This is bad ass! Custom trucks transport giant wind turbine blades up winding mountain roads.

Hat Tip: Tai Wiki Widbee


  1. Can they not helo them up the mountain?

  2. Pretty impressive engineering, all right!

    How long will it be before you hear people say, "Remember when there used to be birds singing each morning? Huh. Wonder what ever happened to them."

    1. A BIL has a friend that services wind turbine farms in the Columbia river gorge. He says people would be appalled if they knew how many birds are killed by the turbines, daily.

  3. When it comes to service providers, it is customary in most parts of the world to tip. This is because, as a general rule, this sort of professional either does not earn a fixed salary or makes minimum wage, therefore being forced to rely on tips to improve their quality of living. But while tipping is generally encouraged for fast food delivery, waiting tables, taxi transfers or even hairdressing, there is one specific type of service that gets lost in the shuffle: courier jobs. Should your 'parcel delivery person' be tipped in a similar manner to, say, your hairdresser, or the waiter at the fancy restaurant? T.C. Tippers
