Coffee truck

Some days I need industrial quantities of industrial strength coffee.  I was happy and excited to catch up to this truck in Illinois earlier this summer.

Pilot Truck Stops' coffee truck

Alas, the truck carries gasoline, with just an advertisement for coffee . . . Pilot Truck Stops coffee truck, photo by Ed Darrell

You know the result:  The “1203” hazardous cargo number means it’s gasoline, not coffee.  What a cruel trick!

Update, April 2017: A website called Fedora now has this photo as an available wallpaper. I hope it gets picked up, and I hope they pay royalties.

    Others get excited about these trucks like I do — probably disappointed, too, when they discover it’s just an advertisement, and not a description of what is in the truck.

    On Interstate Highway 15, near Ogden, Utah.

    This is enough to get the attention of many interstate drivers. Good advertisment for truck stop…..or Starbucks. Anything coffee would get my attention.
