Walmart Trucks

The Walmart Truck count (officially Walmart Truck Count Inc.) started on the 2006 trip as a way to pass time as we drove long distances in the USA. I was the inaugural winner picking the exact number of trucks we would see on a drive that took us from LA to NYC and return.

The rule is you have to pick the number of trucks you think you will see and be within 5 of the total. No point on being the closest when you are still 100 off the number.

The trophy is a model Walmart Truck kindly donated by my pal Jim who bought the model from the first Walmart store. The trophy, like the Ashes, stays put - in the case of the Ashes at Lords, in the case of the model truck in the Hartman's lounge room.

Eldest son Ryan is the current champion having won the count on the 2013 Quilt Bash. That last day started out with Susan a definite winner but alas for her we saw over 50 trucks between Las Vegas and Los Angeles and Ryan was the big winner.

Rayls is the sole judge and overall boss of the Walmart Truck Count Inc. and no correspondence will be entered into.
