It's amazing what eleven hours of solid sleep will do for you. I couldn't believe it when I woke up this morning and saw what time it was, and that we had slept so long and uninterrupted. With all that rest, we were energized to do some spring cleaning in the truck. We cleaned and organized from top to bottom and front to rear. Even bought a new CB antenna and a log book binder for Craig, and by 10am we were done!So here we sit at the Pilot truck stop in Salinas waiting to receive our next dispatch. If history tells us anything, it will be well into this afternoon before we hear the cheerful beep of the QualComm. I really can't complain, the last two loads with 8 drops, kept us hopping pretty good the last week. Having the opportunity to sit and just be is fine with me.The pictures were taken yesterday on our way through the Monterey/Salinas valley area. The green of the landscape was just breathtaking and beautiful. How could you not be happy just being able to witness it. Reminds me of this saying I saw :

"Isn't it odd that we constantly seek to find happiness when all along it is a choice?"

If I ever slept for 11 hours my wife would have to call the undertaker, because I would be dead. I don't think I've ever slept that long in my life.
