Random Screenies

After sharing a video of the Volvo VNL670 I thought I’d share a few screenshots from trips in this truck.

No prizes for guessing which state I’m in with this shot……Departing Gallup with a ventilation shaft.

An interesting delay on the interstate……Called into the Weigh Station at Grant’s Road. I found a car on the off ramp waiting for a gap in the traffic to get back on the highway – clearly a confused bunny 😉 And then when I was clear to go I found the exit snarled up. I thought it was an accident but it turned out the tanker you can just see the back of between me and the Schneider had broken down. After a couple of minutes waiting for the ai to de-confuse itself I decided to drive around the blockage using the hard shoulder. Made for a nice shot to show off the metallic paint job though 😉

The twin silos in this late evening view are a sign that we’re running into Barstow……That’s a bit of a mixed blessing. It means not too far to go until Bakersfield (if that’s where I’m headed) 🙂 It also means we’re approaching the horrible I40-I10 intersection where you can trust the ai to set up some traps to catch the unwary 😉 You can see how clear the instruments on the Volvo are in this shot.

Pesti-sui-cide

...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…
