Thanks for posting. I saw it coming. The semi was about a 1/4 mile ahead of me on my way home from Goleta on Foothill. It didn't turn on La Cumbre, Ontare, San Roque or Alamar. It pulled to the side of the road just past Alamar, the last possible street for a vehicle that size to get off of Foothill. It was probably headed to the Hitchcock area where all the dealerships are.

Agree, not going to a dealership. Look at the cars, not new or the same make, so likely being shipped to individuals. Lots of people drive one way and have their car shipped back or purchase a car out of state and have it shipped to them . My neighbor bought 2 that way. Lots of better prices out of CA.

What made you think it was going to a Hitchcock dealership by turning off at or near Alamar? Alamar is 1.25 miles from Hitchcock.

Foothill is a pretty long road. Where on Foothill? Got a nearby cross street for reference?

OK yea, maybe 400' west of Mission Cyn., still within a quarter mile. I'm having trouble getting Google street view to advance, but that's pretty much the only area with that much canopy cover.

TAGDES, from the photo it looks like the hauler is turning on Cheltenham Rd. But that's just my assumption. Given the OP was there including the location would've made the report less subject to reader "interpretation".

From the photo it would be between west and east Mission Cyn. which is less than a quarter mile.

Refugio Road was closed all morning for a livestock truck stuck below the Circle-Bar-B. Driver was using GPS and electronic map directions to a loading corral on the Santa Ynez side of Refugio Rd. Ooops. Several hours with the really expensive tow truck. Missed the sign warning against big trucks.
