Tachoblog’s View From The Cab – 20.8.10

This week View From The Cab’s been a bit like buses – you wait for ages then two come at once…

Anyway before we get stuck into this week’s Views and there are quite a few to get through too, do make sure you keep reading to the end of the post as Tachoblog’s got some big news.

So, let’s get started with the Views then and we’ll begin in Texas with Amishtrucker who’s wondering ‘Where are all those Uhaul trucks headed? A whole string (and I missed the first bunch in my picture!) headed east on I10 near Columbus,Texas.  This would seem to indicate more people rent them going west and Uhaul is moving a bunch back east’…


…Now he’s on the I10 and thinks that he’s ‘being passed by TheNose100′.  But is he?


Click below to find out if it is TheNose100 and to see the rest of this week’s Views…

…So, is it TheNose100?  We’ll let Amishtrucker give you the answer – ‘That isn’t TheNose100, it’s a clone!  Naw, TheNose100 hauls food in Ohio and up north and this guy is hauling a flammable liquid according to his placard ’1230′ which is most likely methyl alcohol or some form of it’…


…With that mystery sorted out, Amishtrucker finishes off with ‘some fields of cotton ready for harvest’.

In New Zealand, Vic H sent in what he says are ‘not strictly views FROM the cab, but yesterday I stopped at the top of the Mangaweka hill for a “wee” stop and to stretch my legs, so took the opportunity to get a photo of the cab’…

…’and also to look from the truck towards the distant hills’…

…’which have had a fair bit of snow on them, but as the official end of winter is in a few days there isn’t too much snow there now’…

…’A bit further on towards Waiouru the sunset was looking good; it will be time to stop for the night soon as I had an early start this morning in Blenheim in the South Island’…
