After two weeks on the road in snow, sleet, rain and highway dirt, we were looking a little worse for wear. We needed to spruce up a bit. We had been watching for truck washes for several hundred miles and I even downloaded an app, Blue Beacon, to find a good one. We were very nervous about letting anyone touch our gorgeous silver bullet, but we were equally vain. Luck landed us at a Blue Beacon truck wash just minutes from our destination.
We joined a long line of eighteen wheelers waiting their turn. From my limited experience, it seems that truck washes are pretty manual. Unlike car washes which service passenger vehicles, trucks come in varying sizes and shapes and have varying needs. The more manual process becomes more variable to needs.
We watched as the refrigerated food truck before us was scrubbed down inside and out. Then it was our turn.
We gleamed in the late afternoon sun. Our beautiful silver bullet looked brand new and we were ready for our close up with Jim’s family.
