Santa Clara Ca. to Vancouver Washington in 12 Hours
It took 12 hours of serious driving to get a part from Santa Clara to Vancouver Washington. The company needed this part or it was not going to make its production deadline. I started out at 8:00pm. Loaded up the van in Santa Clara and started driving over to I5. Music blasting from my I pod connected to my sound system I traveled non stop to Redding Ca.It was dark and little traffic on I5. It was raining when I got into Oregon around 3am. And arrived tired but excited in the fog in Portland. I crossed the last bridge into Vancouver Washington around 8:30am. Made it to the delivery at 9am. The guys at receiving were elated at my fast delivery. They recommended that I sleep at the Homewood Suites a few blocks away.
