Trucks Routed

Hello everyone!

I hope your Thanksgiving was wonderful!

I talked with Walton Feed yesterday and they have figured out which orders will be on which trucks. I will list here what I was told, but please know the dates on these can change because of bad weather or other unforeseen circumstances. But this is what they would like to do. If anything changes, you will be notified right away. Exact times and dates of your delivery will be given as soon as we have it from the driver. Usually we have that information 7-10 days in advance. We do have a new driver, Kelly, (to replace David who passed away) but I think he will be able to give us the schedule that far in advance like David used to. I've worked with Kelly before and he was wonderful to work with too.

Truck #1
High Point, NC
Gastonia, NC
Cashiers, NC

Truck #1 will leave Idaho on Monday, Dec 10th, and deliver to us starting on Saturday, Dec 15th. This truck has orders on it from another group, and he will be delivering to them first, and then our orders will be delivered after that, most likely on the 15th.

Truck #2
Powder Springs GA
Atlanta, GA
Augusta, GA
High Springs, FL
West Palm Beach, FL

Truck #2 will most likely leave Idaho on Monday, Dec 31st, and start delivering on Jan 3rd. It will take a few days to get all of these orders delivered. The exact schedule will be coming as we get closer.

Truck #3
All of the rest of the orders will be on Truck 3 (except Bentonville, AR) and this truck is tentatively scheduled to leave Idaho on Monday, Jan 14th and will begin delivering on the 17th. It will take through the weekend to finish the deliveries. I will send out the list of exactly who is on this truck when I have everything confirmed with Walton Feed.

This is the tentative schedule for our trucks. More info will shortly come, but I wanted to get this schedule out to you right away. Please email me if you have any questions. I do not answer my phone much during the day because I homeschool my children. Emails are quicker and easier for me and I can do them early in the morning and late at night, or when we have short breaks. Have a wonderful week! Melissa : )

Walton Feed Order Update

Hello Everyone!

I'm sorry it has taken a while for the first update. But here is the scoop. We have about 2 1/2 truckloads of food. The first truck will be shipped out the first week of December. It will contain some orders from our group, and some orders from another group that did not have a full truck. The second truck might be sent out mid December. And the third truck will deliver right after the New Year. All of this depends on weather and how quickly they can get their driver back from each delivery. The truck will not come during the Holidays, so don't worry about that. And you will be given plenty of notice of exact time and date of your particular delivery (usually a week to 10 days).

We do not know which orders are on which truck yet. They are routing the trucks, and as soon as I know anything, I will post immediately. I promise!

I will have shipping quotes on these orders this week. These will be ready to ship right away. I will be emailing you as soon as I know anything about your order.

If you have not paid for your order yet, please send payment right away. My address is on the bottom of the spreadsheet in the yellow box. Or you can email me and ask for it. Most have paid, but there are still the few that I am hunting down. : ) If using a credit card, please contact me.

I appreciate your patience on this order. With David passing away (our driver for the past many years), Walton Feed's new ordering system (which is nice for the individual, but laborious for large group orders), and a zillion other reasons (curve balls that life throws at us), this order was delayed a few weeks. But it is well on it's way now, and I will be sending updates regularly.

I hope all of you have a wonderful week!
