some people wonder what i actually do
 
I escort Oversized Loads on semi trucks, sometimes i follow, other times i lead

I found this video that the rear escort did on a job, & it is why i want a video camera similar to his.
This is a normal every day job for an escort
this is a dodge Ram, i think the front pilot also has one

http://www.youtube.com/user/CertifiedPilotCars

This pilot car is about to do a route survey, he puts up his height pole & then has to check the roads that the oversize load will be traveling
he checks for everything that may interfere with the load, he looks up to check for wires, bridges, & from side to side to check width clearances, his head moves around like a curious chicken

oversize load, with private & Police escorts are fun

Now you see some of the things i do & why i find it so interesting, hardly ever a dull moment
You also see why i go through so many windshields, because i have to tailgate those semi trucks & on bad roads the semi trucks tires are constantly throwing up rocks & other stuff

ShawnC13 01-17-2013 10:37 PM

Yeah how many windshields do you go through in an average year??

GTyankee 01-18-2013 02:23 AM

usually 1 windshield every 2 years, at that point it looks like someone used a sandblaster on the whole windshield
It makes night driving a real pain, vehicles coming towards you is the worst

when i bought the Ram, i had a special chemical applied, that makes the glass stronger, sort of using a hard wax on paiint
My windshield should have had more coats applied to it every so often, they gave me the chemical to use, i just never applied it
