Gosh .... this is going to be a truly boring blog today with absolutely NO accidents to report. For which I am exceedingly thankful!!!
I was still watching the weather, mostly for the wind speeds. I don't mind driving in the rain, I just don't like to be pushed back and forth across the freeway. It wasn't looking all that great. Since I'm always up so early anyway, I decided to head on out.
I'm pretty sure my RV park neighbors weren't all that happy to hear my truck start up and a little slam banging, but that's the way it goes. I pretended I was their alarm clock and was on the road by 6:00 am. I've always been a slow-ER driver, not needing to go 65-75 mph like most RV's. I just sit back, enjoy the ride and let everyone pass me by. If I timed it right, I would miss the wind and rain.
That meant it took me 40 minutes just to get OUT of Bakersfield. No sir, the construction is NOT finished and the Hwy 99 North turnoff is still a big fat mess, made worse by those drivers who want to scream by you, just to slam on the brakes and try to squeeze in can opener style.
The rest of the three hour trip was uneventful as I cruised along at 58 mph. I guess the crazies aren't out that early in the morning.
