I know a few guys on this site will know what these are.
I'll post another picture once someone guesses correctly.
They are over 20ft long and you can see their size in relation to the truck in the background. Should be pretty easy once you think about it for a couple seconds.

I'm thinking something that can be laid down on sub par ground to distribute the weight of a heavy truck so it doesn't sink and get stuck in soft soil. ???

I'm a delivery driver for G&K services. I deliver uniforms, mats, dust products (mops, rags, etc), and paper products.
I like the job, but not the company. I'm now looking for another job, but it's income and much needed. I've been at this job for a year now.

Right on. Are you looking for a specific job? Or whatever pops up that captures your interest? As someone who's been laid-off three times in three years, I know how frustrating seeking employment can become. Good luck... keep an open mind.

By the way Rick, how is your wife doing?

My dream job is with Colorado Parks and Wildlife (formerly Colorado Division of Wildlife). Would love to be a Ranger, but that opportunity is few and far between. You usually have to have been in other positions with CPW or have a law enforcement background to get one of those jobs. I'm still hoping though. Every time they have an opening, I apply and state that I am a quick learner and hope that they give me a call. So far it hasn't happened.

She is doing good. She had a couple interviews this year, both with local radio stations, due to her website. Her website is also listed on many breast cancer resource websites, as well as a couple well known breast cancer websites have posted some of her videos on facebook and what not.

Hopefully they will give you an opportunity. You never know.

Great to hear your wife is doing much better.
