Sometimes You're the Windshield ...

and sometimes you're the bug, and other observations from driving to South Lake Tahoe -- and back.
  • Ninety-five percent of drivers would most likely benefit from a re-edification around basic rules of the road.
  • Cows out to pasture appear to have a care-free existance, albeit short-lived.
  • I'm in favor of a national policy mandating cleanliness in public restrooms -- or at least the option of functional soap dispensers.
  • Highway 16, Nashville and X Country are the most compelling satellite radio options.
  • If the car ahead of you is speeding, it's OK for you to do the same.
  • Mud slides are unpredictable.
  • However, the DOT frequently over-estimates road-clearing-times.
  • Which is good news.
  • Snow-capped mountains and year-round Christmas trees are addictively appealing.
  • RV drivers are pretty gutsy.
  • Eddie Rabbit rules.
  • Relaxing weekend road trip essentials: glasses, cork screw, luxurious wine, iPod.
  • Relaxing weekend road trip non-essential: 118 steps to the front door.
  • Silver lining: super-quiet snooze time & breath-taking mornings.
