LOL! Now that I have the blog, I'm not sure what I'm going to put in here! Ever had one of those days??
Haven't heard from the boss lady yet this evening so I don't know if I'll be on the road tomorrow. Oh, I drive "Flag Car" or "Escort Car" for oversize/wide/overheight loads. So if you see a car on the road with flashing yellow lights on top, OVERSIZE LOAD banners on front and back, it just might be me! So far I've been as far west as Arkansas and as far south as Mobile, AL. Oh, I'm based in Southern West Virginia.
It can be fun! There are alot of interesting people out there believe me! Ya run into alot of crotchety farts too! Imagine following a oversize load, TWENTY-THREE foot wide (takes up both lanes on a 2 lane road...) and people for some reason do N O T want to get off the road??? Ok, add to this that you're driving on the side of a mountain, the traffic coming at you is up against the mountain and there is a pull-off that they can get out of the way, but they don't want to take it (????)... and there's a sheer drop off of the other side.... what would you do? AAAACCCKKK!!!!
So, please please please, if you see something like this, please be nice and pull off as best you can. The escorts and the driver of the load want you to be safe, please pull off as soon as you can and be patient with the escorts and the driver.
