I've never had any doubts about that either, but it's interesting watching the progression.

      Don't fret, Mr. Hansen - they will get through eventually.

          Oregon megaload journey delayed until Sunday
          PORTLAND – The start of a
              megaload shipment of oil refinery equipment through
              Eastern Oregon has been put off until Sunday, and
              objections have been raised in Eastern Oregon that the
              state didn’t do enough to notify tribal and local
              government officials.
          The shipment has also drawn
              protests from environmentalists gathered Sunday and Monday
              at the Port of Umatilla. They want to call attention to
              the global warming repercussions that could come from
              development of oil from the tar sands in western Canada.
          The shipment weighing 901,000
              pounds remained at the Port of Umatilla on Tuesday, two
              days after it was scheduled to move.
          Spokeswoman Holly Zander for
              Omega Morgan, the Hillsboro company handling the move,
              said it took longer than expected to load and secure the
              shipment. The company hadn’t planned to move on the
              Thanksgiving weekend in any case, she said, so the trip
              through Eastern Oregon is now expected to start
              Sunday night.
          “We weren’t in any huge rush,”
              she said.
          The trip to Alberta, Canada, is
              expected to take 20 days, six in Eastern Oregon. It then
              goes to Idaho and Montana.
          In Eastern Oregon, objections to
              the way the shipment was approved were raised at a meeting
              of a state Department of Transportation advisory panel on
              Monday, the Ontario Argus Observer reported.
          Kayla Godowa of the Warm Springs
              tribe told the Southeast Area Commission on Transportation
              her tribe hadn’t been consulted about the move, which will
              go through a forest conservation area it owns near Prairie
              City, east of John Day.
          The city manager of Vale, Lynn
              Findley, said there’s concern about a 90-degree turn the
              380-foot-long transport has to make in that city, and Wes
              Allison of the Nyssa Road Assessment District said he’s
              worried about the impact of the move on a road and its
              bridges and culverts.
          Megaloads are getting bigger, so
              the department is reassessing its process for public
              involvement, regional manager Monte Grove said.
          The agency takes up to 10 days to
              process a megaload application, said spokesman Tom
              Strandberg, and in this case he sent out a news release
              and notified the Umatilla tribe in northeastern Oregon.
          Six members of the Umatilla tribe
              also objecting to a lack of notification joined
              environmentalists at the port on Monday, the East
              Oregonian newspaper reported.
