Last week I told you about the new Community Event ‘Operation Big Sur’. That is ongoing and I have spent my trucking time doing my community duty. At the time of writing I have completed 38 deliveries and the community total is over 382000. I estimate that the goal will be achieved sometime on Saturday. Starting out in my Peterbilt 567 ‘Purple Rain II’, I’ve since done some runs with ‘Silver Dollar’, our Freightliner FLB and most recently in ‘Midnight Cruiser’ the Peterbilt 379. It is a grind, albeit a fun one. There have been all the usual random events and badly behaved ai driving to entertain – ie. keep us on our toes 😉 Here are some of this week’s screenshots…

Silver Dollar crosses Big Creek bridge on the way up to the work site under a brooding sky…

Dropping off a load of soil at Oxnard rail depot – that CAT is parked right where you’d like some space when manoeuvring 😦 Fortunately ‘Dollar has a good turning circle…

I did take a load of cars across to Artesia (NM) to add some variety to my driving and the game’s random events produced this rather diverting sight 😉

Midnight Cruiser has worked exclusively on Operation Big Sur loads. Here she is taking a load of road stone up to the site from Bakersfield…

Not all of these jobs are local to California. Today ‘Cruiser took a large digger that needed maintenance back to Phoenix…

…Before returning with an excavator along I10 and passing a couple of random events – in this case a minor accident with the Fire and Sherriff’s Departments in attendance…

That just about concludes this week’s Trucking Digest. Next week I hope to write a bit about what changes to truck simulator SCS Software have in the pipeline. In the meantime, Keep the Shiny Side up and the Greasy Side down 😉
