Sues van was written off by the insurers so we bought this one, it's a 2005 Buick Rendezvous.



Sorry, but time is flying by and I seem to have fallen behind with this blog. I am weekended here at the TA Truckstop, Livingston, California. Donner Pass on I80 in California was closed Thursday night for a while and when it reopened snow chains were required. My philosophy is that if conditions are bad enough that snow chains are required then I have no business being out there in it, so I got myself comfy at the TA in Sparks, Nevada prepared to wait it out.
When the restrictions were lifted next day at noon I had already missed my delivery appointment, 10am, and was still 4 1/2 hrs away with my reload to Richmond BC to be loaded before 2 pm, no chance.
I got my delivery done by 5pm but I am now stuck here till Monday for a reload. I can think of worse places, it's a pleasant 18c and warm sunshine compared to the -10c and snow back home, sorry Sue.
The top pic is the trip before this one.
