Mixed Bag of Trucks and Destinations
After arriving in the yard, I transferred over another Hino tow truck and a small excavator onto the trailer with the Hino truck I picked up in Vernon and headed back out on the road. My first stop was Whitecourt, Alberta where I unloaded the small excavator and headed for Legal, Alberta to drop off the tow truck. I spent the night in a parking lot of the local pub in Bon Accord, Alberta and when I awoke the next morning I discovered the parking lot was all ice covered. Needless to say I had to chain up one set of wheels to get out (lesson learned). After delivering the tow truck, I headed for Camrose, Alberta to drop off the last Hino truck and pick up a small engine for delivery from the same company. I then headed for Nisku, Alberta to pick up another engine (diesel) before heading into Edmonton to transfer the two engines onto a preloaded trailer for delivery at a later date. I then dropped the trailer that I was hooked onto in the same yard and bobtailed for Sherwood Park, Alberta to hook onto a 45′ van with a load of personal belongings to a family who was moving to Vancouver Island. I ran into some snow in Blue River and Little Fort, but it wasn’t sticking to the road. A sign that spring is just around the corner I hope. Delivered the van to the barge in Surrey, BC where it will be picked up on the island for delivery to Lake Cowichan. Bye for now.
