Great shot.
Wonder how those following safety truckers feel driving right behind those nozzles.

It's entirely possible they don't even know what they're escorting. It's so heavy wrapped most of the contours are barely visible and I didn't see a single Space X logo...

Wish I could take credit for the photo. It passed me before I could get a shot and I was running low on battery so I didn't want to follow. I called a friend in Andrews and he took some photos as it passed.

I'm not sure what booster that is. Which direction was it headed? If it was heading east, then it's probably B1048 headed for McGregor. Everyone has been wondering what is up with B1048 since it's taken so very long to show up.

That's a big find. Nice job.

Yep. Headed West. I got a text at ~9am that it was spotted on I-20 near Abilene.
