Wednesday 12th July 1916

Mr and Mrs William Warwick and 4 year old daughter Daisy began the first long haul truck run. They left Seattle in a GMC truck with rubber tires loaded with 2,000 pounds of Carnation Milk products on a trip sponsored by the Seattle Chamber of Commerce to promote National Parks Highway. They arrived 70 days later in New York. The return trip, beginning on October 9, took somewhat longer; the Warwick’s didn’t get back to Seattle until the end of January, 1917.
