    Life On The Road

    8 hours non stop ? That's a lot to me and I'd guess it could get boring as fook on the roads over there, there was a way to wangle it in the UK where we could do 9 hours driving with only a 15 minute break but I'm sure they closed that loophole or maybe I'm wrong ? I see in your last post you were waiting for paperwork, that brought back memories, bad ones at that. Get tipped or loaded quick and think you're on a winner and then the long dreaded wait for the paperwork. What weight can you legally carry over there as I'm assuming you have tri axle trailers and unit and is your trailer a fridge or just a box ? I enjoyed the job when I first started it in 1989 as generally the owner / manager had done the job and knew what could be done and what couldn't but as time went on these jobs went to the university graduates whose only delivery experience was a paper round as a kid. H+S in the early days was non existant and you had to rely on common sense, that's all changed now. I'm on a Facebook page for HGV drivers and I honestly wonder how we managed it in the old days with just maps and A-Z's to find where we were heading and no phones, I see questions on there like "help, I'm going from Leeds to Kent, what's the best route, are there any low bridges ? " FFS. You're right about the trucks being too electronic nowadays, it's the same everywhere, they're great until something goes wrong and then the real problems start, the last truck I had in the UK was fully automatic, it was good until reversing when you just needed that bit more clutch control as it was nearly always all or nothing !

    As an ex HGV driver in England I'm finding this Blog really interesting. Are you controlled by Tacho's and drivers hours over there or is it quite loose ? Keep it coming, would love to see photos of your truck and out on the road.

    RIP Kevin Beattie

    I learnt something today, I honestly would have bet big money he got more than 9 caps.
  4. Well those didn't last for the full 7 days ! (Maybe not banned as I first thought ?)

    UEFA Champions League 2016/2017

    And who beat them in that final ?. The mighty Nottingham Forest. That sort of final will never happen again as long as humans have a hole in their arse.

    That's about the only one I'd disagree with you, I reckon if Spurs play like they can then they'll go through along with Leverkusen.

    Possibly that the EPL champions get into pot 1 automatically ?? I was surprised about it myself.
