Welcome to this week’s View From The Cab, where the Tachoblog Tribe send us in pictures of what they can see through their windscreens.

As ever this week’s View From The Cab comes from all over the world and Tachoblog is very grateful to everyone that sent in their Views.

So let’s start with Heydriver and Goldie who could see where ‘Old Glory hangs from the West Tower of the George Washington Bridge [Tachoblog thinks this is the bridge that goes between New York City and New Jersey]‘.

View From The Cab Logo1 427x62Back in the USA, Amishtrucker was ‘merging onto I37 north from Texas 234 at Edroy, Texas.  I noticed that the corn field on the right is brown and ready to harvest. Not sure if it is really ready or if it is just so dry here that it dried up. We are having a drought overall but spots of the area get a shower now and then. Also some of these fields are irrigated.

‘Growing up as a farm kid in the north (Michigan/Indiana) I am not quite used to the fact yet that here in the south the corn harvest comes in the summertime, and not later in the year like it did there’…

View From The Cab Logo1 427x62Last week Vic H ‘didn’t get much chance to take photos because of the rain; well, this week I had to contend with the Chilean volcano’s eruption which sent an ash cloud across to New Zealand. In this first photo, taken while I was loading up at a winery in Hastings, the early morning sun is trying to force its way through the haze caused by the volcanic ash’…

…’It eventually succeeded, as you can see from this photo taken a couple of hours later as I was entering the Manawatu Gorge on the way to Wellington and the Inter-Island ferry’…

‘A bit like the bit of verse about the fleas, I suppose – I’m sure you know the one:  Big fleas have little fleas upon their backs to bite ‘em And little fleas have littler fleas, and so on, ad infinitum’.

View From The Cab Logo1 427x62Finally we catch up with DriverGeoff who’s been loading his trailer but he ‘still needs to put a car in’.  We don’t know where this was though so if anyone can tell Tachoblog then please do.

As you’ll no doubt have noticed, this week we’ve used the ‘View From The Cab Splitter’ that RandyNose kindly created for us.  What do you think, does it make View From The Cab easier to read?  Please let us know.
