By now, if you have been reading this blog for awhile, you know how often we are being sent across the border and having to deal with getting paperwork from one place to another electronically. After our last run, when we spent 30 minutes faxing over the customs paperwork to the Broker, then calling later to find out they had lost it, we decided, or should I say Craig decided to take control of our situation. On our last run to Wal Mart, Craig purchased a scanner/copier and went to work on our mobile command center. He figuered it would fit perfectly in the overhead and it does. With an extra electrical cord there, and a USB cord here, we are set to scan documents to my laptop and send them through email. Now, when we are required to fax or copy paperwork, we can do it from the comfort of the cab of our truck. McGyver strikes again!
It's been a quiet and uneventful ride so far to Minnesota to drop off the Genie. When we arose Monday morning and started out we were surprised to see fog in North Dakota. But what really got my attention was the way it looked as the sun was rising. Think back to the 80's and the movie "Poltergeist". All I could think about was the little psychic in the movie telling Carole Anne to go towards the light. We were happy to avoid going into the light, but watched as it slowly rose and the fog disappeared as we traveled down the road to Skapokee.
