Cow Crap

The cattle trucks are rolling towards the high country (met 4 of them east bound on Hwy 70 today) which means there WILL be cow crap in the corners.... This is almost as slick as Whale crap on an ice flow so watch your step....

CHP feels 58mph in a 55 zone is a bigger safety issue, so calling in the crap spewers is pointless. I know, I tried.

YMMV RON

Rant Rave Re: Cow Crap

Cow crap is bad but pig is the worst.It's just as slippery but stinks 20 times more.I once followed a couple of trucks loaded with pigs and the stuff was splashing out the back and making riding like Russian roulet on the corners. That stench is embeded in my memery forever.

I have to agree with you there! When I was a young lad I worked at a truck stop in Road Forks NM and the trucks that smelled the worst were pig haulers and the chicken trucks. Cattle come in a close third. Of course there is nothing that smells worse than livestock that has been struck and is left to ferment on the side of the road for a few weeks. That stench will travel for miles!
