an actual lorry or just a big van?
i shouldn't have though, it was partially illegal
truckin across the country, sleeping in the cab, listening to music. The only issue would be crap food along the way, I don't want fry-ups three meals a day ta. Crap fry-ups at that.
I had to with work once as we had a van full of expensive kit.
It was in birmingham, and jesus fucking christ was it rough, kinda funny in a thank fuck i never have to do this again kinda way.
This one experience also totally distorts my view of birmingham
He said the articulated lorry test made the regular driving test look ridiculously easy. One of the requirements for the articulated lorry was to reverse it perfectly across a diagonal.
Proper good fun though. There's just the right amount of human interaction. Stopping off every now and then, give people their stuff and have a quick chat. Not sure whether I could spend 9 hours a day sat on my backside with nothing but a trailer full of Corn Flakes for company. I get to explore everywhere from the city to the countryside too, whereas most lorrying is gonna be spent on the motorway which would probably get pretty dull pretty fast.
