Fun Times Guide roving reporter, Randy, writes…
Back in July you featured an article on Ford SuperTrucks. I checked out the links you had and found them to be interesting and also thought that a SuperTruck would seem to be the ultimate big boy toy.
I was on my way home from work the other day, in Marietta, and came across a BIG, yellow pickup in traffic. I followed it about a 1/4 mile to its destination: a landscape supply company.
I took a couple of photos and the driver invited me to take more if I cared to.
This is a brand new International CXT.
The driver (didn’t get his name) is a salesman for Nalley International Motor Trucks in Kennesaw, GA. They let him take it out on weekends on occasion, if he needs it. In this case he took on 4 buckets of pine bark.
This model is a dump truck and the interior is LOADED. Awesome machine if you ask me.

UPDATE FROM RANDY:
I certainly didn’t expect to ever see one of those huge International CXT Super trucks again… or at least not for quite some time. But after getting some gas at the Kroger on Thanksgiving Day, I look over and see another one of the CXT’s.
This one is black and someone actually owns it — rather than the salesman taking it out for a weekend joyride.
Here are a couple of pictures:

As a lifelong traveler, I like to help people find unique ways to do things that will save time & money — so I write about "outside the box" Travel Hacks that most wouldn't think of. I'm SUPER organized and I love to pack! I've lived in 6 different states (Florida, Indiana, New York, Ohio, Tennessee, and Texas) and have visited every other state in the U.S. — except Hawaii. (Can you say bucket list?) I've been on several different cruises, airplanes, and boats in my life and I currently enjoy the outdoors by bicycling, motorcycling, Jeeping, RVing, camping, or just walking my dogs. My favorite "hobby" is riding on the back of our Harley-Davidson Road Glide traveling cross country — which we usually do at least once each year. We even rode from Tennessee to Alaska once! When I'm not on the road, you will find me at the corner of Good News & Fun Times as publisher of The Fun Times Guide (32 fun & helpful websites).
