Hey there, we're back in the USA with Dan, who today will be making a delivery from the omnipresent, omniscient, omnipotent and omnivorous Walmart from Reno in Nevada down through NE California to Sacramento.

Image

Morning in Reno.

Image

Donuts for breakfast? Why not?

Image

A very bright colour scheme for the VNL day cab today.

Image

Been to Walmart, got the goods.

Image

Massive concrete bridges on the way out of town.

Image

Image

Heading south west.

Image

Typical scenery in this area: red 'mountains' and pine trees. Once again different. California is great - hope it gets an update sometime.
I could care less about Nevada and Arizona, but California really deserves a makeover.

Image

Stopping at the weigh station. Oooh look at that, an attempt to 'get into character'. I 'could care less'. Nice. It's those little things that make the difference.

Image

Nice little rustic dwellings nestled away amongst the scenery here near Truckee. We'll visit that place in the next thread.

Image

It was a great drive down to Sacramento.

Image

Image

Image

This is, I believe, the American River. Not a very original name, but at least it's not called after something that already exists in Europe.

Image

Took a shot of the other half of the river too because that water is looking pretty darn nice.

Image

Exit to Sacramento blocked. Lucky we didn't want that, eh? Oh, wait.

Image

Well, it wasn't a big detour, and we weren't pressed for time, so no harm done.

Image

I like this paint job but it is a bit over-bright. We'll go back to black but without the horses for the return journey.

Image

Let's finish off with a few views of Sacramento. It's pretty nice.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

If I eat many more of these I'm going to turn into one...

Bye for now!

Dan

Back again with a third set from - I guess - around 10 from northern California.
Today we travel back from Sacramento via some great scenery in Truckee to Reno.

Image

Got an early start in Sacramento.

Image

Back across the river in the early morning haze.

Image

Another glitchy trailer. Never encountered these problems before. An outdated mod perhaps...

Image

Heading back to Truckee sporting bizarre geometric pastel shades...

Image

The sun rose, glorious and warming.

Image

Enjoying the mountain views.

Image

Arriving in Truckee, we were not impressed. Seemed like a very unremarkable place. Got a Ray's though. Feeling peckish.

Image

Just a few jobsites.

Image

And containers...

Image

This cool loco saved things a bit though.

Image

Then I noticed a loop of road with no jobsites, so headed off with my camera to check it out - and found some nice clusters of backwoods housing around a lake, very nice!

Image

Really nice architecture, and I don't remember seeing it in too many other places in ATS. Of course, I haven't nearly been everywhere yet.

Image

Image

Image

Well, picked up this digger from Truckee and headed back to Reno - for the last time.

Image

Not sure why I keep going for black with the VNL. Maybe it's because I just don't like its looks somehow.

Image

Nearing Reno the landscape whitens. Back to dustiness once more.

Image

A smart street in Reno.

Image

Time to make that delivery. Next time we'll update to the long-distance cab, I think.

Cheers, Dan

Today here are some shots from a trip from Reno just inside Nevada across N California to Eureka on the coast.

Image

Heading out of Reno for the last time.

Image

Image

Heading West.

Image

As we move away from Nevada, the land gets greener.

Image

Image

Image

The mountains here are still 2016 vintage. Coloued greenish instead of reddish. Better than nothing. They look OK.

Image

Approaching Redding. We're not going to stop there today.

Image

Redding on the port bow.

Image

Still passing Redding.

Image

Image

Outskirts of Redding.

Image

Image

Stopped for a break.

Image

The Road Calleth!

Image

Image

Image

Image

Eureka by sundown or bust.

Image

Near Eureka.

Image

Image

Image

That's not the sea?!

Image

Here we are. We'll check out Eureka in more detail when we take the coastal route.
Have to say I was a bit disappointed not to see the sea here.

Image

Heading out to the delivery point. Wasn't any sea there either. Was a great drive
getting here though, so no complaints.

Cheers!
Dan

It's heavy cargo time! Taking a de-wheeled, de-tippered Mutt from Eureka to Redding, with some nice views of that fine city.

Image

Yep, it's the event of the year in Eureka. Everyone's there! Yes it is I, Dan 7th avatar of Elvis, truckin' this good earth.

Image

Tie it on tight!

Image

That's Mutt, I'm Jeff.

Image

The extended chassis getting a bit of air here over this steep bridge.

Image

More great rural architecture.

Image

Image

Image

Causeway base coated with water-repelling gel.

Image

Arrival in Redding.

Image

That is a looooong vehicle...

Image

Image

Okay, let's get this mutt to its kennel and go tour the town.

Image

Image

Where the well-heeled residents live.

Image

A sad sight, Redding's monument to Ernő Rubik destroyed by vandals.

Image

Ka-ching!

Image

A featureless modern housing estate in all its bland glory!

Image

Chopper's eye view.

Image

Erm... yep.

