Hi Peter, I just want to welcome you to Trucknet-UK :smiley:

Sounds like you could possibly find a few old acquaintances here, whether you do or not I hope you enjoy your stay here :wink:

Welcome indeed Peter.

You worked for some range of companies there! We trust that you have a huge collection of photos? :smiley:

When people ask me what was it like back then.
I have to say it was not a job,or even a way of life,it was the greatest adventure anyone could have embarked on.
Looking back,we were so lucky to have been there at that time,because it will never happen again.
It changed many lives,in many ways.
While not going into detail,I’m glad I’m one lucky chap because I’m still married to the same girl!

hi thats why i titled this as the adventures,to me it was there was always something going wrong or right, i remember reaching around hascovo in bulgy,got a police stop, they were advising drivers to go by
the black sea coast and enter turkey at derikoy,as the was a 16 kilometre back log at kapicula,over a week
waiting so away i went,not realising it was a transit only border,i was there for 3 weeks,till i got the ok
from the kapic director,and then had to have a customs guy travel with me to istanbul,see what i mean,regards peter supple

Welcome aboard Peter. In your quiet moments you might explore the Nottingham bus firm thread (which despite its title is about M/E adventures) and of course the Astran / Middle East drivers thread. Plenty of adventures on other threads too… Robert :slight_smile:
