Nice. It's a supergroup (i.e. a band composed of various artists famous on their own right)

One of them is Kris Kristofferson, who starred in the 1978 trucker movie Convoy. I don't have a whole lot of 1970's movies on DVD, but this is one of them (together with a bunch of James Bond movies and Smokey and the Bandit).

Yeah meat trucks are very sensitive to tip-over, especially at roundabouts and turns.

Has anyone here every played road board games? I couldn't find the local version of the original Auf Achse, a German board game in which you had to haul cargo around a map with all sorts of blocks, tolls etc., aiming to out-earn your opponents.



The borad (this is the simplified version, they had a larger one)


The trailers


The dared freight order cards


In action

Today in M0 expressway near Törökbálint a meat truck turned on its side and and way directed to M1 must have been closed. Giant congestion, more than one hour delay.
(The second similar case on M0 this week).
