I finally got the call from May. Well, sorta. They don't have a truck for me yet but they want me to go to Idaho and pick up a truck for somebody else and bring it back to Oregon. I was curious as to why the the person that was getting this truck was not sent after it. But, what the hey, it's money in my pocket. The trip is worth about 125.00, that's better than waiting at home making nothing. I was told that they hope to have a truck for me by the time I get back from Idaho.
As far as I know, this is my itinerary;
Thursday - I will go to the May yard in Salem Oregon and hitch a ride with another driver to the Payette Idaho yard.
Friday - Drive back to Oregon.
After that - I hope they have a truck available for me so I can start making the big bucks.
In the interest of wanting to share photo's with all of my blog followers but not wanting to lug camera gear all over the country, I decided to compromise my principals today and purchased a point n shoot camera. It is very difficult to make the switch to a camera that does all the thinking for me and takes the creative decisions out of my hands. On the other hand, I really didn't want to pack one of the DSLR's just yet.
First road trip in the works and camera in hand. Hopefully, great photo's and stories are right around the corner.
