Craig made his delivery this morning in Auburn, WA and dropped off the juice at the Safeway Distribution Center. After unloading, he went to the Company's little drop yard in Pacific, WA to wait for his next work assignment. Around 12:30pm he was beeped with the dispatch to head to Toppenish, WA to AB Foods to pick up some beef. This load is scheduled to be delivered to downtown Oakland, but thankfully, it is on Sunday and not a weekday. That should help on the traffic situation, but I feel bad I won't be with him to help maneuver around and back into the tiny little business tucked within a residential area.
We tried to figure out a way for him to detour and pick me up prior to his delivery, but it was too many miles off the route. Best case would be for him to be sent back to the Company yard in French Camp on Sunday afternoon, but our guess is that he will be sent to Salinas, CA to Fresh Express. But you never know, so we will take it one day at a time and reassess the situation on a daily basis.
But right now, Craig is still sitting in Toppenish waiting for the trailer to be loaded. With any luck it will be ready by the time his mandatory 10 hour break is over. I of course, will be not so patiently waiting for when we can meet up again.
