All the best 2011!!

Hey, long time no see. Cheers from Valladolid, tanker trucking around Spain and Portugal. Here are two pics of my truck, an Iveco Stralis 480, in Cabezón de Pisuerga (Valladolid), Spain.

Again, all the best for 2011.
Keep on trucking.

Welcome unemployment.

Hello, long time no see... Well, working a steady monday to friday keeps me a lot buisyer then living on the road. I have had a hard time adapting to it, I have always missed the long haul.
The fact is, that although I planned to stay woking here until at least Christmas, unproffessional atitudes within management have accelerated my exodus, giving them the two week notice, and planning a short vacation before searching for new wheels. No, I don't have a job yet. Searching for long, long haul...

I end my job August 19th.

Heading to the beach!!

Nothing new in town, but some new pictures on the block... Still trucking around France and Spain, every weekend home. So enjoy!

At Katoen Natie, Saint Martin de Crau, (13) France.

Loaded with steel coils, from Le Boulou, France, to Castellbisbal, near Barcelona, Spain.

Future aluminium cans, as giant aluminium rolls, ten tons each. The variety of loads makes the job interesting.

Long time...

Wow, it's been a long time. As you know, I've now been in Spain for a while, and I am driving a truck around Spain and France, home every weekend. But you can't imagine how busy I've kept myself, but you do need to have in mind that Europe does not boast of wifi availability on the road as North America does.
So here you have some pictures of the truck I drive, and i promise to keep on posting.

Rust In Peace, Subaru!

First of all, the Christmas season is arriving, so first of all: MERRY CHRISTMAS Y'ALL!!!

Well, my Subaru celebrated the end of the cross-Canada trip by busting the brake lines, they rusted out so I lost all the brakes. Finally, I decided to donate my car to charity, where they can fix it and find some use for it.

Farewell picture.

Across Canada with the car!

Forget the truck, this time I get to travel across Canada in my car. One last trip before I go back to Spain, a farewell tour for my Canadian family.

Ah, for once I get to pass the trucks!

Dark Northern Ontario Hwy 11

Snow. Lots of it.

H and R truck. Many of them:

I have to stop for a Banana Split, in Moosomin, Saskatchewan. Cheers!

On the move...

My life is up side down at the moment. I'm in the process of moving out of home. I am currently unemployed, and in three days I'll be homeless as well. My only possessions will be my car, and a couple suitcases.

I feel liberated by the fact of getting rid of so much. My furniture, my TV (sniff...), most of my books, and a whole lot of stuff of which the Salvation Army has been a recipient.

But it is exhausting.

I still have to drive out west (in my Subaru) for the last time for a farewell visit to my Canadian family out west, before someone takes possession of my car (It will probably be the Fire Department in Ottawa, they could use it for practice), so I will try and do my best to document my next trip across the Trans-Canada.
