We were tooling along on Missouri's famous bumpy back roads with a load of heavy metal. We crossed a nasty little bridge that gave our trailer a huge "bump", and then we heard metal dragging. As Cliff pulled over, I looked back and saw a huge hunk of metal totally across the oncoming traffic lane. It didn't occur to me to take pictures until most of the stuff was back on the trailer
The situation could have been disastrous had we been meeting a car at the time; someone could have been injured or killed.
A man behind us who was taking his wife to work was wonderful, and helped Cliff get everything back on board for the remainder of the trip to the junk yard.
This is why there is a law that junk has to be covered when you haul it. And it's why we go the back roads to a small town, rather than the big city.
