Bicycles, Clothes, Toys, Meat, Milk, and Ice Cream are all hauled on 18 Wheelers ! !

In these continuing installments of “Have You Seen My Daddy’s 18 Wheeler?” we will learn that 18 wheelers haul even the most common products and produce used in the United States.  Here are the next two pages of what the 2nd grader understands about his dad’s trucking experiences.  I hope you enjoy them.

Dry Van Trailer:

Many times Dad’s tractor pulls a dry van trailer.  Dry van trailers do not have a refrigerator to keep the products cold.

If you could open the big rear, double doors, you might find it full of cat (or dog) food, furniture, bicycles, toys, paper towels, clothes, or so many other things we use in our house.

I laughed my head off when Dad first told me that his big, expensive, 18 wheeler was full of toilet paper.

Sometimes he hauls things like car parts, paper, building materials, tools, and appliances.  Dad said he got to deliver the National Championship and Heisman Trophy Cases to Florida State University.

He says everything would stop in America if 18 wheelers were stopped.

Refrigerated Trailer:

If you could open the big rear, double doors, to his refrigerated trailer, you might find it full of fruits or vegetables, or maybe milk, or maybe ice cream or frozen turkeys for Thanksgiving.

You can tell it is refrigerated because there is an extra motor on the front of the trailer to keep it cold.

Mom and I can go grocery shopping every week because 18 wheelers, like Dad’s, are always hauling food from the farms and warehouses to our grocery store.

This is two more pages from the exciting children’s travel picture book titled “Have You Seen My Dad’s 18 Wheeler?”  Did you help your children search for that license plate from Montana?  Maybe you’re old enough to remember searching for it with your parents?  But, as an alternative, did you and your family ever wonder how many 18 wheelers we share the highways with?  “Have You Seen . . . ?” presents this story and full color pictures representing more than 84,000 tractors that you can spot while driving.  Are you the bored adult passanger – why use it to look for these tractors?
