It's not very often that things work out perfectly in trucking world, but it did for us on Sunday. We were able to drop the "slow boat to China" banana load in the yard in Pasco, WA and await a loaded trailer full of beer which would arrive later in the evening. That really left us no other option than to bob tail over to a restaurant in town and enjoy watching the Super Bowl on a big screen TV in the lounge of the bar.
Currently, we are once again driving in the middle of the night to make it to our 4am appointment time in Pleasanton, CA. From there we suspect we may be sent to Salinas for a load out of Fresh Express which would head us back up North, as we have requested home time on or around the 13th. It's been over 4 months since we have been home and it is long over due for us to spend a little time there.
