More summer work.

Filling up for a second load and taking calls for more.

Marne and I have been very blessed this summer with work for the water trucks.  Better money can be made running water for wildland fires but for now we just keep the deliveries rolling while we wait.  This summer has been super busy so far as the calls for water deliveries continue to come in.  We are just grateful to have work in order to put some more money in the cruising kitty for this upcoming season.  Here is a look at today's double delivery to a grower way up in the woods northeast of Medford.  It took us about 5 hours to make the turn for a single load  We did two.  It was a long day.

 Pulling out of Mom's house early in the morning.'t pretty noisy.

 Almost at the top...

 Marne following me up the hill.

 We climb about 5,000 this speed.  It's definitely a slow go hauling 2000 gallons of water up a mountain. Patience is in order.

 You can't see her but Marne is back in that dust cloud somewhere.

 That green supplies us with US green that we will convert to pesos very soon.

 We definitely live in God's country.

 Waiting our turn at the water fill station.

 Fill 'er up!

 This is where our water goes.

After 40 miles of dirt road you are rewarded with a pair of dirt socks like these.  Shower time!

It was a long day but definitely worth the effort as we added about 2 months of cruising budget in just one day.  While we drive we pass the time thinking about spending time with friends in the warm waters of Mexico.  Until next time.
