View From The Cab time again on Tachoblog!

This week Tachoblog’s spent a bit of time digging back through the VFTC Archive and it’s fascinating stuff!  Don’t worry, this weeks pictures are all new!

Have a look at the Views in this one from almost exactly a year ago from Tachoblog’s View From The Cab – 29.1.10. Or, there’s our very first snapshot of the world inTachoblog’s View From The Cab 20.3.09. What’s especailly nice to see is that most of the Tachoblog Tribe from back then still appear in VFTC now!

But you’re probably keen for us to stop waffling and get on with this week’s Views.  But before we do, Tachoblog would like to thank the Tachoblog Tribe for sending in their Views this week.  Let’s be honest, Tachoblog is only the curator of this post, it’s the Tachoblog Tribe that make it what it is!

So we begin this week with Darkstaff who in this View was ‘waiting to roll in Whiteland, Indiana where the temps were in the single digits this morning’…

Darkstaff then shows us the ‘Jeep manufacturing plant in Toledo, Ohio’.  [Ohio! Did you see TheNose100?] He says this was ‘taken southbound on I-75, arguably one of the worst highways in America right now’…

…Finally from him we find him ‘shut down in Wytheville,Virginia.’ Darkstaff tells us that he loves ‘having the control to make this decision. My company truly cares for it’s drivers. I’ll roll when it’s safe!’
