I got dropped off in French Camp this morning while Craig was there on a mandatory 2 hour break. He wasn't able to leave LA until midnight, and with the pile of bill of ladings he has, it's a wonder he was ready by then. The shipper he went to in downtown LA receives small truck loads of produce from all over the valley, to then be sorted and put together for large trucks to deliver to the Safeway distributions centers around the west coast. I started looking through them and we are hauling items such as avocados, cucumbers, potatoes, pineapples, a variety of citrus fruits, tomatoes, and several different kinds of peppers, to include the hot habanero.
I would imagine, by the time we get to the Safeway DC in Spokane, WA on Thursday morning, we better have packed a lunch, because we expect to be sitting there, while they unload and inventory the items, at least 4-5 hours. Add that onto the 4 hours that it took to load the items and that my friends will be a very nice detention payout. Thankfully, Craig has planned this trip out, so that last night will be the only night of driving we will have to do, and for that I am very happy.
