    I had to Google that one. We call it Pick-Up-Sticks, though a much better name used to be Spillikins. How many trailers per truck did you have for them?!!!!

    You know quite well what I mean so stop wriggling, green lights don't come into it. One must always be aware of the distance one's vehicle will still travel after one jams on the brakes, mustn't one? You only just made it, not good enough, you weren't allowing enough distance from the vehicle in front.

    THANK YOU IVY ,FRIEND.
    so you like an image my collegue had taken,anf that calls herself a friend.
    As if I knew it was someone else's photo!!!!! Tell your colleague that Ivy likes his photo very much.

    i was laying on the floor of the cab,so i wasn't insight,but with the mirror effect is was not needed to do.
    So that's where you were when you nearly had a smash, was it?

    the is a problem about taken images of a bird,there is no engine in it.and i hand't take the camera in the forrest,only the Phone,which al images were taken with.
    I didn't say you had to use a camera, the mobile would do.
    Talk about excuses!

    we had walked into the forrest to see if it was safe to go there when they asked,but after 400 meters we disidet not to go,we specially i would damaged the truck .(the tank)

    i stayed there to warn the cranedriver when bikers or cars want o pass,so that they would get a log over there heads.

    That'll teach you to look in your truck book and check out the minimum breaking distance. And to stop driving with one fingertip on the wheel and the other hand taking photos. It could have been an almighty smash-up, and then who would correct my Dutch?
    I like those photos in the forest, they are a great change from docksides. #666.1 is a really lovely picture. "Wannabees toothpicks" While they are loading, why don't you wander off into the trees and photograph some birds??? Make good use of your time, man.
    And those "against the sun" images. I like #662.2 very much, and #662.4 has a dreamy quality to it, quite at variance with the subject.

    it seems that we have a new client,for that timber work.
    the same timbertruck as last week was loading,and just as last week,he was stock in the forrest.

    the week started like beeing in hell.
    3,40 wake up call to get the containers for Breda,while i was driving there in the city a car brake heavely the second car too,but i was just to late,but what do you want with 65 tons.
    step out of the cab and the license plate lays on the road,further noting to see,just as the other car,it was just a friendly kiss.
    only the plate holder was damaged.



    in the afternoon went to the garage they gave me a new one,and as new again.
    so a little luck after all that day

    what the heck!!!
    i was searching for a video about how they load the logs,and i ran to 1 which was loaden on 1 of our trucks.
    not that you see that truck,only the back of the chassis.
    btw,it's this truck



    it's red because of it was from a guy which bought this truck from a canceld sale and was like this,without the name ,with the help of tsi,but went ill ,got bankrupt and while the truck was bought by us (he least the truck from my boss),my boss take it back.
    but this is an old pic,truck is driving his last time now for us,more drivers had driven it now,so a lot of damages too.

    ah that way,i thought you was reffering to the lumber/timber truck.
    to use a standard container is the cheapest way,it's just a steel box ,all around.
    using a flatbed they need to place steel poles at the side ,prefenting the logs for falling off the flatbed,they also have to strap them with steelcables or Ratchet straps.
    for using a OT (don't stands for ''off topic'' ) a Open Top container, the same steel box,exept the roof,which is covered by a sheet and steel bars.(light material,they are just there for keeping the sheet flat) but issn't that strong like a standard box.if they load it,and the side bend you never get the bars on the foorback and probally also not the sheet back in a way that you can place the line back in.
    so this was the best and cheapest (remember,it was a dutch company) way to transport them,open the doors .load the logs, close the doors and goodbay.no strapping the logs or cover the container again
Working...
