Sometime, during the night Saturday, it snowed, because on our journey back to Interstate 5 on Sunday morning after getting loaded in Tillamook, OR it looked as if a good dose of powered sugar had been sprinkled over the landscape. We enjoyed the change in scenery from the day before, and made our way to Canyonville, OR for the night. There, with no TV reception, we enjoyed watching the last of the episodes we had missed of "Life on Mars", a new series on ABC, on one of our laptops, with an Internet connection.
With plenty of time to deliver this load, we awoke naturally Monday morning, without an alarm, and to be honest with you, these days, that seems to be anywhere between 4am and 5am. I remember, back in the day, when that time used to be the reason to curse the alarm clock, but not now……boy have things changed.
Again, as the night before, while we slept, it must have snowed, as there was yet another fresh dusting of snow as we traveled over Grants Pass in Oregon and into California. We made it into the Company yard in French Camp for the evening, where Craig was able to get his 2010 registration sticker for the truck and I did a quick load of laundry. Then it was time for some dinner and a date with Dr. House and Jack Bauer.
Our plan today is to make it into the Company yard in Bloomington where we will stage for a 10:15am delivery time at CostCo, just a mere 15 miles away on Wednesday morning. We suspect, and I doubt anyone would bet against us on this, that we will be headed down to San Diego for a banana load, especially with our sparkling new TWIC cards in our grubby little hands. But as I have said before, that is the joy of trucking, you just can’t be too sure of what you will get next.
