I just had to laugh recently while driving with my mother in the Schuylerville area.  I think - in fact I KNOW we were right on Route 32 when out of nowhere came this...this....monster!

My first reaction was - IT DOESN'T EVEN FIT ON A CONVENTIONAL ROAD.  LOOK AT THOSE TIRES!

Second reaction -  What the heck do you CALL that thing?

Third - Can you imagine if that was your job to drive that?

Fourth (and of course typical negative thought) What would happen if a guy on a motorcycle rounded the corner in the opposite direction?

Yes, it slowed our trip down a bit, but that wasn't the point.  I was mesmerized by how this guy maneuvered this ....ah.....thing around.

Can anybody tell me what they use this for, and maybe he/she can offer me a ride in it one day , just so I can say I did it?
