First off, I'm still withholding my final assessment of this new team that Craig is on for another month of so, but so far, it almost seems too good to be true.  No load is ever much over 300 miles, we've yet to be close to being out of hours to complete an assignment, and we seem to have plenty of time to stop and take in some of the sights along the way.


Case in point is this huge warehouse fruit stand/antique mall.  It is three stories of utter goodness from the fresh orchard fruits, the vast variety of sweets, canned goodies, fresh lavender, and two levels of vintage finds to feast your eyes on.  What better place to spend your mandatory 30 minute new "hours of service" break. 

It was somewhat crowded when we stopped by, being the four day Fourth of July weekend and all, but with a warehouse this big, we didn't even seem to notice the crowds.  After walking all three levels, we ended up at the most natural place for me..........the homemade ice cream case.  There were only about 6 flavors to choose from, but right there in front was the one I had my eyes on.  Maple flavored cookie dough ice cream!  Oh my...what a treat.
As luck would have it, along with this warehouse on Interstate 90 just outside of Ellensburg, there is another one on Interstate 82 near Yakima.  Both of them on routes we will be traveling several times a week, if not twice a day.  I'd say its a big "win-win" for us and a place we will definitely be stopping at again.
