Friday again so it’s time for you to join Tachoblog on the whistle stop tour of the world that we call View From The Cab.

The idea’s simple, the Tachoblog Tribe send in a picture (and sometimes more than one) of what they can see through their windscreen, Tachoblog edits them together and the end result is this – View From The Cab.  As always, Tachoblog is very grateful to all of the Tachoblog Tribe that sent in their Views.  If you’d like to join in – and we have a new member of the Tribe this week – then all the details you need are at the end of the post.

That’s enough of Tachoblog, let’s get started with this View of morning in Tennessee from Darkstaff.

In New Zealand Vic H ‘had a trip down to Hastings and back yesterday, about 850km return, and there was heavy rain for a lot of the way as you can see in this photo taken as I was climbing out of the Waipunga Gorge to the top of the Tarawera Hill on the Napier-Taupo Road…

…’It rained all the time I was loading the wine in Hastings and the road in and out of the vineyard was a bit muddy’…

…’However the rain stopped as I got back closer to Auckland and the clouds started to clear; it was a bit hard driving straight into the setting sun’…

…’Then when I got onto the Auckland motorway the roads were dry and the stars were out which was a relief as I didn’t really fancy a 50km motorbike ride from work to home in the rain.’

Back in America we find Amishtrucker taking ‘a nice early morning stroll over Lake Texana on Texas 111 near Edna Texas. During our drought last summer this lake was really low but now it has filled up nice again. Have a good week everyone!’

Returning to  the USA, we say hello to One Girl Trucking, the newest member of the Tachoblog Tribe.  She sent us this beautiful View of Rosie (her truck) and the sky somewhere in Nebraska or Kansas – if you like this View as much as Tachoblog does, you’ll be glad to know that it’s available, full size  on our Wallpaper Page
