And really..... I'm not sure I have all that much to say. I was so uninspired with what I had to take pictures of today, that I resorted to taking a picture of me, taking a picture of me, in the side mirror. But I can't complain. The weather has been absolutely wonderful the last couple of days.
We left French Camp, CA, Monday morning around 7am, after waiting around for the shop guys to show up to see if we could get an IFTA sticker (yearly sticker that must be on the truck). We were told we would have to get ours at the Spokane yard, and with a 30 day grace period, we weren't too worried about getting it on time. The sun was shining the entire day, and by the time we made it to Medford, OR, where we needed to stop for fuel, we could find no reason to put any more miles in for the day and shut down.
We had some great TV reception, except for the channel we really wanted (FOX) to continue watching Jack Bauer take on everyone who gets in his way on 24. But between the networks and our laptops, we were more than content to be lazy and waste a few hours on mindless entertainment until it was time to go to sleep.
We were up and on the road this morning at 5am with foggy conditions that lasted until the sun came up. At that time, we had mostly cloudy skies the remainder of the day. Yet another easy day of driving, not much more than 400 miles and were made it to the company drop yard just 6 miles away from our delivery in the morning.
We suspect we will have our usual routine after we unload our bananas, that being to sit at the Fred Meyers and either get a load out of there, or be sent south for something else. In either case it usually involves sitting there for several hours until they figure out a dispatch for us. Neither one of us really cares though, we have kinda gotten used to this "lazy trucker" routine we have had the last couple of days, and just when you get used to it, we can always count on it changing. At least then, I may have something to write about!

Sounds like a very pleasant trip. The pictures look great too.
Jack kicked A$$ but I won't tell you anymore in case you tivo'd it or something.
Getting close to testing w/DMV. Can't wait to start training and join you guys on the western hiways!
