Darkstaff has some good news, ‘Beyond this gate, my new job waits.  This is my view on my first morning at my new job, pulling tankers out of the terminal in Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania. I’m now a local driver! Home every night’…

View From The Cab Logo28 427x62One person that won’t have driven in snow – and probably not hail either – is Vic H.  After all it’s not winter in New Zealand.  Vic was ‘was heading south on State Highway 1 the other morning and approaching the Atiamuri Bridge across the Waikato River there was a bit of early morning mist as is often the case here. In fact it is a bit of a standing joke if you are driving in this area in the early morning. Another driver or the despatcher will phone and the conversation will go like this:

“Where are you?”

“No idea, I can’t see a thing.”

“OK, you must be in Atiamuri then.”

…’Across the bridge and heading up into the rising sun, still unable to see much’…

…Finally from Vic and the last View in View From The Cab ‘tThen the mist clears but a few kilometres further on there is the steam from the Wairakei geothermal power station to contend with; not at all bad this morning but it can be in some weather conditions’.
