Let’s leave the snow and cold behind as we travel to New Zealand where Vic H ‘had a trip from Auckland to Clandeboye and back this week; where on earth is that, you may ask. Clandeboye is near Timaru, on the east coast of the South Island. The first day was from Auckland to Wellington, across on the ferry to Picton, at the top of the South Island’…

…’and across the bridge over the Waiau River to Clandeboye, about 1300km from Auckland. Waiau actually means swirling or turbulent water and although there isn’t much evidence of that in this photo the river can get pretty wild after heavy rain’.

After missing a few week’s View From The Cab we’re delighted to welcome Amishtrucker back.  His first two Views are ‘from the Bastrop fire Area along US 71 just east of Bastrop, Texas’…

…’There is new life, there is rebuilding, there is hope in the air for the future and for this year. We have had a lot of rain over the winter and things are looking up’…

…’Along IH10 near Seguin where road construction is still in progress.  The overpass you can see is coming from the extension to TX 130 that will bring the bypass from around Austin Texas all the way down to IH10 where it will join right here. It is a toll road but for us living on the east side, we can go north towards Dallas and never get close to the Austin traffic anymore.  Probably not a really great thing for trucks as I imagine the toll is plenty high but it does bypass the Austin metro area and all that mess’…

…’And this is a shot going in towards Houston on IH10 in heavy traffic, in fog and running alongside a load of recycled cardboard. The shot looks like it is out in the country with all the trees but it is between Katy and Highway 6 at some spot where there are still some trees.  Actually Houston has a lot of trees inside the metro area. These look like they are waiting for spring to clothe them with leaves. Have a good week, everyone!   See ya!’.
