Once broke down on the elevated section of the M6 near Fort Dunlop on a VFR750 and found a nearly new 13mm spanner on the hard shoulder

Barn Owl...It was a clear crisp winters morning and as it swooped in front of the lorry in the fens a car hit it coming the other way, so I stopped the lorry, walked back to the owl lying on the road, couldn`t see any sign of life, so I picked it up and cradled it close to my chest, I then saw some movement, so I turned to face the field and slowly it came back to life as I was stroking it, once it was ready it simply got on it`s feet and flew off...One of the best moments of my entire life.

Long distance lorry driving can be very lonely.

:yup: I don’t think I would drive otherwise, even though it’s only 3.5T vans. I actually like it when the delivery address says Penzance, Truro or Barnstaple. Having said that I am a also bit weird in liking London driving, but I’m not there long enough or late enough to meet any pros! lOl

Funny where you can find yourself going on a delivery route. I went to Globe Industrial Park in ‘Dukinfield’ yesterday. Admin spelling not mine. :roll:
It would be wrong not to drop by at The Eporium not far from there to see if Max was in on the off chance, but it was closed. :(
