Standing in a Truck – A Different Way To Travel In Oman

Once we left the city of Muscat, seeing men and kids standing in a truck was a common site in Oman. Our guide thought it looked like fun, I thought it looked dangerous, what do you think? (Don’t worry – standing in a truck is the last in this series on Laugh Quotes – links to the cows are below).

    I use to do it all the time when we were kids if we were on back roads. But it is dangerous and I have often wondered how I ever lived through my child hood. But it was fun!!

    I haven’t got mine up yet for Wednesday. I need to get busy and get something done! I’ll be linking up shortly I hope!! :-)

    Definitely scary! I wouldn’t last a second! It reminded me of something I saw recently – a garden worker standing in the back of a ute with a hedge trimmer to reach the top of the hedge …..but with a mate driving them along while they trimmed it!

    I think it looks like fun. I would at least try it. I don’t think I would let me kids do it until I’ve done it first. The people in the pic look as if they are pretty good at it. Maybe because they’ve been doing it for so long.

    It looks dangerous for USA’s society because the conditions are different. But I’m sure its safe for theirs, because they are more cautious when driving due to people standing on the backs of trucks. Great picture!

    That poto reminds me of a show we watch about the world’s most dangerous roads. I saw one episode about this steep windy narrow dirt road through the mountains in China. Now am am wondering about wind & wind. The wind is blowing or wind up the clock…
