      Hi janihudi
      Have read your story and am glad you were well.
      For an unfair treatment you received from the police, they should rather thank you instead of blaming you for the accident.
      It is now my clear meaning in this case.
      Best wishes from
      Bengt Domben

        thanks.
        it's seven against one,when seven told the same story and the lonely one another story ,it's simple for a simple minded cop.

      Think positive, you will get a real truck again, no Scania (do i suppose right), and Ivy's Suffolk coffee mug survived as well! Those things sometimes go strange, we had a similar experiece years ago, ended up in the guarding rail of the highway, when a truck began to overtake, while we were on the left lane. Similar story, similar police officers...

        Yes nowadays, using Merzedes engines and parts. I think that the "chassis frame" is of own design.
        Before they were based on Cummins engines and own cabs, but that was before the big problems in the company.

        Yes chassis and axles are there own.
        But didn't known that they used mercedes cab and engines.

      Yes Ivy's mug survived, otherwise i didn't dare to place those images. And i had to order online a new one
      HUH!
      Anyway, I've got things to say to you, young man..

        I can only agree with you Svein.
        I feel the same, when seeing the kids nowadays.
        But unfortionally with age come also some downsizes.
        Eyes don't see what i had used to see.
        And with my way of live , i have staring to keep up whats gooing on in my body.
        I did just visit a docter for a blood test, didt came out very wel.
        I'm in the last green part under the line to be worrying.
        The next stop wil be above that kine in the first yellow field. Even that wassn't to worry much about, but it was the last call before i would need medicins.
        To lower that level i should eat less and some sporting would even better.
        But i don't eat that much, not even junkfood that much anymore.
        And the only sport i do is transport.
        I hate sport , beside when i can waych it and only car sports.
        But i had to do something to lose some weight.
        So when at home early i stepped on the bicycle and make a tour about 15km. And after a while i did it faster and easier. In the beginning it was between 45 and 50 minutes.later is was 39.22 minutes. And still have the breath in my.
        But now when dark comes in early the fun of cycling is over.
        So started to swim.
        The first day. Half dead over the rope after 20 tracks.
        But soon it became 30 rest 10 minutes and 10 more.
        Later 40 rest a while and 20 more.
        While resting the supervisor came to ask me of i was allright, just sitting there half dead.
        A week later 60 tracks without rest.
        A week later 80 witout rest.
        Past sunday 90 tracks without rest.
        1 minut over 1 track.
        So all in all i noticed i feel better .got more breath,
        Loose weight. From 109 in may to 98kg now.
        With Christmis i go back for a new bloodcheck and see if it did work.
        If not i can go back to junkfood again.
        Because.i feeling better , it would say beeing happyer too.
        Every tankstation i stay far away from the snackcorner. I don't like that.
        There are days that i hardly eat something.
        1 or 2 slices breaf a day and at home diner,
        Sometimes not even that
        I set.my goal at 85 kg, and as easy the first 10kg goes , it stands still now, even after all the swimming.
        I want to do 120 tracks in one time.
        Something crazy between my ears.
        The new wayerway in rotterdam delta is 1.5km wide as i showed in some threads.60 tracks is 1.5km.
        So i swim it " over", but then i'm just on the concrete blocks of the breakwater. So jave to swim back again. Makes 120 tracks.
        Yes is bullsh1t.but i need to have a goal.
        Also bullsh1t , the stream will flow me right to the UK when i'm 10 meters away from the each.

        Right, I'm getting ready to stand on the beach, hold up my great big flag, and wave you in.

      Ivy, I just was stopping at that specific picture and asking myself: "why is my mug in Thijs' truck?"

      Thijs, you wrote abut seven people, but there were only two "enemy" trucks? Maybe you will have to intall one of those Russian traffic cams on your dashboard, then you will have a document???

