you and I are on the same page...


I thought that I was being "proactive" when a semi T-boned me out of the blue.


what I did not allow for, was him jamming on his brakes so hard, the ABS on his right rear tractor tire failed, and that steered the truck 90 to the left....


I was following him a full 100 feet back, and in the HOV lane, he was in the #1 lane next to me.


and that put him directly across in front of me on my HOV lane..... I lost six months of work,
and never have regained my memory fully... and never will be able to accommodate big changes in ambient temperatures. if it is over 85F it is time for me to find an Air Conditioned space, and right now.


I now keep an ice chest on a trailer hitch rack, with ice water and a Cooling Vest....
if I get to sweating, have to stop and pull on that ice cold vest...
