DOUBLE SCOOP DELIGHT

We stayed in Corning, CA on Thursday night, and then Aurora, OR Friday night. Not much happened between here and there, and this morning we found ourselves at the familiar Fred Meyer DC in Clackamas, OR, along with a couple of our other TWT drivers. We were the last to get unloaded, and as we had watched the other two drivers leave the lot, we wondered where we might be sent next. We both had our guesses, and much to our surprise, we were sent to the one place we very much wanted to be sent..........Tillamook, OR.If you remember, last October was the first time we were sent there, and ever since we have been wanting to go back. First, for the beautiful drive along Highway 6, and secondly, for the cheese, summer sausage, sour dough bread, and fudge we would buy for our dinner, but more importantly, the third and best reason..........the ICE CREAM. I've said it before, but the ice cream there is the freshest, best tasting ice cream, outside of the home made maple ice cream my father in law makes. Make mine a double scoop please!Without much fan fare,we made it into Tillamook just before noon and walked over to the visitor center to buy our goodies. Since we don't load until tomorrow at 1pm, we have a nice $104 layover pay for the day to keep us happy while we wait......well that, and the bounty of goods we bought to consume. Good thing we have a great Internet connection here too, because TV reception is out of the question. We've already decided to bobtail over to the Fred Meyer store down the street in the morning for a cup of Starbucks and some grocery shopping. That should leave us plenty of time before our 1pm appointment for one last stop at the ice cream counter before we leave town!

If God had not invented ice cream I would be a skinny woman today.

You're right. Tillamook is a delightful place to be. I wish I could be there right now...

Sounds like a great stop.
It made me think of the cheeseburgers at Johnny Rocket's that come with Tillamook cheddar.
I managed a store in a mall that had a Johnny Rockets, Dave and I used to eat dinner there when he'd pick me up from work!
And the ice cream sounds and looks great. No ice cream here until the 6 feet of snow melts!!
