A few pics from the weekend! (not many words)

Which one should i take, DAF CF ,Scania V8 R500 or Man TGA?

On the bays at Morrisons Kettering.

3 Steps to heaven!!

Had a silly Shell Euro card so had to stop for fuel at M1 Jct 28.

Drop my trailer at Innovate M1 jct 29 an pick up a trailer full of ice cream for base!

Back at base and giving the trailer a drop of cherry!

Back on the bay and time for home.

Hope you enjoy, regards Smokinbarrels :smiley:

Hi Kiowan,
I’m always at CO-OP Halesowen, not a bad place to get to, but a proper pig getting on the bays! :confused:

Jesus that looks a bit tight!! Not for the faint hearted! :laughing:

Its not that tite, its just bloody awkward! You have to blind it in and at the same time watch your front end on the metal fence that just in front of the bays! :open_mouth:

Not teaching anyone to ■■■■ eggs or showing off, but looking at that last picture, it is not so difficult, especially with the yellow hatching. If you can keep your trailer wheels on the n/s yellow line. You can forget about the drivers side until you can straighten up.

I know you will say , yes, but you have been driving for a hundred years, well just watch what the shunters do, and more importantly what they are looking at when they do it.

Everybody can ■■■■ up. I do it myself. But just remember there is enough room between the lines, so apart from a slight tailswing, you can concentrate on the fence and the n/s trailer wheel

Cheers for the advice Wheel nut, i seem to ■■■■ up this place (and every other) every time i go there. :confused: Us new drivers need all the advice and help we can get! :blush:
Cheers mate! :wink:
Regards Smokinbarrels

Yeah in all fairness if you’ve only just started, blindsiding isn’t easy, even with those nice curved yellow lines to follow. Never been to coop in Halesowen, though I know where it is, I work for Innovate so do the Morrisons and Tescos rdc’s etc…
