Welcome to Tachoblog’s View From The Cab – our weekly peek through the windscreens of the Tachoblog Tribe.

We’re back to normal this week after last week’s birthday celebrations, so let’s not mess about and get on with it.

This week we’re hopping back and forth from America as you’ll see…

We start by joining LakewoodLoon who ‘ran into an unarmed New York Assault Truck on Highway 5′.

Over in New Zealand Vic H has had a busy day and says that he knows ‘we get lots of sky shots on VFTC, but not normally from me so it must be my turn.  This week we have been carrying wine from a winery in the Awatere Valley, south of Blenheim in the South Island, to a bottling plant in Hawke’s Bay in the North Island and on one of the days the sky was quite spectacular at both ends of the day’ [Tachoblog's already seen the pictures and we couldn't agree more!]…

Now click below for more from Vic H and the Tachoblog Tribe…

…’The two sunrise shots were taken early in the morning as I was loading up in the Awatere Valley’…

…’The small black dot you may be able to see to the left of the trees in the first photo is actually a hawk (an Australian Harrier) as you can see in this enlarged portion of that photo’…

…’The two sunset shots were taken just before I arrived in Hawke’s Bay’.

Back to America now where we find Darkstaff looking at Black Pine Mountain in Idaho…

…Yuck! It’s all he could say when he woke up in Nebrasksa – ‘That and a few choice 4-letter words’.  The extra shame is that Frosty Fenders finished last week and this picture could have been a contender for the title!

To Sweden then where bergmanman was ‘cruising RV-50 to Falun.  Really nice weather outside’.

Finally we head to America once more.  Amishtrucker sent this ‘view OF my little cab parked behind HEB grocery store in Mathis, Texas. A HEB truck is on the left in the dock’.

And that’s all the Views for this week.  Tachoblog is, as always, really grateful to the Tachoblog Tribe for sending in their Views.

One piece of good news that we heard this week – that you’ll probably want to know too – is that Heydriver and Goldie should soon be back with us.  Heydriver’s been recovering from a heart op and is now desperate to get out there again.  The only hold up now is that the regulations in the USA mean that he has to wait just a little bit longer.

Before Tachoblog signs off, we’d like to remind you that you’re more than welcome to join the Tachoblog Tribe and with VFTC if you’d like too.  All you have to do is email your Views to vftc@tachoblog.com or send a tweet starting #vftc to @tachoblog, or post them on Tachoblog’s Facebook Wall.   Please remember include a line or two of text that says, if nothing else, where the picture was taken.
