    For the non-Norwegians here on CV; A Norwegian "Mile" = 10 Km., not a statute mile (1,632 m.) That gives it another perspective.

    My ride(s) can be seen elsewhere, but I just want to post what was my job-ride for about 11 years ago...., when I as 'janihudi' was a road train driver...
    I see 'janihudi' drives a DAF semi, but I drove a Scania 580 and a Volvo FH12 between Oslo and Kristiansund...., up and down..., up and down, up and down..., the same 60 miles every other day. This was clearly not for me. The rules of work and rest here in Norway are a joke, as the driver load and unload in the daytime and drive at night. Who's going to do the job otherwise...? In between all that, there might be some hours of sleep, but who's able to sleep when the Government tells you to....?




    I know I posted these in the old forum, but since 'janihudi' is new here, and he show us his job ride...., I just thought it would be ok to do this posting

    I see you haul ±60-65 tons. Here in Norway we have a limit of 50 tons. 52 if the road train is 22 meters, (If I remember correct).

    just 430,not that many for the work i do.

    mostly arount ±60/65 tons,but fortunately, holland is a flat country,
    so i manage it.
    and when i am in germany,belgium or luxembourg then we don't drive with so heavy containers.

    For me this looks more like a Mark 5 Cortina (1979-1983).
    Is this possible?

    Ahhh... the Ford Granada... what a car! You could literally pick the every component out of the engine and put it back together!

    Not like cars today... a computer with oil!

    This was my dream car about 20 years ago...

    This is my absolutely battered Buy-A-Wreck Ford Granada 2.8L. And it really does say OUCH! on the wing.
    She lasted me 7 years before it totally fell to bits, I loved my wrecks what can I say!

    This was my classic Yamaha RD400E in a rather battered and tatty way. Scary bike too, 0-100 in a very short time in it's day. Ah the nostalgia of it!
    Sorry for the poor quality, it's been hidden down the back of a shelf.

    my husband Alan's truck--Ford F350 (her name is "Babe" and she is a beast....)

    I practically need a pole vault jump to get into her.....

    and as long as I am posting pictures...here's my son AJ's truck--

    Boys in the rural South, no matter what their ages, need trucks........

    We have one Smart in town (a bright yellow hard top). It looks surprisingly roomy inside. I think it will make a great around town car. Make sure you post a lot of pictures and your review.
