          when you parked this way ,it issn't so great to sleep.
          watching a dvd it was oke to lay down with my head on the steer side,but when i go to sleep it wassn't that great anymore.
          your feet higher than your head isn't that comfortable.
          so turned around so my feet were at the steerside now.
          a little better,but not much,i was sleeping now on a slide,every time i slide to the lower side,and not at the normal way in my bed,needles to say that i didn't sleep wel

          this morning (6.45am) when the loggers truck came and we discussed how we can do it,,we decided to hook up a chain at the front containerpost and lift the container with chassis up and i drive forwarts.
          in 10 seconds i was on the street again.
          ends well.
          all i had the do after loading,was bring the container to Antwerp

          a trip of 405km



          but i drove via Holland ,not the green line from Aken to Luik ,but from Aken to holland over the E314 to Belgium and then back to the green line.
          about 15 km less to drive
          drop off by Antwerp,pick up another one ,another place,drop that one off at Rotterdam,pick up another one ,another place and went to home.8pm back home

            sometimes place enough



            another not even place for a car ,because of sleeping drivers which park there for the night,and also think that they are the only truckdrivers on the world,
            meaning taking the place they want,the other time ,in this case trailers parked from the market and fair in giessen.

            leaving a gap were no one dare to park in.
            excapt one stupid driver from Giessen

                  For sure you know the TV series "Outback Truckers".
                  http://www.discovery.nl/programmas/outback-truckers/

                  I did not think that such an episode can happen with a Dutchman in Germany, but you did it, man.

                  I see, Germany is killing you. No allowance to drive on the roads with the heavy truck (but looking at your later pictures, there might be some sense in this rule), spoiling your health with Currywurst and driving like Max Verstappen practising for the Rallye Monte Carlo 2018. Finally changing containers at a very conspirative place out in the woods. I will not ask what the hell you were doing there???!!! Why this place??

                  Anyway. I had fun reading and thank you so much for posting. And i am full of respect for your parking abilities. Will help a lot if you have to deliver in Amsterdam-Centrum. If they let you in with 40+ tons...

                    yes ,i know that serie,but not following it ,just stay tuned when it's on tv.
                    the thing is with those programs ,there is Always a problem.
                    if it's about trucks, vessels,airplanes,tunneling,there is Always a problem.

                    the load was in this case within Dutch limits (50tons) with al of the axles i have the axle pressure would be oke ,also for german roads,
                    but there is a limit,so sometimes you win,sometimes you loose.

                    looking at the smartphone at those images there is also a small video of focusing before the click.
                    then you see it wasn't that fast,but it looks good at the images.

                    i didn't change the containers,i had to load those logs.
                    we do it many times ,in Holland ,Germany ,france ,Belgium, just were the costumer want us to load.
                    the loggerstruck collect them in the Woods and bring them to the roads,our trucks are not capeble to drive in to the Woods.
                    the loggers have some places in the Woods were there is place enough for loading it into the containers.
                    with the gps they have coordinates ,which they send to our office,the place them in our system ,we press navigate and where the flag on our screen is,is the loading place.

                    uyes we go into those city centers aswel,but not with those weights,40 or 50 tons.
                    mostly for people that immagrate and load the containers with there households.
                    but where it is we go there,
                    sometimes i need to get a parkingpass for the day,because it is in the pedestrian area .
                    we only can get in if they lowered a big cilinder into the street.
                    i had be staying the whole day for loading a container,on a Sunny hot day,icecream shops everywhere.
                    had a great day

                    to get it between the cars i had to go for,-backwarts for 5-6 times,its now about 50 cm,if you staning in a angle you dont even have those cm,then it is about 25 cm

                    but i can't show you where it was,
                    google take away google earth on internet explorer,if you want it back i had to go over to chrome.
                    are there many changes in use?
                    even worst,al the pinpoints i had made on GE are lost now aswel

                  Thisj -you are nor having a comfortable run; I just hope things improve for you!

                    it wasn't not that bad,the trip was a nice one,but the way it had to be done.
                    they know i don't want the make those trips,but just because when i keep my mouth shut,they gave me more like this,and i'll be away the whole week.
                    i had done that for 7,5 years,went away Sunday eve and could be home between Friday afternoon till daterday afternoon.
                    with the possabilety that i had to change trailer in Rotterdam (i was riding with ferrytrailers between Rotterdam and UK,) un Sunday morning when the ferry arrived.
                    it did happend that i came home saterday around noon,the trailer i need again came in Sunday morning,so to Rotterdam on Sunday morning,change trailers,go home and went away Sunday evening.
                    not much of weekend left,for newlyweds.
                    but i enjoy the work. (then)
                    but stil love to make those kind of trips.
                    but not every day and every week. so sstttttt.LOL

                      You are the best! And loading in the city with icecream is for sure better than in germany with currywurst. Not healthier, by the way, but nicer.
