Yeah, the Saints won, even though I was going with the Colts, being a Peyton Manning fan. And in a show of solidarity, since Craig could not partake, there wasn't a vast amount of snacks around our Super Bowl table. Nope, we chowed down on a weenie roll up and some veggie chips and enjoyed the commercials as much as the football game.

Craig and Eric got moving around noon on Saturday from Fresh Express in Salinas. By 3pm they were in the company yard in French Camp, CA and I was getting a good strong hug from Craig. I stayed long enough to watch Eric practice his backing skills, until the rain started coming down and I decided staying dry was much more fun. After the backing practice, they headed to Corning to spend the night.

Come to find out, their deliveries were not until this morning, so they had all day Sunday to drive and they made it Gee Cee's truck stop in Toledo, WA. At around 2am this morning Craig took off driving, first to their fuel stop in Tacoma and then into the Fred Meyer DC in Puyallup, and then a second drop at an independent distributor about 5 miles away.

Immediately after going empty, they were told to head back to the Fred Meyer DC in Puyallup, drop their empty trailer and await a loaded one around 2pm. By 1pm they were headed towards Spokane with a four drop assignment for tomorrow morning in the Spokane area and then into Idaho in Coeur d'Alene. With any luck they will find time for showers and laundry tomorrow after they go empty, before they receive their next assignment.

The shelves in our local markets are bare after our recent blizzard. Made me think how much we depend on truckers who constantly refill our shelves. Thanks for helping to feed us all.
