You’ve been waiting a couple of weeks, but here’s the post you’ve all been looking forward to, Tachoblog’s window on the world that we call View From The Cab.

In case you don’t know, the idea’s simple…The Tachoblog Tribe send us pictures of what they can see from their cabs, and we’re very grateful for them.  You’re welcome to join in too, just have a look at the bottom of this post to find out how.

Despite Tachoblog being away for a bit, the Tachoblog Tribe still sent in their Views, so this post is a collection of all the ones we’ve received since the last View From The Cab.

Now on with the Views and this week we start with SurfingTrucker who’s having a ‘fun-filled Foggy Friday morning here in Boxborough, Massachusetts.

Next up is Amishtrucker who saw this ‘oversize hauler near Corpus Christi, Texas. I passed this truck the other day near Corpus Christi, Texas. I don’t know what this type of rig is designed to haul, but there is a lot of heavy haul and oversize load hauling for the oilfields here in Texas’…

Amishtrucker also sent this View of ‘almost Full grown corn near Wharton Texas. I know it is June already and it is ready for corn to be almost full grown, but it seems like the year is going so fast. Hard to believe the harvest is just around the corner. I have been watching this field as I come by about every 2 weeks, and here it is, as tall as it will get and tasseling out.’

While Tachoblog was off the air, TruckerDesiree’s had an accident and says her View ‘is going to look like this for a spell’.  Tachoblog’s only just found out about this and we – and you too we’re sure – send her our best regards and hope she’s on the mend and back in action as soon as possible…

Heydriver and Goldie have sent in a few Views too.  Their first is another shot of the Tappen Zee Bridge spanning the Hudson River in New York.  Heydriver says that ‘Goldie’s looking different’ as he ‘decided to dress Goldie up a bit.  Handles and a hood ornament. She’s looking spiffy. I can dress her up….and take her out! icon smile ’…

…Their second View is called  ‘Fog and The Blue Ridge’ from I-66 E, Front Royal, Virginia…

Heydriver 37

…Heydriver titled this View ‘Sunrise Fireball’ which is from   Laural Highlands, Pennsylvania.  ‘The Sun rise through nature’s filter. Shot through fog on the PA Turnpike. It overwhelmed the camera on this phone a little’…

Heydriver 43

…Today they’re at Pilot, Hagerstown, Maryland.  Heydriver’s ‘just playing around with the camera settings on the HTC Incredible.  Posterization, camera speed set at 1240 and full zoom. Trying something different today.’

From New Zealand Vic H sent us these from his ‘down and back trip from Auckland to Napier, about 800km, and that road is always worth a photo or two. About 3 and a 1/2 hours after leaving Auckland the sun was just coming up as I followed another tanker up the hill at the start of the Napier-Taupo road, with the newly completed Hilton Hotel Apartments in the background’…

Vic H 15

…’There was a bit of early morning mist around as I started to climb the winding Tarawera Hill’…

Vic H 25

…’and still more mist around as I reached the top, where there was this Kenworth coming up to meet me. This part of the hill that the KW is climbing is very steep, much steeper than it looks in the photo and in my tanker requires changing from 18th gear to 8th gear in the space of about 100 metres. If you miss a gearchange climbing this hill you come to a stop very quickly and it is very difficuly (or impossible) to re-start’…

Vic H 34

…’The building at the bottom of the hill is the Tarawera pub, which can be a refuge for motorists in the winter who can’t get up the hill in icy conditions’…

Vic H 43

…’On the way home I had to pull over to let this heavy haulage unit past; a 14-axle trailer carrying a transformer being towed by a Scania 144 and pushed (or held back, as necessary) by a Mack Titan’…

Vic H 5

…’Then, getting closer to home, the sun has just disappeared below the horizon and in hour or so I will be finished for the day.’

We find Darkstaff all over Texas, starting with this morning View…

Darkstaff 16

Lastly for this week we hook up with TheNose100 who is delivering ‘to a Dairy in Marietta, Ohio. Have a straight back up to tank’…

TheNose100 18

…Staying in Marietta there’s a ‘scale (ahead) then back up thru the fray’…

TheNose100 27

…We started VFTC in rain, now ‘there’s some fog on the way to Marietta.’

TheNose100 33

…But to finish, there’s more rain when TheNose100 heads to Medina, Ohio…

TheNose100 41

…This is Exit 222 off of I-71…

TheNose100 5

…And finally TheNose100 tells us ‘Medina, OH is also the Home of ROOT Candles, here I am going past their factory. Sometimes you can smell the fragrances as they make them.’
