After leaving Canyonville, OR, we only had enough driving hours to get us to Tumwater, WA, home of Olympia Brewery, which I had mentioned in an earlier post. We stayed at a Pilot Travel Center and left this morning at 3:45am to get to our delivery location in Puyallup, WA. Our appointment time was 5am and we were immediately directed to our dock. It didn't take long to feel the jerking trailer as the forklifts extricated the bananas. Within 30 minutes we were done and had placed our empty call into the computer.
Five hours later, we were sent a dispatch to head over to the Company yard in Pacific, WA. We were instructed to hook up to a trailer filled with dairy products and deliver it tonight at 9pm to Lakewood, WA, which is only 29 miles away. Haven't heard yet if they have any plans for us after we drop, so we are hoping to be able to find a spot to park back at the yard in Pacific when we are done.
Right now we are enjoying overcast skies, a cool crisp breeze, and temperatures in the mid 50's. Craig is enjoying it so much that he is huddled under his sleeping bag taking a nap! Sometimes, life is tough eh?
