this should be interesting. I was speaking with one of my workmates last week and the conversation got round to working every hour God sent on the continent about 20 years ago. He said it took him about a year for his body clock to adjust, and that he went through the hallucinating bit for a lot of that time. Just pushing and pushing to get the job done and not getting enough sleep.
Now the interesting thing was he told me that there were 2 main things he "SAW", and that other drivers he spoke to about it at the time said they saw the same things. I'm going to let this thread run for a few weeks, and If you have experienced it, let me know what you thought was there and I will tell you the 2 things he told me he saw the most

When i used to do some taxi work years ago, i picked up a doctor from Harley street and took him to Oxford. At that time there was some advert with a giant hedgehog crushing cars, and as we went up the M40, a flat bed went the other way with this hedgehog on the trailer. The doctor, who was nodding off didn't see it, when I said about it, he just gave me a funny look.
when we got to Oxford, it was about the time that the summer parties take place for all the Grads, and on the High St, we were passed by a man driving a jeep dressed as a giant banana. Again the doctor was nodding off and missed it, giving me another funny look. After I got back to the yard, i found out that the ~Doctor was a leading Psychiatrist!

okay, I will tell you what I was told............and if you have seen them then let me know. No lies please. number one was a white van in front of you which you stood on the brakes to avoid hitting, and the other was a pile of sand. Only what I was told. P.S. after reading some of your comments, I'm convinced all us lorry drivers are [zb] bonkers.