Image

The used car lot. Looks like they've got some good deals there.

Image

Distinctly Japanese feel about the placing of this log dwelling.

Image

The dusty busy city feeling - Redding's got it all. Bought a garage there.

Cheers for now!

Dan

Why, thanks for saying so! I do try.... (smiles modestly)

Good to see you're still looking in now and again!

Added in 18 minutes 35 seconds:
Today we're heading north for some of the nicest parts of California. In fact that's kind of 'cheating' as the nicest bits wouldn't actually
be there if it weren't for the Oregon expansion, but anyone who's still playing these trucking games after 8+ years probably has Oregon anyway, so whatever. And we'll make a second foray into Oregon itself, without showing too much again, saving that till another time. Hopefully that time will eventually come...

Image

Leaving Redding - sadly without seeing the Otis plant, where they make elevators - with yet another black paintjob.

Image

View from a bridge...

Image

Heading north towards Hornbrook.

Image

Fuji? No, Mt Shasta, I think.

Image

Image

Very classy landscape round here.

Image

There's a Mack with its soap-eating bulldog hood ornament.

Image

Image

Image

Pulling into a weigh station near the Oregon border.

Image

Even school buses get weighed.

Image

Medford, Oregon coming up.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Yep, Oregon looks just great.

Image

Image

Time to make that delivery. More N. California and S. Oregon goodness next time...

Until then, see ya

Today we'll be travelling through some very nice scenery, heading south from Medford, Oregon to Hornbrook in N. California, and then NE through N.C. back up into Klamath Falls in Oregon.

Image

After spending the night on an eco-farm and milking a few goats, we were off on a very nice trip.

Image

Picked up a cargo from Kraft Heinz. Wonder what those piggies were doing there.

Image

Image

Image

Heading out of Medford. Hopefully we'll be back there one day in a year or so to take a proper look.

Image

Image

Image

Back in N. California, in Hornbrook, which really is just a jobsite (maybe two?), a gas station and nothing else. What on earth was that heap of junk doing pulling that new trailer. Guess it's a licencing thing - can't show a licensed cab which has crashed.

Image

Image

Diggers to Mt Shasta. No, I jest but in this case they are going to Klamath Falls whether they like it or not.

Image

Beautiful part of the map.

Image

On the way back up towards Oregon, we passed through the town of Weed. Rather like Kunda in Estonia, I guess SCS put this in while emitting Beavis and Butthead-style guffaws. Weed, hur hur hur. Weed.

Image

Hur hur.

Image

Hur hur.... Weed.

Image

Really nicely made scenery town, though.

Image

Image

Mt Shasta techno disco. I'm up for it! Yeah I'm a bit old, but I'll tell them I'm Raja Ram.

Image

Image

Image

Near or in Oregon by now.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Klamath Falls coming up.

Image

We've arrived in Klamath Falls, the town where spring and fall meet up and party.

Thanks for looking in!

OK, we're well into the second half of this tour of N. California (and a bit of Oregon) now. Today we head out of Klamath Falls, Oregon and back down into N. California, getting almost back to Redding.

Image

Got a cargo in Klamath Falls.

Image

What is that Cessna doing there?

Image

Last moments of Oregon goodness for 12-18 months, I guess.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Back in California.

Image

Image

Canby turnoff.

Image

Canby. We turned right, though.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

A bit more arid for a while, before getting back into green forests.

Image

Image

Image

The town of Burney.

Image

Image

Image

Image

We're packing a headache rack today because there's a logging operation on route. After dumping the cargo in Burney we set off to try and get ourselves a logging trailer. Getting tired of diggers.

Image

Image

I wonder if they've got some logs for us to haul... ooh, a cliffhanger.

That's it for today, until next time....

Today: from the logging area via Redding down south almost to Sacramento and then west to the Napa Valley.

Image

Okay, cliffhanger over. No, there were no logging trailers available, just diggers. Right. Fine.

Image

Image

Okay, well, fair enough. At least I had the headache rack, just in case.

Image

Niiice.

Image

Image

We've reached Redding, some millionaire's pad I guess.

Image

We've got diggers to deliver nearby.

Image

Image

Very early start the next day with.... a digger of some kind. Actually, some kind of highway construction grader, maybe.

Image

Heading south along the side road parallel to the Redding-Sacramento highway.

Image

One grader delivered.

Image

Moving further south past a nice fock of starlings.

Image

Image

Californian rural scenes abound.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Another old wreck.

Image

Skipped the highway by Sacramento - we're in wine country now, near San Rafael.

Image

Napa valley train.

Image

Picked up a cargo of wine to carry to an exclusive retailer in Redding.

Image

Close-up of that train.

Image

Heading out of the Napa valley.

Image

The weather's taken a turn for the worse.

Image

A bit more rural-ness to finish off as we head back to Redding for the last time before hitting
San Rafael and the coastal road back up to Oregon.

See ya!

Dan
