    Garden City is at the bottom of a pretty good grade on US89... If you cant stop there are a few buildings across the T intersection, then the lake.

    If you are going to crash, might as well pick a beautiful place.

    So how long until they try and ban trucks from the route because of dummies doing stuff like this?

    Did this route once uphill with propane tanker empty. The tank trailer was shorter then 53' but tandems were about 48' . My luck it was slow time on tourists and night time because both lanes were occupied on the sharp curves. NEVER AGAIN.

    It's a steep windy road running east into Garden City on 89. You just have to know you need to go back down a steep hill after the summit....
