After our trip to the far East, we were headed back to the far West. James’ driver manager called with some exciting news; we were getting a brand new truck and trailer. We had to go to the company yard in Utah to pick them up, normally we aren’t too excited to stay at the yard since there isn’t much for us to do there, but having a brand new truck was very exciting. The nice part about living on a truck is that everything is mostly packed away already in boxes or bins, so there wasn’t much to “pack”.
The cloudy sky in Nebraska rendered amazing photos of sun rays bursting from behind the clouds. James was so excited for the opportunity to have a new truck, he talked about it all the way through Nebraska.
James’ driver manager made sure to give us a couple of loads while we traveled West. We have been to three different locations in Colorado numerous times. My favorire location is in Colorado Springs, that is where we can see Pikes Peak the best. But most of the land we travel in this state is dlat and farm land. This is not what I imagined the state to look like.
We spent nearly 2 days going through Wyoming. Taking Interstate 80 through most states will allow one to see such different terrain and changes in the sky. We can have clear bright blue skies for hours and them it seems all of a sudden we are heading into thick menacing dark clouds filled with rain. Wyoming is one of my favorite “daydream” states; while it does seem to go on forever and can be a bit boring, it is also a (mostly) two lane interstate speckled wit herds of cows (and bison, I’m told, though I haven’t seen any yet). I spend a lot of time staring out the window.
