    17D3D300-B96B-4092-8212-9F8717C1EDBD.jpeg Lowe's Distribution Center in Mount Vernon, TX yesterday. Guy was heading east on the frontage road and missed the entrance. Thought he would make U turn in this little gravel drive. Didn’t have the room so he tried to power through it in the grass. Didn’t work and he got stuck. Was waiting for wrecker when I went past.

    Agreed with opus. Far easier to block the road briefly than tempt fate with unknown ground conditions.

    kinda odd how he missed the entrance, though......the off ramps feed right into it.

    I wonder, isnt that local fiber internet and a gas line on the left top of bank that looks bent like a tractor tried to come around there?

    Im no tracker but it sure looks like it.

    For Christ sake, it's Texas ,not NYC, all he had to do it's just keep driving to next exit and turn around, that's simple!

    Exactly. Wonder how many drivers don’t notice that after multiple trips thru that state.
