Happy is a relative thing....
Just cleaned the snow off me car.
Now off to test the icy highways.
Smile. Be Happy.
Only way to fly....
When being run out of town, get in front of the crowd and make it appear like a parade.
You don't want to be driving a vehicle, Russ. Not on icy roads in a state of euphoria resulting from your rediscovery of your 'Are You Experienced' post.
As your attorney, I advise you to stay put and drink some orange juice.
"Take this, brother; may it serve you well."
Me, on the other hand, urge you to get behind that wheel and show them icy roads who's boss
One last thought before I hit the highway.
I like the Thai mindset (yes, I'm generalizing).
And I was determined to maintain it when I came back.
It lasted for awhile.
But when the temperature rests at minus twenty for two weeks and it just keeps snowing and where everywhere is a skating rink.....it can't be done.
This I have recognized.
(Look out, look out!
Look out, look out!)
Driving in snow isn't that bad. Of course you get to watch the road and not much scenary.
Gave her a good climb up a mountain hill. As long as I stick to the roadway....think it should do okay.
I have to do a nasty mountain summit in the next few days.
Now I have to figure a way to get some music into the car.
All I can get on the radio is a choice between a serious Christian station...and yes, country music non-stop.
I remember the fun of driving on icy roads, especially when all goes silent as you discover a patch of black ice and the wheels lose traction.
Wear your seatbelt Russ. I wouldn't be alive today if I hadn't.
I always wear my seat belt.
My worst experience ever was coming down a snowy hill, have my car do three complete three sixties on the way down ....through a concrete railway overpass ...and ending up on the other side of the trestle. Fortunately on the highway.
I will be driving with great care.
Of course, you can't do anything about a vehicle coming at you in the other lane.
I will be doing my blessings ritual before embarking.....
My worst experience was in a Nissan Sylvia on an ice-covered bend in a country lane at 4am.
A sudden silence warned me that I was on black ice, and the only thing to do was decelerate....at which point the turbo kicked in.
I wound up on the other side of the road, upside down. It is remarkable how such situations can concentrate the mind.
