Tachoblog’s View From The Cab – 23.7.10

Tachoblog’s been a bit quiet this week, but we haven’t forgotten about View From The Cab.

Before we look at this week’s Views, Tachoblog would like to invite any driver to join in if they’d like to.  All you have to do is email your Views to vftc@tachoblog.com or send a tweet starting #vftc to @tachoblog – please do include a line or wo of text that says, if nothing else, where the picture was taken.  Have a look at this week’s Views and you’ll get the idea in no time.

Anyway, let’s see what the Tachoblog Tribe have sent in this week.  We start with Amishtrucker who you won’t have seen in last weeks VFTC.  Thanks to the wonders (ahem) of technology we didn’t receive them when he first sent them and thanks to Tachoblog’s incompetence we didn’t add them to the post once he’d resent them, so we’ve a bumper crop from him this week which kicks off when we ride ‘along in coastal south Texas near Bay City fixing to go underneath the power lines that come north from the South Texas Nuclear Project’…

…Now Amishtrucker is ‘sitting at the red light at Corn Products Road in Corpus Christi. A left turn here and I am at one of my favorite restaurants after a day or working the city.  Corn Products Road is sort of an interesting name but I don’t know the history behind it. Will have to do some research’…

.Speaking of corn products, this field of corn (and many more like them) are to be seen all around my part of Texas these days. This particular field is close to Markham, Texas…

…Lastly this is his View of a marker near Cararina, Texas on US hwy 83 that he says he’s passed ‘many times, too busy to stop. But this time I had time to stop and read, and I am glad I did. The Camino Real, the King’s Highway, also known as the Old San Antonio road, ran through Louisiana and Texas and on to Mexico City. I don’t think that there is a road today that follows the old El Camino Real along the whole way but parts of different highways today follow the original route.

Finally for this week we catch up with SurfingTrucker.  We’re sorry to hear that he’s ‘still healing from bone fusion’, but pleased that he’s ‘back in the saddle this week’…

…This is him ‘crossing the Merrimac river in Lawrence, Massachusetts at dawn’.

Tachoblogs thanks to the Tachoblog Tribe for their Views, without them this would be a very dull feature!

For those of you missing your Views of New Zealand, you’ll be pleased to know that Vic H is alive and well, just on holiday!  We received an email from him today and he says that he’s back at work next week, so we can look forward to some Views then.

That’s all from Tachoblog for this week, we’ll be back on Monday.
