    I think I'll wait until retirement. And go in a car. In the summer.

    They have a high wind advisory for today. So...lets see how long it stays open.

    Even with clear weather it doesn't matter, it's like being in a storm.

    I was through there 4x this past winter the whole 400 miles both ways. I know what it's like.

    Need to keep an eye out on case my dispatch sends me back there again.
     
    D.Tibbitt and LtlAnonymous Thank this.

    You know, two reasons I blame that dash cam driver... He was going way too fast for conditions. I saw that ice glare from the sunlight, and my cheeks clenched. And then wouldn't you assume when the guy who is trying to pass you hits the brakes that something is going on that you can't see? That maybe that driver has a vantage point that you're lacking? He should have been decelerating much sooner.

    Blinkers on and all that but still too fast. Still too fast!
    WY I-80 always reaps the biggest harvest March-April. It is not Spring there yet.

    You heard his 4 ways but no CB, those types of crashes could be minimized if most driver ran radios.
