Location: Near Pouilly, France.
Date: September 2004.
Remarks: After unloading in Appoigny it was time to continueing my trip to Chevigny, near Dijon. In Chevigny, I unloaded the rest of my load of glassjars and loaded empty BSN pallets back for Maastricht. I took this picture Friday around noon, eastbound A-38, on my way to Chevigny.
Location: Chevigny, France.
Date: September 2004.
Remarks: After unloading and loading in Chevigny, it was time to drive home again. I took this picture just after passing the tollstation at highway A-39. Now it is time to go northbound highway A-31 direction Metz. Some wellknown French and Swiss cities are signposted here.
Location: Near Langres, France.
Date: September 2004.
Remarks: Northbound A-31. Altough Paris is called the City of Love, I rather prefer to follow the sign for Metz. That brings me home to my "city" of love, Gronsveld!
Location: Near Langres, France.
Date: September 2004.
Remarks: Northbound A-31. That's life, cruise control at 90 km/h, a nice cd in my cd-player, beautiful landscape, sunny weather, and a nice and quiet highway!!!! What more do you want as a trucker on this Fridayafternoon, somewhere in the middle of September!
Location: Nancy, France.
Date: September 2004.
Remarks: Northbound A-31. After passing the tollstation of Gye, the A-31 becomes a tollfree highway again. From that moment on, it's time to come out your relaxed way of sitting, switch of the cruise control, and go back to work again! The picture is taken at the moment when I was going down on a steep hill. But the retarder was doing it's job well, and I had some time to take this picture. As you can see a tollfree highway means much more traffic than as you can see at the tollhighway at the picture above this one. At the right you can see a part of the city of Nancy.
Location: Near St. Job in het Goor, Belgium.
Date: September 2004.
Remarks: Northbound E-19. A week after my trip to France, I was hanging around in this mess. The leftover of hurricane Frances made a real mess in Belgium, The Netherlands, and the northern part of Germany. Lot's of rain, severe wind, and as you can see, enourmous traffic jams. In this case a traffic jam into Antwerp was thanks to Frances and the roadworks on the Antwerp ringroad about 15 km long, instead of the usual 5 km! Lucky, I was heading northbound instead of southbound!
