Tachoblog’s View From The Cab – 30.3.12

We thought last week’s View From The Cab was good – and it was – but this week’s look through the Tachoblog Tribe’s windscreens might be even better!  Have a look and tell us what you think.

View From The Cab Logo37 427x62We’ve got loads of Views to get through in this week’s View From The Cab.  We’ll be going to several places in America as well as to Ireland, Australia and Wales.  And we’ll be welcoming a new member to the Tachoblog Tribe too.

So let’s get started.

We begin at the Flyin J in Tucumcari, New Mexico with DriverChrisMc.  He says, ‘not sure why but I always have to take a picture of that mountain. Every time’…

View From The Cab Logo37 427x62Back over to America now where we catch up for the first time in a little while with Amishtrucker – who still needs a new windscreen! icon smile    He says that ‘it is wildflower season in Texas. Roadsides, medians and whole fields are covered with flowers such as the bluebonnet, Indian paintbrush and other flowers.

‘This was taken along Texas 111 near Yoakum, Texas and shows a herd of cattle grazing in a field filled with bluebonnets’…

So did you think this week’s View From The Cab was better than last week’s?

Tachoblog can’t decide – both posts have been great.

Our thanks to the Tachoblog Tribe for sending in their Views.  Wonder if we can have an even better post next week?

Would you like to be part of that – or any other View From The Cab?  If you’re a driver then you’re welcome to join in.

All you have to do is is email your View(s) 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.
