Truckstop Review: Avon Lodge, Avonmouth

Hello friends. Here be the first of an occasional series of Truckstop reviews, because sometimes you can’t be arsed cooking! Let me know what you think, if it’s any good etc and and suggestions, truckstops, cafes or even snack vans. The plan is to pretty much have a set meal when possible so we can compare places with each other- that meal is a fry up because a fry up is one of the best meals on earth!  An ideal fry up for me is 2 fried eggs, 2 bacon, tinned tomatoes, mushrooms, 1 slice of black pudding and 1 chunky sausage or 2 chipolatas, favourite type is the deliciously peppery Cumberland but not been in a cafe yet that lets you choose type of sausage! 2 toast and tea rounds out the meal. Preferably white sliced toast. Not a massive fan of fried bread or hash browns but will eat if there. I don’t go in for all that nonsense most do with fry ups by thinking it’s fixed this fixed that. Just eat what you like! The Avon Lodge Truckstop has over 40 HGV Spaces, 24 hour CCTV and pay at

A Look At The Iveco S-Way

Happy Sunday all. Here’s latest video, about the Iveco S-Way. Note - it’s not quite as in depth as the Volvo and DAF as I didn’t realise it would be there. Hope you enjoy anyway 

Vintage Stickers In Store Soon

Been working on a new range of stickers for my store. These will be vintage stickers. Back in the day it was great to collect them on your truck, sort of the trucks story, sadly in these corporate image conscious times it’s a activity that will never return but I’m going to remake them, good for laptops, phones, folders and even trucks. Any ideas and even better high quality images Welcome! Keyrings and more in store Monday

Mortimers Scania Centurion

So interesting one today. Toby at Broughton Transport Solutions Ltd wants to track down the Scania Centurion the company he once owned, J100 DMS. Last he heard it was in Ireland so I said I’d see if we could find it having many Irish followers as many of you are! No idea what reg it became if so but worth a post! Email me if you know anything and I’ll pass them on! Thank you!

#ThrowbackThursday; Gadgets Galore

Hullo friends. Weeks just seem to fly by ever faster and here we are at Thursday again. Here is the final in the Italy series of videos where I look a bit more closely at the stunning FH 540 Dual Clutch I took there. Being a demo from Volvo HQ it had every available option! I’ve been lucky enough to drive some incredible vehicles but even I was amazed at some of the features. Enjoy!
