By there, I mean home, and by home, I mean California. Prior to our 36 hour reset of Craig's driving hours in Canada, we had been given a new load assignment to pick up a boat mold in Sedro-Woolley, WA. Our rest period ended Sunday morning, so off we went 60 miles away, just hoping to find a place to park for the day and watch the Super Bowl......And then, some days you just get lucky.
The manufacturer had a weekend crew working on Sunday. We were happy to be able to just go inside their lot and sit until Monday to get loaded, but since this boat mold was slated to be picked up last Friday, the mold, along with the paperwork, were all ready to go. Within minutes of arriving, the forklift had the mold on the trailer and we had just 4 straps to put on and then.....oh yeah..... it was an oversize load. Since we have our own fax number, when we were given the info about this load while still in Canada, we had the permits faxed and in hand, and off we went.
We took off headed south, our destination being Adelanto, CA, to Cabo Yachts. We made it into Coburg, OR for the night and in time to watch the last half of the Super Bowl. We got up early and took showers, but had to wait until sunrise to leave. We anticipated running into some bad weather but we are keeping our hopes high that the roads will be open over all the passes and summits we have to cross. As long as we can make it past Redding, we should be home free.....literally by Wednesday.
