I know it's been awhile since I last posted. Seems all we have been doing lately is night runs. Trying to sleep during the day, starting our driving day at 10pm and finishing up about twelve to fourteen hours later. For at least the time being, we finished up our last night driving Thursday morning in Pleasanton, after leaving Reno, NV at 10pm the night before. After a staying at the yard in French Camp and resting up, we hit the road early Friday morning headed to Clackamas, OR.
We had picked up a loaded trailer of bananas and made our delivery this morning at the Fred Meyer DC. When we weren't beeped with a new load after we went empty, we decided to head over tot he truck stop in Troutdale, OR to wait it out. With only 4 hours of driving time left on Craig's 70 hour clock, we knew the odds of us getting anything today would be slim. With that in mind, we took off on foot to the outlet stores down the street.
We enjoyed walking and window shopping, although I couldn't resist a pretty new pullover sweater at Eddie Bauer. It rained off and on while we enjoyed the chilly, overcast weather. Finding nothing else to purchase we headed back to the truck stop to our truck. We were dispatched on a new load that doesn't pick up until tomorrow, and delivers in Vernon, CA on Wednesday. Looks like we'll be enjoying some "normal" driving hours for at least the next few days.
