Smart Car Ready to Go


This afternoon I was treated to a joy ride in Jackie and Brad Dadles’ big rig tractor, which they use to tow their HitchHiker fifth-wheel trailer. They have a tiny Smart Car that rides on the back of the tractor. The total length of their rig is about 65 feet.

I have seen a lot of commercial trucks with cabs that appeared to be big enough to sleep in and have always wanted to see inside one. Earlier this week I had asked Jackie for a “grand tour” of their rig and she offered to take me on a joy ride. Needless to say, I jumped at the opportunity. They have been volunteers at CARE this month but will be leaving tomorrow morning, so today was my last opportunity. After my joy ride, Brad put the Smart Car on the back. It’s actually short enough to fit sideways! I watched the entire process.
