    to keep you updated about the mid table

    fineshed the plank, meaning painted it with clear varnisch, not realy needed, but it's just plywood, coffeemaker above it,do the math
    that the plate is to small ,is of i had to fould the pluche around it and need 5mm arround the whole plate




    and then the doubts started..
    where will i stop the pluche ?
    only the wood was the plan, and over the steel plate and than stop,also the black plastic part in front would be left out
    thus i cutted it this way

    best regards Thijs

      it is just not ''that''





      the reason to left it without the pluch, is of that i wont pull it away every time when i want to sip a coffee or soda

          but not happy with the rounding on the right cupholder,
          also the right corner below is a to sharp corner,must be a round corner.
          take it home with me and cutted al the glue to make it better

              It's better that you come to Holland.
              I got my tools here and you got a nice trip.
              Though i don't know where to build something , it's a lot smaller than a truck

            the past weeks i'm flying like hell, into Germany to load trees.
            all over the world there is a war go on ,a war we hardly can win.
            a battle against bast beetles, millions and millions of trees suffering of the beetles.
            search at google for more info

            we are loading about 150 containers a week , but we can do it by ourselfs, we hire many extra trucks in.
            and there are more companies buying the trees and they have trucking companies aswel.

            we load them in or near the forrest and drive them to Antwerp, where the containers wil fumigated for the remaining beetles. and shipped to Asia

            this week it was hurry up.
            discharged a container in Leverkusen Germany ,dropped it off in Neuss and went do Duisburg to pick one up.
            but i was early and drove to the loadingspot for the next day, but didn't liked that place,to narrow for my chassis.
            so i went to a grossery nearby and wanted to stay there overnight.
            for some goodwill (i hope) i did some shopping there, but first a coffee with a salt pretsel on there terras



            and after the coffee i got me a shopping car and went inside

                He-he-he !!!

              after some time walking around inside the grossery i had enough.
              the fridge issn't that big in the merc



              stowed all away ,hang up the tv and wanted look some episodes of comedy'' it ain't half hot mom''
              but i could stay here very nice for the night



              NOT
              the came to me and said that i had to go, parking there for shopping is alright, not for overnight parking.
              i said that i had bought there for almost 22 euro,
              didn't help, i had to go

              (behind the parking of aldi you see a brown field and a green field, between the brown and green field there was the gravel path into the forrest)

                i think that the laptop had ti's best of time, uploading a pic issn't a problem,copy them is a crime.
                so i stop with it, 4 attemps for a pic are 3 to many.

                  but already 3 other collegues were arrived and said we can stand here so come over.
                  i told them i had an other type of chassis and that that place is to narrow for me.
                  no it's possable and we can all look tomorrow if there would be a problem
                  so i went over parked there and had a graet night ,you know truckerstalk

                  to be sure, i had parked it close to the didge



                  we came from that right path ,bent left and drove straight backwarts,al 4 of us. but irained that night, and in the forrest water came down lik bullets on my roof

                    It looked a bit too close to the ditch from what I can see. But you obviously survived. Luck of the devil - as usual

                    and went even closer to get it around the corner

                  it is a small corner to take, but i had to go there, the signpost in the middle was an extra obsticle



                  with a evergreen container is a less and less ever green forrest

                    wel it's time to try



                    after 6 attempt to turn the corner i managed it, tough the signs on the signpole take every wave of the last 6 meter of the container.

                    and they had to wait

                      wellllllll ,many Germans have some overweight, an extra kilometer walking won't harm them. LOL LOL LOL

                        so i drove back to Antwerp, changed containers and went back to Buchenau Eiterfeld in Germany.
                        at the end of the day i arrived there at 22.20pm worked that day 16 hours, drove more than 13 hours and 955km.

                        the loading crew waked me at 6 but i had 7am to load, take the other truck first.
                        but once awake i can't go back anymore.
                        after a wile the loadmaster came back to me and told hem to get in the car soon because of the first truck couldend make it the way up.
                        so i can see what to expeckt so i can tell that to the other driver.
                        and it went steeply.
                        so we had to start with a speed ,it went 2km up.
                        the only reason that there was a path was there were built windturbines on the mountain

                        the road / path we had to go



                        and that looks like this from inside
