We got about a good 6 inches of snow overnight in Spokane on Thursday, so when we awoke early Friday morning, we trudged our way into the driver's lounge to take showers and do laundry. While I was waiting for the clothes to dry, Craig took the opportunity to start our pick up and head over to the Wal Mart to buy himself some snow boots! Seems his feet didn't particularly like the loafers he was wearing while putting on chains on Snoqualmie Pass.
When all the housekeeping duties were completed, we took off for Wallula, WA to Tyson Meat to pick up our load. It wasn't scheduled to be completed until Saturday morning, but we had high hopes that it would be ready for us when we arrived. Just as we hoped, it was loaded and ready for pickup, but what we didn't like so much was maneuvering around the snow piles and slush that had built up on the Tyson property. Once hooked up to our loaded trailer, we couldn't find a place with bare ground to slide our tandems either. Craig, ever the optimist, drove off anyway, sure that we would find some place with a patch of bare asphalt.
