    I want to enter.

    I never really dream about being a trucker, but I like that you are being on the road all day, eat something, sleep in your truck and do the same next day. The exploring of the cities is really nice! Also truck driving seems to be rather relaxing :)

    Easy Answer: You can explore many countrys and cities, thats the biggest plus i think.
    And the challange of manouvering a big truck in a small city is a challange that doesn't make the job boring.
    Oh and i forgot the most important thing: You have these cool signs :)

    But i new a guy who was a trucker for a livin'. It's such a cool thing. I was with him oround in europe. Denmark-Italy Italy-Scotland and then back to denmark. It was a very nice week, and to do it yourself would be great.

    I bet everyone would like to drive 500bhp beast and get paid for it. Also I like that freedom when you are traveling around. That's so cool and it's the reason why I have played most of the games from Hard Truck II. Trucking for the win!

    The freedom of the open road. The fact that no 2 days are ever the same, who would not wish for that in life. A new day, a new adventure on the road

    The thought of being out on the open road and seeing sites and cities across the uk and Europe that others could only dream off. Here I am 22yrs later still loving my trucking !!!

    When I was younger I traveled to a heap of different cycling carnivals each year. Every time we'd stop at a servo I'd always take a peep at the nudie magazines...I thought to myself, man if I was a trucker this would be THE LIFE!

    When I was younger I had to move from Poland to Ireland. The car we used was a small Opel Corsa, Then I began thinking how cool it would be to move all around Europe with something bigger, go all over Europe seeing all those beautiful cities. Also I thought how cool is that, you're driving a massive vehicle all over the place and you even get payed for it!

    Being a truckdriver has to be amazing. You travel all around europe, with cargo that has to be delivered without any damage, so basically truckdrivers have a huge responsebility. Without them, we wouldn't have food, clothes and what not in the shops!

    RESPECT

    When I was young, I knew and admired a few truck drivers here in the USA and they were/are some of the manliest men I ever met. I now design lettering and graphics for trucks on a daily basis and have done business with many of the people and corporations in the industry. I eat, sleep and dream "Trucks" and have always wanted to travel around Europe - this simulator would be the perfect way to marry the two.
