        Recently i had the opportunity to drive a truck again. Older people may drive with their normal license trucks up to 7.5 tons. Fortunately i am old enough. The last time i had a similar experience is about 20 years ago, so it was very thrilling. The route was more than 300 km mostly over narrow and curvy roads in the black forest. I was fetching wood for the company and my own pupose in the weekend cottage. I was driving 7 hours including loading and unloading. I took only these two pictures, as we were unloading wood for the new floor at our weekend cottage. What a day! A lot of people do this kind of trip with their motorbikes or classic car convertibles. We did it with a truck!

          Well, we took only three belts, one for two hooks, that was not the perfect way. 3 belts for 2t are enough anyway but you should not go through two hooks. We are still just amateurs. But we will learn and improve.

        Well, well, well.
        Hey, Thijs, you'd better look out now, our Ralf is catching up on you! Next time you go into the forest to collect wood, you'll find him already there loading up. That was a good trip, Ralf, and it must have felt a little strange at first with that extra length and weight behind you. I doubted whether I am allowed to drive a lorry, and having just checked my driving licence, that is so. So in this country you'd not have been able to drive your truck. It must have been quite an exciting experience after not having done it for so long. Well done!

          I would have found that very interesting when I took my driving test back in 1968 - providing it was taken off-road. We have plenty of old war-time airfields in East Anglia which could be used for such lessons. But then you didn't see the stupidly unthinking driving as you get these days. I last drove on a motorway in 2010 when I went down to Devon, it was one of several West Country journeys I made about that time and I used to thoroughly enjoy it.
          Now, much as I have always loved driving, I wouldn't dare chance it, it is bad enough on our normal local roads.
