Set a spell, take your shoes off, ya'll come back now, ya hear?
If you follow really close, I think it's called drafting in racing, wouldn't that save you gas?Manzanita@Wannabuyaduck
Until he slammed on the brakes. Which WOULD save gas. But, then again, I'd problem have a whole new set of problems.
Don't you hate when you can't pass!
Big, slow trucks, the bane of my highway experience...
I try to avoid them as much as possible (which isn't easy when you rely on public transport). In a previous job, I learned just how drunk they got before they got behind the wheel.
How did your windsheild fare?Mine looks like a constellation.
@Giggle: Yeah, I know. Especially 3rd grade.@Sub-Radar-Mike: I dropped more F Bombs on that trip than the last time relatives came for a visit.@Vinny: This was just before I got into a 10 mile back-up on I-81 in Virginia. Apparently, a tractor-trailer flipped over. Your comment makes me suspicious as to WHY he flipped his truck....@Mary: Many bugs gave their lives so that I couldn't see through my windshield.
Gotta appreciate the selflessness of those bugs!
According to the photo, the left lane seemed to be open to pass; unless that was a two lane road, in which case you had plenty of room to pass him on the right. I hate driving in that region, toll roads everywhere. US route 1 zigs and zags every block or so.Don't forget to check your oil.
Ha. What Mary said!
@Eva: The last thing that goes through a bug's mind before he hits your windshield: his ass.@Anthony: Very sharp-eyed! We were actually behind a HUGE line of vehicles (including a bunch of %$#*&!! trucks) trying to get off I-81 because there was this massive wreck. Didn't do us much good, though. Traffic was snarled for an hour. Good thing-the people in the wreck weren't hurt (but all those bugs didn't fare as well).@dbs: Pretty in the night sky. Not so much on my windshield.
@Manzanita: Sorry about that. Too many 'problems' in my response. And that's a problem.
I hate driving behind, alongside or eek, worst stuck between two lorrys!! :o(
Those wide loads are very frustrating. Sorry, Al.xoRobyn
Especially if the wide loads are NAMED Laurie. See, how clever I am? I commented on TWO comments in ONE response!
That'll be me & my son next week. Two hours of truck traffic between home & Windsor/Detroit (the worst stretch of highway in the developed world!).
You've got me beat. You're going near Detroit! Go with God. And a bullet-proof vest.
