The state of Texas released on November 15th and I have been very busy driving in American Truck Simulator since then to help with the community event and to bring my in-game achievements back up to date. There’s been a lot of driving…😥 However, this afternoon I completed the last delivery for the final outstanding achievement – I can relax once more and take part in Cee’s Midweek Madness Challenge😎👍

Let’s start with a Castle – Or, as it’s in Spain, a Castillo…

It’s all trucks this month for Clare’s Share Your Desktop Challenge!

The last week of October saw SCS software running an event for Halloween in their Truck Simulator games. You can read about the Happy Hauloween event on SCS’s blog. I decided to do all 13 required deliveries in American Truck Simulator. I used my ‘non-company’ profile and fired up The Undertaker to do the work. Here we are late at night with a worried looking security man…

The Undertaker is a Peterbilt 389 and usually sports a deep gloss black paint job – but she’s wearing a pumpkin themed special for the event. While this shot is not on my desktop, I’ve included it for completeness…

…The view from behind the wheel. While having some Halloween fun, we were also supporting Breast Cancer Awareness – hence the pink ribbon boxing gloves😎

On the photo pc, we have a shot of a DAF XF105 6×4 510HP truck parked on my road…

…That sky makes a wonderful contrast with the yellow of the NMT livery 😎Getting the mobile crane it delivered into the factory must have been fun with the telephone pole and cables in close proximity to the entrance!

No Pumpkins and no Autumn leaves say’s Cee for this week’s Midweek Madness Challenge. Ok, well, I’ve ruled out fruit and flowers too, so we’re going down the clothes and transport route😎

Here’s our Goalkeeper in his preferred orange ensemble…

Hornchurch 2 vs Wingate & Finchley 0 (2022/23)

…Providing a bit of humour with that facial expression 😅

At the same match – here’s our fitness coach chatting with the pro-photographer who works for the local newspapers…

Finally, here’s a screenshot photo from Car Mechanic Simulator – a Mustang…
