Title: RANDOMS FROM WASHINGTON from Nighthawk USA port of entry
Post by: JJG on September 30, 2012, 01:58:44 AM
After cruising through Keremeos along HWY 3 in BC, there is a port of entry at Nighthawk USA, before you get to Osooyoos. We crossed at this point and headed west/southwest till we got to I5 and headed back north to Surrey
firsat up after a lonely scenic road comes the town of Loomis where this is taken

Loomis? Wow! I had relatives in Loomis! Well, a little ways up along Palmer Lake, which is the lake just north of Loomis, but their address was Loomis. So I have been to the area several times, and if you have more pics from the Loomis area, I would love to see them. 8)

It looks like you were wayyy off in the hills Jim.
My favourite is the old Dodge.

Jan: Wow is right, who knew that could and would happen. We stopped at Split Rock, which I think is on Palmer lake, I'll check and post the pic later, it was stunning and the water was refreshing but if I actually dove in I would be OK :o!! We waded through up above the knees and was tempting.

You're right Rob, it was a lonely road along that first stretch, and the hills are like rolling hills of dead grass and very dry!

Jim.

Yeah, I've waded in Palmer Lake, too... And fished in it with my relative, Ed. :) He and his wife, Wilma, had a beautiful property on the east shore, right off the road there. They used to live on the WA coast, but sold their property there, and got enough money to build a pretty huge house with plenty of room for visiting family and relatives - like us! Haha! They're both passed away now, though, and their children, who live on the WA coast and Spokane, now use the house as a vacation house. I have some truck pics from last time I drove through Loomis, which was last spring (just to see the place again), but they're at home... I'll have to post them when I get back. Can't wait to see your pic of Split Rock, which is a name that sounds familiar, although I can't really place it. I bet I can when I see the pic, though. :)

This is at the bottom end SE part of the waters, looking north to what I think the name derives from:
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/068.jpg)
there is also one with the wife in the water but I better ask her permission to post it, she isn't here at the moment so I'll hold off!

It sure does bring back memories. 8) This would be a bit farther north than my relatives' place, I believe, but I'm pretty sure it's Palmer Lake. I mean, driving from Nighthawk to Loomis, I'm pretty sure Palmer Lake's the only lake you're driving past, so... :) Thanks for posting!  :)

Jan, that lake is pretty long, it hooks upward to the east, and btw, that is the SW part, not the SE as I mentioned earlier, sorry!

there are a lot of Cold Storage places along that region and this one is just east of Brewster on US 97 SB, showing a mixed fleet, the trailers are interesting as they are straddle carriers, able to pick up a row of loaded fruit bins out of a field by backing over top of the row and lifting under the bins, picking the row up and driving off. They unload the same way at the Cold Storage. Didn't catch any better ones loaded or loading as we had to hustle back home for Monday work. There is a side view (somewhat) later

The old Dodge looks in pretty good shape.

that Dodge would be as solid as it looks Lee, if it spent it's life there! It is VERY dry there all year and they don't use salt up in WA if it snows, they lay down sand............WHAT a concept!! We don't get much for snow either here but they do put salt down.

I agree Jon, I did take a head on shot first and went back to get that side profile, I think it does make the truck.

There is a lot of farm country in the north of the State and to the east, the mountains set in real quick leaving very few roads to discover. We did head a little south first which ended up going more eastward, here is a KW we nabbed in the country
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket190/WASHINGTON%20Pictures/033_zpsmy1cejfo.jpg)
and another T800 farm truck on the farm
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket190/WASHINGTON%20Pictures/034_zps4kcd2lty.jpg)
this Peterbilt met us right in the curve, he was heading right into Everson, which was the next town along the way
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket190/WASHINGTON%20Pictures/036_zpsiokhzq6x.jpg)
going thru town we caught a Cascadia headin West on WA544
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket190/WASHINGTON%20Pictures/037_zps6njag3tu.jpg)
in the town we took a quick break at this Union 76 gas station, for a Sunday, the truck traffic on this 2 lane was pretty steady, here wifey nabbed this Petebilt before he got around the corner
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket190/WASHINGTON%20Pictures/040_zpsv6qerm8g.jpg)
these trucks were all coming down WA Hwy9 which comes right down from Sumas Wa/Abbottssford BC, next one up was this step deck with building materials hooked into another Pete
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket190/WASHINGTON%20Pictures/041_zpsuluwaqvu.jpg)
he stopped, proceed a Left then a right to continue South on 9
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket190/WASHINGTON%20Pictures/041_zpsuluwaqvu.jpg)
right hot on the heels comes Can Am West with a Pete and what seemed to be a wood chip bin/container(?)
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket190/WASHINGTON%20Pictures/043_zpsed1gvm7o.jpg)

(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket190/WASHINGTON%20Pictures/044_zpskjm5jet7.jpg)
 a few more trucks went by, we headed northward to cross back into Abbottsford, doing just an afternoon rounder. This FLD120 and KW tankers were along the way
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket190/WASHINGTON%20Pictures/61dc34e0-fee0-496e-a4c0-7469efe7b929_zpssezvtrla.jpg)
and this Kenworth threesome was another on route

That is a cool picture of the Van Laar Peterbilt in the curve.When we where down there a couple years ago I came across a farm with a bunch of cool old trucks ,it was between the border and Lynden.You may remember me posting the pictures.It was right at the junction where you would head towards the Sumas crossing or Aldergrove.Did you happen to notice that place or maybe all the trucks are gone?

Rob, I did not see any oldies on the Sumas side but found that one I posted earlier here on the Lynden side. I thought your catches were more standard type trucks IRRC whereas these are primarily big off road? He did have some interesting cabs and some that I couldn't see from the weeds.

That Cascadia tanker with what appears to be SMT on the cab door looks like it may be a former Kings County Truck Lines tractor, which is odd as KCTL was bought out by Ruan Transport around 2005 or 2006, with the Cascadia launching in 2007, so perhaps an early test unit of some kind as the livery is identical.

I thought so too Jon, when I took the shot, King County was on my mind, when I looked at the name on the door, I just figured I was wrong.....and not seeing a KCTL in years -not realizing they were gone- I just thought maybe that was an ex tractor.

                 The trucks I came across were highway trucks.There was a couple cabovers,a 1959 Pete dump truck,a couple mid 60s Petes,a Diamond Reo and a few others.They were right beside the highway and easy to see so maybe they are gone now.

then, onto to Sumas WA to returrn to Canada, the awesome find!  Years ago Rob G mentioned a bunch of old trucks in Sumas, this is what he must have meant, a quick point and shoot, from cabovers to vintage conventionals,

now that I know where they are, I hope to get back there on my own so I can find out what other cool trucks are on site

heading up WA HWY 9 North to Abbotsford, a KW greets us

This one is a 378 set-back front axle.   The older style grille is visible (thinner wrap around compared to 367).  Note the location of the headlamps on the 378 (and 357) hood appear to be further aft of the grille than on the 367.  The 367 having a deeper surround appears to pull the lamps forward.

(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/edited-image_zpsv7q6xsib.png)
For comparison, here is a 367
(https://media.fotki.com/2vMwy8TWxvLBB.jpg)

367's grille cleaned up some of the odd lines of the 378/357 SBFA grille.   Of all of the 2008+ traditional style grilles, the 367 looks the best.  The 389's grille shell is cluttered with fasteners (done to enhance the look of a traditional grille shell) which disrupt the look.
