Outside Tachoblog Towers the sun’s shining and the forecast for the weekend is even better.  But what’s it like around the globe?  Thankfully, as they do every week, the Tachoblog Tribe have been sending in their pictures of what they can see from their cabs, so we can all see what it’s like where they are.

As you’ll see, there seems to be something of an Ohio theme to this week’s View From The Cab, but we start our journey this week in Australia where we catch up with TwoCrowsDown who was about 2hrs drive north of Newman in the Pilbara, at the start of the Yandicoogina access road.

We join Heydriver and Goldie ‘at the split. US 15 N to the left. PA 14 N. to the right. Near Williamsport, Pennsylvania – Entering into the climb up to the top of Bloss Mountain and the Allegheny Summit we turn left into Rose Valley and then up into the Steam Valley.  US Route 15 (Future Interstate 99) is under heavy construction to improve the road way from two lane to four lane limited access highway. They sure have been working on it a long time. Enjoy the ride and be sure to check out Mansfield, Pennsylvania’…

…In this View we start our Ohio theme as they cross ‘the Ohio River. Pittsburgh skyline. West End Bridge. – Trying to get across Pittsburgh during rush hour is time consuming at the least.  A crawl is perhaps too generous for today’s traffic.  Heading east on the Parkway West (I-379 E) the traffic between Green Tree hill and the Ft. Pitt Tunnel was stopped for the most part.  Finally made my way down to Route 51 and headed off to the West End Bridge. It is a fine ride that way now that the construction is mostly done. Here we see the Pittsburgh skyline and the confluence of the Monongahela and the Allegheny Rivers.  There the Great and Mighty Ohio River begins.’

…As well as this View of ‘the main rail line into Laredo, Texas and the Mexico border runs along I35. At exit 13, rail traffic blocks access to the Pilot Truck Stop whenever they come by. and often they are moving slow here. You can get out by going around the back way and over the bridge. This view is from the bridge over the railroad looking back towards the Flying J, TA and Pilot at Exit 13. The trailers parked at the right of the picture are in a commercial lot.’

Finally for this week we join TheNose100 who, like last week (see ‘Tachoblog’s View From The Cab – 19.4.10‘) is still in reflective mood at the WB toll booth on I-90, Buffalo, New York.  Here he’s on his ‘way back to Cleveland, after making a delivery to a factory that makes frostings for cakes’…

…Now we find him picking up a trailer from the shop, at Superior Tank & Trl Beach City in, wait for it, Ohio!
