It might be Friday the 13th but there’s no bad luck when it comes to View From The Cab – our weekly look through the Tachoblog Tribe’s windscreens.

So join us as we travel to America, New Zealand, Germany and Sweden.

But before we head off Tachoblog would like to thank the Tachoblog Tribe for taking the time to take some pictures and send them in to us.

First up this week is Amishtrucker and here he is ‘starting out across the John F. Kennedy Memorial Causeway coming from Corpus Christi towards South Padre Island. You can see the bridge in the distance that crosses the Gulf Intracoastal Waterway.  There is more history behind this waterway than I had imaged just from driving over it here and there (Corpus Christi and Houston). It is part of a Intracoastal Waterway System that stretches from the southern tip of Texas all along the Gulf Coast and then up the East Coast to somewhere in New Jersey’…

It remains a popular destination all summer. Again a link to Wikipedia and some information I had no idea about!  Padre Island is the world’s longest barrier Island? Yes.   And it is all part of the state of Texas’…
