As many of you have read, I love to pass SOB's. I find great sport in it for some twisted reason. I see one up ahead and the gun is loaded and cocked. I set my sight and it becomes a game to pass. This Sunday I had a hard time with the SOB I came across just North of York Pa.
I saw this and was smitten. She was just tooling along at 55mph in the right hand lane.
The odd thing was that I slowed down too and for about five miles I just rode side by side admiring the ribbed aluminum sides and the tremendous roar of the diesel engine. This girl has some charm that captivated me like I have never experienced before.
The driver gave me the best thumbs up I ever received. The air horn was a nice touch too.
Really hated to beat it on up the road, but home was calling and 55 was too slow for Anna and I.
Looks worse than it is, but it was making guys at Chevron station (in Sisters, OR) nervous. I believe it's been somewhat contained now (2 hours later). OK, I have not hit any traffic to speak of and made it to Prineville just now. You eclipsoids: Eugene/Springfield Hwy 126. Stayed on 126, 242 closed, to Sisters (looks like party town), 126 to Redmond, north to Smith Rock Road, alternative to prineville, no traffic at all. Bartender in Prineville said they got traffic straightened out yesterday. So that's my up-to-date report. It might get crazy tomorrow, but this is just one more example of talking to local people instead of relying on yr. iPhone or yelp. -
