Today I have a run in American Truck Simulator from Aberdeen (WA) to Bend (OR). The truck is Autumn Gal, our DD60 engined Freightliner FLB……and we have 39000lb of Gravel in tow. This was a generally relaxed drive although I did encounter some traffic which delayed me at the intersection with the I5. Then there was the fool who pulled out of a sliproad as I passed through Salem – could have been an accident if I didn’t have room in the adjacent lane 😦 Heavy loads take a long time to stop! I caught a box of neutral’s as I came into Bend – sheepish grin 😉 Anyway, hope you enjoy the views as we pass through Portland and the trip in general 🙂

ps – there is a small amount of frame loss at times in this video, probably caused by a Windows 10 update that was going on in the background 😦

...or how to embarrass yourself 😉

My posts have been a bit sporadic lately because I wanted to try out doing some video’s of the computer simulations that I play. Trying out the technology and looking for a reasonable length video took up quite a lot time. It is the nature of most simulation games that the player will be doing a particular activity for somewhat longer than the average pop video. Anyway, here is a video from American Truck Simulator in which I will be transporting a load of pesticides from Phoenix to Holbrook. And… You get to hear my voice for the first time – that’s gotta be worth a few minutes hasn’t it? And if you survive to the end you can have a laugh at me making a real mess of parking – something I usually have no problem with! I’m blaming that on trying to do two things at once 😉 Here you go, me and the Volvo VNL670…
