this morning from a friend on the coast that said, "It's megaloads day!" Uh yeah,I still have another 20 minutes before my alarm goes off.

The first oversized ConocoPhillips load safely completed the first segment of its four-day journey across U.S. 12 early this morning, arriving at a pullout two miles west of Orofino at approximately 3:20 a.m. The Idaho Transportation Department has this video of the operation.
