    Well Oregon is sunny and beautiful. Actually nice. Headed for Modesto. I seriously need a burrito.

    Hey Mr. @otterinthewater ... sorry I changed my plans at the last minute.... After checking the weather forecast for I-84 OR and found freezing fog at night and early morning... I decided to leave one hr later... and also to get one more hr of sleep.... Wish I had met you for a quick shaking hands and "hello/goodbye"....
    Arrived at that TA in Troutdale at 10 am local time and parked at the (almost) same spot where I was last time...

    Called the receiver nearby and asked if they could unload me today instead of tomorrow morning and they said YES! :blob5:
    They unloaded me at 2 pm local time and then I rushed to another TA.... about 40 miles from my next shipper in Oregon... rescheduled pick up for 10 am tomorrow instead of 1 pm... :thumbup:

    Nope! Not me. I’m in a Prostar and I wash my tractor. I like it clean.

    Next time I’ll have more time (he says laughing knowing full well he has no clue).

    I enjoyed at least trying!

    Hey.... if you see "my" truck... :biggrin_2554: after all that snow and dirt in WY and UT and ID.... :biggrin_2552:
    I keep the windows and windshield and mirrors and headlights and other lights and DOT tape clean... but the rest.... :rolleyes::biggrin_25512: No time for truck wash... waiting for the next heavy rain to wash the truck... naturally... :biggrin_2559:
