Welcome to View From The Cab, our weekly look through the Tachoblog Tribe’s windscreens.

View From The Cab Logo19 427x62This week we have three bridges, Tachoblog is puzzled, some Interstate facts, a video and more.

Best get started then.

We begin with RandyNose who is in, he thinks, ‘Portland, New York on Hwy 20′…

…Here he is in Buffalo, New York at a trailer wash.  ‘Food grade only. Hand washed with pressure washer, and dudes INSIDE the tank’…

Now click below for more from RandyNose and the rest of View From The Cab…

…’This old truck (a General?) has been neutered (no 5th wheel) and only blows (air).  I don’t care what they say. It’s not exactly sexy’…

…Here it is again but can anyone explain what it’s used for?  Tachoblog’s puzzled.

Darkstaff sent this ‘view from the ‘Sure-Kill’ expressway.  (Actually it’s called the Schuykill expressway. It got it’s nickname from being a fairly deadly road.)  I never really like being this close to Philadelphia, but our load to Deleware required driving a short stretch here.  By the way, no one was killed this day’…

…’Today, we drove through my stomping grounds in Pennsylvania.  It was rather foggy, as you can plainly see. Quite a sight though, very creamy and soft. Gave a whole new edge to very familiar sights.  This was taken along I-81 in the area of Carlisle.  (BTW, the “we” refers to myself and my team mate Liz. I jumped ship from my last company to go where she was. Been there 2 months and doing very well! And to boot, she’s an import. Born and raised in Holland!)’…

…’Here we are rolling through Pottsville, Pennsylvania.  Home of the oldest brewery, and may I add, some of the tastiest adult beverages, in America, Yeungling Brewery. Established in 1829′.  Tachoblog would like to add that if the Yeungling Brewery would like us to test their wares we’d be more than happy to do so…

…And here’s the promised video View From The Cab.  Darkstaff shot it ‘trying out a new app called Motion Pictures. We’re driving west on I-80 in Iowa, ending with a pull into the fuel island at the Pilot in Walcott, Iowa’…

…’I am at the west side genesis of Interstate 90. The highway that rolls clear across the country to Boston’.

Given that Tachoblog’s knowledge of Interstate 90 is zero, we had to look up where it started to work out where Darkstaff was.  It’s Seattle by the way.

Doing this we learnt that Interstate 90 is the longest Interstate Highway in the United States at 3,099.07 miles (4,987.47 km).   And that it’s the northernmost coast-to-coast interstate.

Now we head south and join Amishtrucker in Texas and the first of our bridges.  He’s crossing the beautiful Colorado River at Bastrop. The old bridge on the right is still being used as a walking trail.  This beautiful scene is about a mile from where the Bastrop fires started this past summer’…

…’Olde Town Bastrop. This is just past the river, just past the old downtown and a beautiful street, again about a mile from where the fire started’…

View From The Cab Logo19 427x62Finally we catch up with Surfingtrucker and two more bridges.  The first is the George Washington Bridge ‘in light traffic due to it being Veteran’s Day’…

…’Crossing the Throg’s Neck Bridge onto Long Island’…

…Finally we reach Surfingtrucker’s final destination in West Babylon, New York.  He says this is a ‘Typical hurry up and wait customer’.
