The walking truck?...........
After a successful clean up on Johnson's Island, word spread of the "walking truck". What this meant was the truck was driving itself. Not too unusual for those of us who build our rigs to do so. But, for those whom have never seen a truck "walk" it's quite a spectacle. Many island residents were amuzed at the fact a truck can drive by itself and not gain or lose speed. Especially when it's a manual. "Why do it?" one may ask. Simple, to cover more ground. You ever try to pick trash up over a mile stretch without a vehicle? Long walk, especially back to the truck. It was this that gained many questions, a few followers, and multiple observers. Due to it's individualistic style, it has a possible entry to next years memorial day parade. Flying our banner of course. Maybe by then it will have a leash?
