Interstate 40 and 80


Well, we are back on the road and back in the swing of things. It seems that we have spent a lot of time on I-40 lately. I can now add I-80 to that frequent list too. We drove from Washington thru Nebraska on I-80 to So. Holland IL. From Illinois we received our pre-plan to pick up a load in Indiana and deliver in Calexico California. I enjoyed our little break from the heat, but I am now looking forward to seeing some sunny weather. Randy and I had a great time in Washington, we went to see a movie, went out to dinner, walked around little shops, watched TV and we got to spend quality time with each other. It was a perfect way to get our 34 hour reset. I don’t know of any other job that allows you to have the fun that we have together. 

Oh by the way, Randy has a story to tell you all about a little incident that I had in the truck, so be sure to look for that story soon. All I am going to tell you is that the story starts with us picking up a load at a customer who was located directly behind a candy factory.

I did not bring my camera along this time, so there will not be any pictures for a while. I surely wish I had my camera when we drove east on I-80 out of Portland, Oregon. The scenery was spectacular. Driving all along the Columbia River was a memorable experience and both of us enjoyed it a great deal.

We are planning on going home in the middle of July. Randy will be hitting the big 50 this year, so we will be home for sure to celebrate. Life is good and we are getting more and more comfortable with our new life style.
