Thannks for the alt. route experiences~!
I'm sure we've all had a certain amount of Jersey barriers whiteknuckle time..
BTW, Why haven't they made those things with a escape hole for some poor trapped animal?? Just an observation.
Sounds like you should be a considering a "Diesel" after all that noise ...lol
Share this one with you: References to the license plate.
When I drove to El Paso, TX., to pick up the "Silver Turtle", the PO had made prior arrangement for a TEMP PLATE from NM. (Figure that one out) It was for 5 days, starting on the day of my arrival.
That said, on the day of departure, I put the TEMP PLATE inside of the rear window. For the next 2400 miles(give or take) I drove across the country with (unbeknown to me) no plates displayed as it had slipped down to floor.
So, not only was it not displayed, it was also expired.~! It wasn't until I stopped at a Truck Stop in Pa., that I observed two Pa State Police officers looking my A/S over for quite some minutes.
Finally, they both pulled out and, didn't say anything to me.
Curious abt what was the object of their extented stares, I walked around the back and, had a moment of panic. No TEMP PLATE~!!
I opened the door and, went to the back of the unit looking for it. Found it behind the end of the bed toward the floor. Whew, I was relieved, only to have that dashed when I realized that..."it was expired"~!!
At this point, I was only abt half a day's drive from home. Which, was beginning to look awhole lot longer.
I replaced the plate in the window and, as I was pulling out I looked nervously in all directions.(Thinking here was, they're waiting for me...they do that..right?)
That first trip was made with:
1) No displayed license plate(for how any miles..is anyones guess)
2) It had expired~!
3)No extended mirrors..(never, never again)
4)Solo trip.(Actually, this was a bonus...considering all the mistakes..lol)
5)No road maps, just the 'compass nose'.
6)Angel's wings wrapped around us..
7)Prior towing experiences>?? What is that?
Just for the record, the Pa. State Police just went abt their business.
I made it home. Would I do the same thing again? Sure.
Did I have fun? YEAH~
Because I was smiling the whole trip..
I had my A/S~!~
So, thanks again Kevin for the reminder of, what it's all about~!
