    also the corner posts are turned, those are made from thick steel,they have to carry al the containers above them.
    containers are stacked only at the 4 corners,and the container on the floor can handle 9 loaded containers on top of it,,some even 11

    but this summer the days of the HC were almost over ,and mine too.

    driving to rotterdam,back from the port i was driving to the merc garage, where i spend my nights when not comming home.
    at empty roads it went wel.
    almost at the exit i was passed by a belgian car,with close behind him a Dutch car.

    when the Belgium was a few meters in front of me ,i was full in the brakes,and the Dutch car could only avoid a collision to go also full in the brakes and turn to the right,
    WHERE I DROVE.
    i went also full in the brakes and steer to the right.
    meanwhile the cab turned over to the front full in his suspension and










    then i got a push from the back.
    the load of 17 tons of iron pipes came forwards sliding in the container
    wainting to sliding further into the cab i was in death fears of that moment.
    i didn't wrecks the cars, i missed them all,but this was inside the cab,which i even noticed fallen down while waiting for big bang



    the rubberduck lightbox was turned the other way
    coffemaker not on his place



    the mivrowave don't belongs on the floor,
    the coffee mug don't stands there normaly too

    'the days of the ''Highway Cruiser'' are numbered,i wil get a new one around March /April.
    i don't want that,but she wil be 7 years this summer,and not allowed anymore to drive at the Maasvlakte 2 port.
    he ordered 10 new trucks of a brand which i can named here,because it's junk.
    he knows i don't like those rolling junk and is looking now for what to order for me.
    Daf or Mercedes
    i told him to nuy a merc again.
    it would be something like this,but then lefthand drive



    but i could be a daf too



    but in more than one of these 2 i'm not intrested.

    well kind of,
    if he comes with a Peterbilt or Kenworth i will take that too,as long its a truck with a nose/torpedo

    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.
