Delivered the load of groceries at Whole Foods in Kayenta, AZ then bobtailed to Flagstaff, AZ to hook up to a reefer loaded with rice to deliver to Redding, CA. On the last photo, I stopped at a rest area after entering California to buy me a cup of coffee.

Title: Re: 1truckingenthusiast's Adventures

It seems you've bought your own trailer in the game now; I must say that's really nice that you can buy your own trailers in the game now, and something that's gotten me excited to play the game more frequently again.  And the new Volvo does look pretty good too.  Like many new designs, I wasn't completely sold on it at first but now that they've become common on the road it has really grown on me.

How about stretching your legs now & making a run to the Hunts Point Market? ???

Because at this point the only states available in the game are California, Nevada, Arizona, and New Mexico with Oregon coming very soon.  I believe as long as the game stays popular enough to justify doing so, SCS does plan on eventually covering the whole U.S., and maybe even parts of Canada and Mexico.  It's going to be quite some time before we can go all the way to the east coast, but this game is a continual work in progress.  The map of sister game Euro Truck Simulator 2, which has been around longer than ATS, started off small (and on the same 1:20 scale) too.  At the rate they've been adding new regions there, I think by the end of 2020 all of Europe will be available to drive in, except for perhaps parts of Ukraine and Russia. 8)

So are the wheel covers part of the mod or are they available in the base game. I notice the trailers have the flow below style while the tractors do not.

Hey Jon, I made the trailer flow below covers available on the trucks also. Do you want a copy of them?

How are you liking Oregon so far (not that you've gone very far into it as of this post)?  As I write this I haven't gone in too far either - only up to Burns - but still, I must say SCS has done an amazing job on the detail with the latest DLCs especially.  Just imagine what it will be like once the whole U.S. is completed, which will obviously take a while, but seems like the plan as long as there's enough interest to keep going.  And on another note I hear the previous generation Volvo VNL should be officially added to the game in a few weeks, which I'm really excited about since I play vanilla.  Your truck is looking good too as always.
