Here we are at the end of November – soon be Christmas! – and it’s time for View From The Cab.  Sorry that this wasn’t posted on Friday but we / Twitter had some issues and we couldn’t get hold of all of the Tachoblog Tribe’s Views.

But, without further ado, let’s head to New Zealand to catch up with Vic H.  Vic says ‘It has been the same thing every day this week, an 800km trip from Auckland to Napier and back, so 4000km for the week.  On the way there I have to drive along the main street of Taupo before turning left along the lake front. It’s a nice place, Taupo, and in fact my wife and I will be heading there for a week’s holiday shortly’…

…About 20km further on I got stopped for a random Police check in the middle of the forest and had to drive over this portable brake tester; this is obviously not a view FROM the cab as that is my tanker in the photo…

…Then from the top of the hill you can see the coast in the far distance, and the city of Napier is there on the coast but it’s a bit far away to see in this photo.

In America, Emailokc was at his second shipper waiting to be loaded.  Problem was he is 6 hours early.


Rainerri1967 was in Schwenningen in the Black Forest region of Germany.  He points out that ‘this Friday, the same place as last week’, adding ‘No, I drive, I don’t stay here the whole week!’.


Back in America again, Darkstaff has sent in several Views from his week.  First off we have Lake Rend, Illinois while he’s heading down I-57…


…Now we can see ‘crop dusters lined up like Air Force jets in Arkansas’…

…Next the Mississippi River crossing via the I-57 bridge from Illinois to Missouri…


…He’s obviously in a watery mood this week as Darkstaff’s next View is of Lake Ontario from the QEW near Grimsby, Ontario.   He says to ‘notice the old sailing vessel’…


…Moving onto sky shots, he sends this of the Dallas sunrise, that he took on the day before Thanksgiving or the ‘day before turkey day’ as he calls it…


…Now he shows us Phoenix, Arizona as he was ‘just passing through’…


…And finally the sundown over the western Arizona mountains.


Finally for this week, TruckerDesiree and Karma the Wonderdog sent this View (from where we know not’ saying ‘Great minds think alike, Trucks pulling up right and left’.


Tachoblog’s thanks to all the Tachoblog Tribe that sent in their Views.  There are a few less than normal thanks to several members enjoying a break over the Thanksgiving period.  Tachoblog hopes they had a good one.
