I can relate to Mr. Club Soda.........You would think with all this free time on my hands while Craig is busy training, I'd be running around and keeping myself busy. Nope...I mainly sit at home, and couldn't be loving it more. I love the area we live in......mountains, pine trees, a huge river, and wildlife all around. Today we even have some blue skies trying to poke through the grey clouds, I'm sure to try and get some face time before the predicted snow flurries we are suppose to get Thursday. Yep, me and Mr. Club Soda are doing just fine...thank you very much!Who isn't doing a lot of sitting around is Craig and his trainee Charles. After yet another two successful deliveries in San Leandro on Monday morning, they were directed to dead head to Fresh Express in Salinas, CA. We had predicted that bit of information as it's just about a done deal every time we go empty in the San Francisco Bay area. So off they went to Salinas to get the trailer washed out and then dropped directly into a dock at Fresh Express. Not knowing yet what their dispatch would be and to where, they both decided to take naps, and in hindsight, that turned out to be a good decision. Shortly after waking up around 4pm, the QualComm started beeping with an appointment at 4:30pm. They headed down the street and hooked up to their trailer and Craig did the honors of driving first. By 10pm he had made it to Dunnigan, CA where they stopped for 5 hours to get some non moving sleep, and then Charles took over at 3am to begin his driving time.
When I heard from them around 8:30am, they were at the rest area at Grass Lake, CA near Weed and were taking a quick break. Charles will continue to drive to La Pine, OR and then Craig will take over and drive the rest of the way into Spokane, WA tonight. There they will grab some more sleep and then make three deliveries in the Spokane area Wednesday morning starting at 5am. And you know what I was thinking to myself? ...............sometimes it's not so bad being like club soda.
