Well actually, it's the space needle in Seattle, and you really have to squint to see it, but let's not split hairs about it. This was the view that Craig had while making his delivery down by the water in Seattle Thursday morning. Much to his surprise, he was not alone, as there were 3 other TWT drivers at the same place delivering that faux Kobe beef, (just kidding), destined to Japan. With no where to park after unloading, he was directed to go to the TA truck stop in North Bend, WA to await further instructions. Luckily by noon, the place had cleared out some and he was able to find a parking spot and enjoy the cool weather.
Around 3pm he was given his next assignment to head to Prosser, WA to pick up frozen french fries. I can't believe all the different locations we have picked up these starchy little buggers over the past 9 months. This is a new shipper that we have not gone to before,, but I will surely miss not being with him and stopping at the Starbucks at Exit 82 right across from the rest area in Prosser, when he picks up those spuds.
For those of you wondering, yes, he is headed south, to San Bernadino, CA for a Sunday late evening delivery of said potatoes. That will facilitate a quick pick up of me in Modesto sometime on Saturday afternoon. I'll be sure to run by the local Wal Mart to pick up on some food to restock the truck, but as most of you know, I'll also have a nice little care package, courtesy of my Mom, to make life on the road that much more enjoyable.
