I suppose i'm lucky in a way, on Monday my week was looking just the same as any other, drive that truck here, here and here!!!

I could write a full essay on the adventures of this week alone!!!

Not work to me, just dicking around in the snow with a big engine!!!!!

Nothing worries me as i have a Microwave, fridge freezer, loads of food, a night heater, 19" LCD TV with freeview and PS3 and a bed, all a boy needs!!!

In brief i did:

Holyhead>Newport>Nantwich>Huddersfield>Liverpool>Nantwich>Glagow>Edinburgh>Livingstone>Blackburn>Nantwich>Leeds>Bradford>Shorpe>Stockport>Nantwich>Deeside>Holyhead!!!!

If u managed to get it to 3000 rpm it would be making one hell of a racket!!!!

Mine is a relative baby at 11 litres, 440bhp and around 2000 nm of torque, peak power and torque at 1650 rpm ish!

Big diesels don't need to rev, and WON'T rev!!!!!

Excellent pics mate, hope you didn't get stuck anywhere. Anyone seen the new series of Ice Road Truckers? Those roads in Alaska are mad, especially the one like a rollercoaster! Oh, and minus 14, that's nothing over there! Check it out.

Yeah, that was 2001, ages ago!!!

I was luck i had put a half cage in the car, i even had the door bars just had't got round to fitting them!!!

No cage and i would have been killed!!!!

I was off work for 6 months but all good!!

My big hobby is Waterskiing and i was doing that 6 months after i snapped my spine in 3 places!

Worse i get nowdays is i sleep bad on it and get a cricked neck for a day or two!!!
