Location: Staphorst. Holland.
Date: June 2007.
Remarks: On my way from Zwartsluis to Hoogeveen. Here you see a typical small Dutch road. Beside the road there's a small canal. A real Dutch scenery.
Location: Staphorst. Holland.
Date: June 2007.
Remarks: This is typical Dutch too: A speedbump. I believe founded in the Netherlands. Now it spreaded itselves as a real diseast all over the world. The Netherlands is having them in all kind of sizes. This is an easy one, but some of them are only able to take in first gear. You find them anywhere; in villages, towns, cities on small roads, even on mainroads...Even in the middle of nowhere, like here, there are speedbumps in the Netherlands.
Location: Staphorst. Holland.
Date: June 2007.

Location: Staphorst. Holland.
Date: June 2007.
Remarks: Northbound highway A-28. The Staphorst-entrance on the A28 goes directly over into the highway A-32 exit. All I had to do here is merging on to highway A-28 because Hoogeveen was my destination, but I came there at a busy moment.
Location: Near Hoogeveen. Holland.
Date: June 2007.
Remarks: Northbound highway A-28. I'm not that often in the north of the Netherlands, so the places signposted here are even "almost new" for me.
Location: Near Hoenderloo. Holland.
Date: June 2007.
Remarks: Southbound highway A-50. Here you see a "wildlifeoverpass" in the Dutch National Parc "De Hoge Veluwe". There are several wildlife overpasses in the Netherlands. I believe this one is the biggest.

Remarks: I started the day in Gronsveld, up to Zwartsluis. Thereafter to Hoogeveen. From Hoogeveen to Den Bosch, and finally from Oosterhout to Delft. But Delft was planned for the next day, so my day ended at the Kanters truckstop in Moerdijk, where I spend about an hour on taking some pics. This nice Scania was my first picture that evening.

Company, homebase: Taale Transport. Middelharnis, Holland.

Location: Moerdijk. Holland.
Date: June 2007.
Remarks: There she was......A real duck at the Kanters truckstop. For a second I thought it definitly must be the Rubber Duck.....But this is not a movie. This is reality. Just like the duck. My second thought was a runaway daymenu, just like those cocks at the Joost. But there was no duck on the daymenu at Kanters. Anyway, the bird was walking overhead the truckstop like it was her daily business.......

Truck: Mercedes-Benz Actros Megaspace.

Remarks: Miss Duck behaved herself like a real photomodell. First I moved her to the right. Guess what; When I was about to take the picture she came back .......So I moved her the other way......Same result....Finally I took the picture of this rig with miss Duck......She waited politly till I took the pic. Then she continued her walk to watch the rigs at the Kanters truckstop. Amazing!

Company, homebase: Jan Zijderhand. Moerkapelle, Holland.
Remarks: The last for that day at the kanter truckstop.
Location: Near Colombey les Belles. France.
Date: June 2007.
Remarks: The Hartog & Bikker dispatch ask me at Fridayafternoon politly or I like to take a load for Vitrolles, near Marseille. Unloading Tuesdaymorning, leaving Mondaymorning. Sure!! Why not! So a 1200 km oneway trip waited for me that Monday. The next bunch of pictures will be scenery pics taken in southern France and Germany, wherefor I loaded for at my returntrip. The first pic is a very North-American look-a-like. A real Dutch registered Kenworth W900 overtook me southbound highway A-31 nearby Colombey les Belles in northern France. I tried to take a pic in my rearmirror, but the result was awfull, so this was my best shot.
Location: Near Til Chatel, France.
Date: June 2007.
Remarks: Southbound highway A-31. Near Til Chatel you have this awesome view.
Location: Near Lyon. France.
Date: June 2007.
Remarks: After a nightstop at the truckstop in Belleville, I continued my trip to Vitrolles again. I took this pic at 6;02 am southbound highway A-7 just north of Lyon.
Location: Lyon. France
Date: June 2007.
Remarks: An early morning impression of highway A-7 just south of Lyon.
Location: South of Lyon. France
Date: June 2007.
Remarks: Southbound highway A-7. Driving through the valley of the river Rhône. The Rhône to the right of course.
Location: Vienne. France.
Date: June 2007.
Remarks: Southbound highway A-7. French scenery in the Rhône valley near Vienne.
Location: Southbound highway A-7. France.
Date: June 2007.
Remarks: I'm sure the driver of this Doumen rig didn't realize he overtook far, far, faraway family of his boss. Yes, my mothers family is named Doumen too. Research of the Doumen family here some years ago, proved that Doumen trucking France is family......Small world!
Location: Valence. France.
Date: June 2007.
Remarks: Southbound highway A-7. Impression of the Rhône valley near Valence.
Location: Near Valence. France.
Date: June 2007.
Remarks: Southbound A-7. The more to the south, the more you see the change in vegitation. You won't find Cypress-trees ( I hope the name is correct in English ) in the Netherlands. South of Valence you see them a lot. On the Mediteranean coast you can find lot's of Palm-trees...But not near the highways!
Location: Southbound A-7. France.
Date: June 2007.
Remarks: Highway impression in southern-France.
Location: Mornas. France.
Date: June 2007.
Remarks: Southbound highway A-7. Passing the fort of Mornas. This fort is clearly visible driving at highway A-7. Unfortunally this place brought back bad memories for me. Back in spring 1996 when driving for Agritrans I made my 9-hour rest at the northbound rest area near the fort. Right there I became a phone call that day, that my mother was having lung cancer. She died in July of that same year. After 11 years passing this place again, it still brought back the shivers to me.
Location: Orange. France.
Date: June 2007.
Remarks: Southbound highway A-7. To the right means you will end up in Spain wich is only a 4 hour drive by truck. The city of Barcelona is signposted already. Straight on you might end the trip in Vitrolles. I'm sure the Hartog & Bikker dispatch would not like a phone call from me from Barcelona instead of Vitrolles......
