Time to work a big project.

Going to the Taylor/Martin auction in Las Vegas, Nevada are 30 International daycab trucks. Auction to be held on June 8th or 12th. Not sure when it is.

We had a 1,573 mile deadhead from Oklahoma to California. Joe, Jim, and I took turns in the back seat of our pickup.

Upon arrival in Tracy, California our work was just getting started. Joe and Jim checked the fuel levels in each truck while I did the inspections.

It was so hot that first day. Joe and Jim hooked up their four trucks after all the walking around checking fuel. Joe had a pretty good sunburn at the end of the day.

Leaving Tracy we headed to Gustine/Santa Nella, California for the night. A cool shower, air conditioning, and water by the buckets to slake our massive thirsts and cool off.

Before the cool hotel room, however, we had one problem to take care of. The lug nuts on our trucks needed to be tightened. Some drivers before us had wheels fall off and we needed to prevent that from happening.

Here is a recap of our first day.

We delivered the first set of five this morning. Heading back to Tracy for more.

Have a fantastic weekend everyone.
