    LOL, I'm about 45 mins southeast of the I-81 / I-78 junction.

    I will if I remember. Maybe you can remind me when you see me going North on beesource.

    Greg, I put a layer of dbl deeps on the deck and then pick up a stack of two pallets, one pallet dp plus medium and one pallet of dbls. My Bobcat can't pick up three pallets at a time. Besides, the top pallet in a stack of three would be well above the head board of the Bobcat. I'm also on uneven terrain.

    If I had a skidsteer w/ a mast then I could load three pallets at a time. How do you load?

    Hoping to come home in the Spring w/ more story and a halfs and some singles, on fourway pallets.

    If you get a chance, take a pic of the boards and straps as they go on the semi.

    Very interesting to watch for us non-migratory types. Certainly a learning experience. Have a safe trip.

    What's your machine like? I'll be loading mine 4 high story and a halfs next Spring. At least part of the load. That's the plan.

    Hummerbee.

    Helps a lot to have a level loading area though. Mine is not the greatest so it is slow going in areas, esecially stacking them up and moving in position to load the truck.

    I only have one load plus and work by myself, so I go nice and slow. If I had thousands to load I'd do it like GS too. There is an abandond Walmart Parking Lot I have dreamed of using.

    Thanks for Posting that Mbeck. Anybody else got one? There must be a Hackenberg Video out there somewhere too.

    I wish it was 5 degrees warmer here.
    Is it solipsistic in here, or is it just me?

    I do on my own truck. Actually they are 2X10s. But, my trucker lost one once, which can be a bad thing. So now he uses the spreaders, as most of the truckers who move bees do these days. The ones I know anyway.

    Do you use 2X6s on your semis.

    2x6's are pretty much all I see anymore, sometimes used together with "v" boards though I kind of think that's overkill except for the front and back. The spreaders look like a nice setup but perhaps a bit bulky to haul?
