i even saw a video in a scania concession in Europe where they talk about not entering the cabin with shoes and had an inscription "no shoes" on the bottom of the entrance.
Yes, it is very common here with us. This is due to the fact that many "colleagues" pee everywhere in the parking lots. And so that you do not bring it into the truck, many drivers leave their shoes in the entrance. 8-) :D

On Monday I met one of my best friends in Frankfurt at the airport. Shortly afterwards the BAG also came and looked at our trucks with great enthusiasm.

Image


Unfortunately, our paths soon separated.

Image


Thats Oldschool Trucking.

Image


Pre-loading and then closing time, long day and short night.

Image


Love It.

Image


Boost up the night

Image


Drive fast unloading he said. It took me 2 hours to unload and load

Image


Off into the night. Fit? No!

Image


Details are everything. I removed the XF lettering, painted black and glued it to the door extension.

Image


Friday is washing day. Wash down the truck once. Hand wash only

Image


I recently promised a good friend to paint his rims. And then today the time has come. What do you think of the result?

Image


I've painted rims many times. It is an experience every time. And you get better every time.

Here is the finished result

Image

Image

Image


If you like the result, because the paint was a bit stupid, it took a long time for the white to dry.
I think when mixing the colors they didn't add enough hardener.
But need makes you inventive and after 6 hours everything was ready.

See ya Next Week :mrgreen:

And also, its not just pee but all the dirt that sticks to your shoes. Although they aren't that keen about driving without shoes in Germany?

Also, did I see a picture where is a can of Rockstar Tropical Guava? Best energy drink you have in Germany. Need to buy one can of it everytime I drive back from Spain. :D

@Killerhangar

The police and BAG do not like it so much if you drive without shoes. But they cannot punish us for it because there is no law against it. They usually report this to the trade association. She then contacts us and sets a penalty, but nothing happens in 90% of the cases.

I drive without shoes because I don't feel like piss in the cab.

This week I had the honor to take over the garbage tour, that means off to Bernburg.

Image


For a long time a stop at the Autohof Berg. Treated for my alloy rims wheel nut caps in chrome, and various polishing agents

Image

Image


There is a live webcam from the accessories shop. Where am I? :lol: :mrgreen: :lol:

Image


Bernburg unloaded in the waste incinerator, I drove to the next customer in Wanzleben, here I pushed backwards into a dirt road.
So I'm the first to go to the store tomorrow.

Image


The next morning at 7 a.m. Waiting for the load master, he probably overslept something.

Image


Service is everything, I replaced the LEDs because individual LED modules had failed.

Image


Everything back in place, everything works again. That's the best way to drive.

Image


So preloaded in Rödental for Pilsach. make my 30 min break ready, then to the customer and Feierabend.

Image


Arrived in Pilsach, I got slight problems with my stomach (urgently on the toilet).
Unfortunately the company has already closed, and there are no other options, so unsaddled and 3km to the garage.

Image


I love my melonlights.

Image


One of my colleagues drove my Friday tour for me because I couldn't make it in time.
We then met our customers.
He brought my tour and I preloaded my tour for the next day.

Image


Short break at the workshop.

Image


Fill up the tanks again and then go home.

Image


Wish you all a nice Weekend. See ya next Week.
