Hurry hurry wait

In this one and a half minute video, Jack drives over the pipeline then has to wait in back of another truck while a grader finishes clearing the road.  Then he continues on down the hill – you can see the grader on the left.  (Don’t forget, the video is in HD so don’t watch it blurry!)

Jack driving next to the pipeline

Here’s several clips put together of Jack driving next to the Trans-Alaska pipeline.  (Loud music)

Curved directional pipe for crude oil

Jack says they are used for crude oil and that they lay on their sides, not upright like on the truck. You can see the actual metal portion of the pipe that is colored green with anti-corrosion paint.  The black is thinner metal and in between the two is foam insulation.

This load is obviously going to Deadhorse or Prudhoe Bay.  (FYI:  Deadhorse refers to the “town” where companies have their operations, and Prudhoe Bay refers to the actual oil fields and is a much larger area.)