      Sorry about the small cabin! But you did not want to to the "long runs" anymore! And your boss has to count the numbers. Maybe you will have to to some extra trips to cover the price difference? Or is the also a difference in maximum load capacity? In this case you will have bad cards.

        No no,were 2 cars, not trucks.
        My boss had bought many cheap dashcams,though bw
        Een many times at the office, they didn't gave me one.
        Glad too.
        If you onow my truck,every thing is or in the middle, or 2 things on. Oth side of the middle.
        Rubberduck in the middle.
        Michelin mascottes both side of th rubberduck.
        Rubberduck lightbox in both corners.
        My 6 babes the middle is between babe 3 and 4
        So i have to place a dashcam in the middle,or i got to have 2 dashcams. LOL
        Boss was glad he bought those, but he wasn't that happy anymore when i told him no one gave me a cam. Even now i don't have one, and even so i had seen my boss several times now.
        Stil no dashcam.

        The difference in cab is the hight above.
        Wideness is the same. But the lockers above are smaller , there doesn't even fit a microwave.
        Bit even on short runs a big cab is better,more storage place, and almost every week one or two nights in the cab, so some livingspace wouldend be so bad too
        Yes price is everything, but this cab still looks as new inside. No holes or whatever. Even outside even looks good. And i'm by then 17 years an employe there, so thats also a number that should count.
        Load max is the same.27tons truck.
        Even with a narrow low cab , the chassis stays the same. Wil place images when at home. Can't do that from smartphone.

      I should have bought one for myself as well, then we would each have mementos of the Three Muskateers' escapades!

      That microwave has a little memory, hasn't it, of going on a trip to Ralf's B&B at Loevstein.
      Of course it looks as if it were new inside and good outside - look at all the work you did on the inside Thijs, to make it a bit homely. I remember how you spent so much time on making the little table and staining it to look like walnut burr. As to outside, well, you put a great deal of effort into that, as well, getting rid of dirt and rust and with hours of repainting the wheels. All that work has to be taken into account when the time comes for selling - the boss should be extremely grateful. That plus your time with the firm must surely count for a lot.

        that was a mobile fridge Ivy to the R&B

        maybe it's better if you would be my boss when there have to be a new truck ordered.
        the like it when you wel maintain your truck and spending every free hour at it,but when it's about selling price they forget you,and all the time you spend.

        Oh, if I were the boss I'd order the best Merc. available for you, fit a dashcam (or two) plus an extra cam to fit outside on a pole (adjustable for low bridges, of course) so that films of the rear would show the idiots trying to overtake. Then I would give you a couple of weeks extra holiday so that you could spend the time getting it in order - curtains, proper table (if your present one didn't fit), lights to go all over the place - wherever you could fix them, new cushions, new decals and a year's supply of paint for touching up the wheels, etc.
        'Owz at?

        When can i start Ivy?
        I would get a great boss.
        The seller can make a tender??? For one, won' t say if he take that . But if everything works well,then maybe. I just pm him for which kind of cab and engine he can make a tender, so waiting for his answer.
        Still in doubt if boss agrees for a name if a new name or i keep " Highway Cruiser " so i can use the vessel again.

      YOUNG MAN!!!!??????
      i' m 54.
      I'm starting to be a oldtimer
      Ye gods and little fishes - what does that make me???

        Wa-hey!

      the differences between the cabs .
      the one that seems to be ordered (left) and the one i want (right)



      the left side ,the ''small''cab ,named bigspace,
      the right side the ''big'' cab ,named gigaspace
      the only difference is about 13 cm hight extra to the roof,you can see it at the antenne



      at this drawing you can see it better,also by the messerments which are addet

      and here you can see the extra roof,by coverd the bigspace at the roofline.



      so just 11cm. but much more space inside.
      bigger lockers,more room when standing up ,
      and most inportant, LOOKS SO MUCH BETTER

        So what you want is the Gigaspace version? But the quoted passage above the image seems to reverse that. I'm confused.
