I couldn't let the day go by with out posting a great big happy birthday wish to Craig. I could go on and on about how much this guy means to me and the love I have for him. He has changed my life in so many positive ways and I hope to be able to share many more birthdays with him in the years to come. I'm so glad we took the time to do the pre celebration the other night, as we have been going non stop ever since. We even get to start driving tonight at midnight in order to make our first delivery appointment in Needles on Tuesday morning. How's that for a nice birthday present?
We had a bit of a surprise too this morning when we woke up to SNOW! It was only lightly snowing when we left the rest area, but boy did it pick up as we neared the summit. The snow was blowing right at us too, which made for visibility to be a bit limited. Sure was glad to get down off the mountain where it turned into rain and we had clear pavement to drive on.
What has been really nice is to finally getting to drive in a State that does not have a 55MPH limit for trucks. I had forgotten how fast the miles can fly by when you can go as fast as everyone else on the roads. Of course we do have governor on our truck that will not allow us to go faster than 65mph, but we will enjoy our time in Idaho and Nevada while it lasts!
Our plan is to use all available driving hours to make it into Wells, NV this afternoon. Then the trick will be to trick our minds into thinking it is evening and try to get some sleep before taking off again around midnight. We haven't had any caffeine today, so we are hoping that might help, but you can bet on massive dosages of caffeine when we wake up and hit the road!
