Northwest and Southwest Runs (Tour of Duty 6-14 2007)

6-14 April 2007

After some time at home it was time to go back to work and I was looking forward to getting out of the rut between Dodge Center, MN and Burlington, ON (see previous trip report for details). I was told about a truck in La Quinta, CA going to Portland, OR so I rented a car and drove to La Quinta and got to the shipper. It got to around 90F in La Quinta which is in the Coachella Valley/Palm Springs area.

Trip: La Quinta, CA to Portland, OR 1,088 paid miles Route: Interstate 10 to California 30 to Interstate 215 to US395 to California 58 to California 99 to California 46 to Interstate 5 to Interstate 205

It was about 90F in La Quinta when I started out. I experience a very few raindrops going up the Cajon Pass. I had dinner at Domingo's in Boron, CA. I had a steak sandwich; the steak was OK but the fries were not very good. I did enjoy their Tortilla Chips. I called it a night in Mojave.

(To be continued)
