We have a bumper crop of Views to get through this week – Tachoblog’s very grateful to all the Tachoblog Tribe that sent them in – with several from the UK too.

This week we’ll be starting in France, moving to Germany and then England before we finish in America.

So let’s get started…

Although we’re in France, this View is from Rainerri1967 (who lives and usually works Germany) who is loading near Mühlhouse…

…After loading he has a quick drive home where ‘Baby Pinky is waiting for Papa’…

To England now and we join TruckDrivercouk ‘just past the Cafe about to hit final climb of Stainmore, County Durham’ eastbound on the A66


We stay in the North of England where Rizzo101 ‘found this old leyland truck at the back of a customers shed near Ormskirk, Lancashire – its a bit dusty!’…

…This is what he could see as he was ‘trucking through the Lake District’ and, as Rizzo101 says, it was a ‘beautiful day for it’

Let’s hop over the Atlantic now and catch up TheNose100 who sent this View of the ‘Sunset from Wheeling, West Virginia  – Popcicle factory, a rare instance of facing west to unload’.

It’s been a couple of  weeks, but we’re delighted that Darkstaff’s been able to send in some Views this time.  This is him ‘crossing the Mississippi river on US190. That’s a train trestle to the left’…

Down in Texas, Amishtrucker was ‘crossing the Causeway (Cos-way) from Corpus Christi to South Padre Island on the road that is otherwise known as South Padre Island Drive’….


…’Beautiful weather these days brings out lots of bikers. Saw these riders of FM 359 near Mathis, Texas’…


…’Beautiful rolling South Texas ranchland on Hwy US 181 near Kenedy’


Amishtrucker says that ‘all of these photos reflect the beautiful fall weather we are enjoying in Texas right now. It is beautiful. I wish it could stay like this for like ten months, and then maybe a bit of summer icon smile ’.

And finally for this week, we meet up with SurfingTrucker who’s ‘taking a little cat nap at the rest area in Chelmsford, Massachusetts’
