Awright guys, lemme see those IDs!
Author: santafe199

Just another perilous moment chasing after some big black water boiler? Nahhh... This amiable officer was parked and waiting with anticipation along with a few other fans, including TO members "mg8711" & "upkpfan". Big Boy strutted right up 9-Mile to everyone's delight. And contrary to certain dark predictions, there was NO demo-derby when we all jumped into our vehicles and commeneced to chase...

1. A Kansas Highway Patrol Officer is apparently about to "bust" some highly suspicious characters loitering along old US hwy 40 west of Carneiro, KS.

2. "Aw shucks guys, I was just kiddin'. Whatcha'll lookin' at, anyhow?"

3. "Holy moly, izzat a prairie fire over there???"
(3 photos taken November 21, 2019 overlooking "9-Mile Hill" west of Carneiro, KS)

Thanks for looking!

That KHP Trooper was really blessed to get  something different than the routine stuff they usually have to deal with.

Of course not! I quit shooting the people, and started concentrating on the 4014...

I can see why the Trooper stopped. Some of those vehicles are not parked all the way off the road.
Just an accident looking for a place to happen.

Um, how about a picture with 4014 in it? Otherwise, I feel let down.

Nice fall color, even if it isn't on the trees.

        If he stopped because some vehicles were not all the way off the road, he sure stopped in a funny place. Obvious at least one driver hanging out on the hiway is obviously still in the vehicle, his foot is on the brake pedal.

The Trooper is a friend of ours and he stopped because he figured I would be there and he wanted pics. also. Nothing to get excited about. upkpfan

Very cool the Trooper stopped to get pics. UP 4014 is something you dont see everyday, so thats cool. 

Reminds me of a run in with a cool Sandusky, Ohio officer earlier this year.

I too would enjoy seeing your pictures of 4014 coming around that bend!

I would too!!!! :^) 

This thread was an "on-the-road-quickie" dealing strictly with the fun of having a KS Hypo Officer join the photo-line. I DO have a bazillion photos of the 4014 ALL OVER THE PLACE. But I just got home last night, and this morning I am just sitting down to weed through, locate & date about 1700 digital images from 9 days on the road. Because of the generosity I learned from fans like Bill Gibson & Lloyd Stagner (both now deceased) there's NO way I won't eventually share all the good stuff. An early estimate tells me I have at least a 4-part series straight ahead. But you boys will just have to be patient... ;^)

added: And you guys having a HERINA about cars parked here & there GET A FRIGGIN LIFE!!!! There was a Kansas Highway Patrol Officer RIGHT THERE, (in case your eyesight is bad). NOBODY got a ticket. NOBODY had a wreck. NOBODY got even so much as a broken fingernail...
