Labor Day???? Nope......more like Lazy Day. Other than delivering our load of bananas to the Fred Meyer DC in Clackamas, Or, we did absolutely nothing on Labor Day. Oh sure, we lounged around as much as you can inside a cab of a truck, watching TV and surfing on the Internet. We had hoped for a dispatch when we went empty, but it would never come, and to be honest, we weren't all that much surprised by it.
On the way up to Clackamas on Saturday, we sure did enjoy the cooler weather that Oregon was offering. When we decided to call it a day in Halsey, the cooler temperatures brought with it some rain. Yes, that's right......RAIN. What a sweet relief that was from the hot, muggy weather of southern California. It was the first time in such a long time, that we for once did not sleep with the APU running. Then yesterday, after unloading, we were able to sit at the TA Truck Stop in Aurora with the windows down all day enjoying the cool breezes.This morning, with the windows having been left open all night, it was overcast and chilly, just the way we like it. But as the morning rolled along, the sun came out and it has warmed to a nice 65 degrees. We were beeped with instructions to go back to the Fred Meyer DC in Clackamas and drop our trailer. Then we are to bob tail to Transformer Tech in Salem,OR to pick up a dry box trailer. We have yet to receive an actual dispatch to know exactly what we will be picking up, that will come in time no doubt. We are just happy to be rolling again. Hope your own Labor Day was as relaxing as ours.
