Happy New Year to all!! I been on the road home for the last 2 days. Hope to make it in Texas by tomorrow nite. Been to Mountain Home, ID to take my daughter a car for them to use. My daddy n I don't like all this cold winter snowing mess!! Been glad to get out if it. We are in Laramie, Wy for the nite. Glad it will be sunshining on us all the way home tomorrow. Already been in 3 spin outs on the way up. Scared the crap outta me but my daddy handled that well. Just wish 18 wheeler truckers stay on their side of the road after they pass us. They moved over in our lane n would have knocked us off the road n mountains are not my friends either. Sigh. Just wanna be home!!

18 wheelers are s'posed to stay in the right lane, and try to get back to that lane as soon as possible-especially the newer drivers and the California drivers. When they have more experience they will wait longer to return to their lane to avoid throwing road debris on you. Most 18 wheeler drivers are much younger than you realize and are only 'Professionals' because they hold a license. Not because they have experience. Many have never driven ice before and do not realize your vehicle doesn't drive the same as theirs. I drive 18 wheels, and am here to tell you they not only scare ME - but get my tongue lashing constantly at their uncaring unthinking non driving habits...and I have driven all 48 states now since 1984. They try to call me ol school and laugh at me, but they dont have the answers I have, and I usually keep em mad.. its good for em
