Finally a break since being at the house and waiting for anything going West and home!!!
6-13===377 miles–unload, reload in Oakland, Ca (large fork lift , about 22,000#) up against the step of the lower deck (38′ deck)
6-14===465 miles–load another small lift that goes on the top deck (10’deck) about a 100 miles from the last pick/up ,head North into Oregon for another pick/up. ==fuel–150 gals.
6-15===368 miles–arrive to pick/up another small lift and 1 bundle of shelving, and 2 bundles of racks, goes on the back of lower deck, fills out the trailer, last p/up.
6-16===323 miles–We don’t have to hurry too much as the first and third pick/up will come off at Billings Mt. on MOnday morning.
6-18===317 miles–get directions and drive to the consignee in downtown area of Billings. They hire a roll off tow truck to unload large lift and shelving, racking, 1 small lift, etc.———Reload 2-over head cranes sections going to Williston, ND. which took quite awhile! Was supposed to be a small LTL (less than a truckload). at the same place.====Next, Drive to Glendive, Mt. and unload the first small lift (dead battery) with a large lift from there. Continue onto Williston, North Dakota and try for over an hour to find a place to park (its a zoo there because of the oil patch bust and hundreds of trucks all over the place……….) That evening after a storm that came thru with hurricane winds and hail for about a half hour full force, we ended up at the local Applebee’s and had a good visit with a carpenter that came up from Vegas after loosing his home and work there. Has been busy ever since! There is soo much work in ND!!
6-19===Get directions and arrive to unload 2- crane sections that will be going into a building that handles drill pipe etc. Now I have only a couple of agents locally to get me out of this area and back to the NW. Although all the agents in our system can see my message in my screen that I need to get back NW so if any of these see that and have contacts here, they can be in touch with them. So far nothing…………..wait patiently……….
Yesterday, I took a nap because of being so weary. Daddy-o added to his drawing of his dream boat that he would like to build at some point. It has all the nooks and crany’s filled with extra live wells and plenty of room for all the crab traps in the back accessable to bait with ease while unloading those succulent little critters for as much as you want later at camp…………12 allowed for each on board, if just us two, 24 crab takes awhile to cook and spin the blender with margarita’s……yes!
Another beautiful view of Mt. Shasta in Ca.
MJ tying down spare things on trailer getting ready to go……..
Daddy-o scouping up some of the hail from the storm just a few minutes before………..
