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…

NMT VX57 BFU in Finchley

…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…

…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…

Middle of the month and it’s time to share desktops for Clare’s challenge.

On the Photo pc I have a black and white view of cows and crows – a reminder that Summer was still here until a few weeks ago…

Cows and Crows

…The clouds and the crows speak of autumn just around the corner though.

On the Games pc we have a shot of Miss Lola heading towards Bakersfield along US-58 with an articulated dumper truck…

…The sun is going down and we’re going to need to stop for a break soon. We’ve just passed a Motel, visible between the power poles, but I don’t want to stop there – anyone recognise it?
