    U mean the system that slams the break in every situation that is most certainly not an emergency...

    For example cruising along having a great peaceful day, singing along on the song to a radio or having a laugh at a funny podcast , when all of a sudden you are smashing your face thru the windshield because the AEB thought a reflection off of something from outer space was a stopped car in front of you and decided you needed a blind date with the windshield at 70mph. I hate all the new technology crap they put on the new trucks

    We drove through a Haboob today on 40 like MM 270ish.

    I hope I never find out at what wind velocity the truck becomes an aircraft.

    Just imagine standing in about a 40 to 50 MPH wind, and someone pouring dirt in front of you.

    It actually blew a layer of silt through the door jams. We could smell dirt. Was like the Wizard of Oz.

    Sticks, LOTS OF DIRT, plants, WTF tumbleweeds, all sideways from the passenger side. Like twenty feet, f who knows maybe a lot more, up in the air.

    Truck was seriously shaking. Was down to about 30mph. Visibility was maybe 100 feet.

    The OM was not pleased.

    Whole thing was maybe 10 or 15 miles.

    PA has a divide by default states north and south of PA should too..

    AZ is like arrakis with no spice.

    I don't hate AZ, but how do you do 110'F? I guess it's a dry heat and swamp coolers.

    I was in Flagstaff once when I was a teen 112°,,,, #### that. Dry or not it sucks big. But, 112° in Georgia is definitely worse(only the one time), humid as SOB

    What war resulted in part of Wisconsin becoming the Upper Pennisula of Michigan? The Toledo War. Ohio got Toledo, we got part of Wisconsin. Pretty good trade, I’d say.

    Gotta get going. I want to be home before rush hour.

    I DO feel fabulously rested, though!

    Most states have moments of awesomeness. States without regular rainfall just have less. 2 important dates are coming up Father’s Day and Independence Day great times for grilling animal flesh out on the deck. Not so much in the valley of hot. Virginia has lots of battlefields so is it better than Pennsylvania?
