Happy Halloween

We get to see a lot of slick Halloween decorations while on our travels but the Yakima Training Center in Yakima WA was the funniest!  These ladies and gentleman went all out inside and outside.  The base was having a decorating contest and they didn't believe they would win!  They said the warehouse had really went over board with a haunted house.  We really enjoying seeing the decorations and talking with these ladies. 


One of the things we commented on when we first arrived at the base was the gate guards and their professionalism.  They searcher our truck inside and out and when finished they stopped to talk to Molly and chat.  Both Bob and I liked their attitudes on how they searched the truck and how friendly they were.  Next came our police escort to our secure area for the night.  He was also very friendly pointed us to where the restroom facilities were located and wishing us a good night.  The next morning one of the personnel came out to the truck and let us know they were ready for our paperwork and to unload us.  Every person we spoke to at the base at a very upbeat happy attitude that really showed in how quickly they took care of unloading us and getting our paperwork signed.  I would have to rate this base as number 1 in great attitudes and a fun place to deliver to!
