          some images from the last weeks ,some with a camera,thers with a smartphone.

          sometimes we come at places,while there issn't even place enough.
          like here discharging catering refrigerators.
          container at the dock,cab on the street.

            can you drive it inside driver?
            sure,but does it fit?



            nearly,just nearly,but this was loaded,
            and with the truck air suspencion pumped up and the chassis with empty air suspencion.

                    i had to disconnect the rear part in Oss and discharge the front container in Venlo.
                    when empty pick up the one in Oss and drop them at 2 places at Rotterdam at the Maasvlakte.
                    afetr that pick up a 40ft container for discharge at Oirschot near Eindhoven.
                    and that at 5,30pm.
                    oh boy,that i wont get on time,and lets hope it's on pallets.
                    801 boxes.

                    after 3 times in a trafficjam i arrived there at 6.35pm
                    lets hope they don't want it anymore at this time.
                    guess what?they where happy to see me.darn.
                    ''can you please drive it in front of our door driver,else we have to walk a lot each time.''
                    eehhhh!!lets try.
                    and i did it,but after the neighbour across the stree mover her car 1 meter further on there yard,and i as cutting here tree a bit with the cab.



                    and i feel me a british driver,had to step out on the right (wrong) side.

                        It sounds like all you needed were some angry people blocked in the street beeping their horns to add a little pressure.

                      darn, loose boxes with bush trimmers,chainsaws and more stuff.

                            yes,but the kids nowadays have al a mobile Phone with a expence contract with they can call all day on
                            or textmessage or whatts app.
                            there issn't much radiotraffic on the cb anymore.

                          above the swithpanel there is a locker where i store extra papers like freightletters etc,and some supplies like bread ,crackers,instant soup etc



                          noy much here

                          the toll collect device
                          7 assen=7 axles
                          geen dienst= no service
                          means the truck is a 7 axles truck,but never change it,because the toll we have to pay is for 4 the same as for 7 axles,and i have never less that 4 axles.
                          no service is of i'm not in Germany,it's only for Germany.
                          my boss have to pay for every km we drive in Germany,depents on what engine you have of class of envoirement polosion the HC is a class 5 engine,the younghest is now class 6.
                          you can pay less p\km.a class 4 pays more p/km on toll.
                          but it's not that you get a bill afterwards,but my boss had to open an account in Germany and for every truck he had to take care that there is a hundreds even maybe some thousend euros
                          on the account.

                          below the collect device,the CB



                          in Rotterdam or when we see each other we go to channel 13

                            beside the cb and toll collect there is a storage place for papers.i use it for jobs which are finished and info papers.
                            beside that there is a cd holder.
                            in the closet above the microwave,mugs coffee pads,and canned fish. (herring in tomatosauce,before anyone would ask)
                            they have to make a gap in the grey panel to fit the microwave.



                            on the right side



                            lowest storage
                            some chips and the cd boxes
                            in the closet the playstation for playing dvd's and the boxes of them,nothing more.
                            i want to make an extra floor in it,so i can place the ps2 higher,and i can use the place under it
                            on the left side between the wall there is a mirror,never use it.
                            i know, i Always look good.
