    Hearing the truckers on the CB reveals they take pleasure in suddenly pulling in front of your faster car, especially going up hill. All you can do is know what's ahead and making sure you overtake the truck long before it hits the hill.

    How about an ad from the local funeral home?

    Outsiders don't enter the hoods & cause the blight. Their plight is the result of the locals poopin in their mess kits.

    If left lane camping is wrong & speeding is wrong - do two wrongs make a right? Yes they do, so pass on the right! It's not wrong.

    Since 15 March I've driven 3,000 miles on a road trip that included Cuppertino, Walnut Creek, Indio, Yosemite, & home using I-5 through OR into CA, I-280, I-680, & I-505. I-280 included a soccer mom's car rearending a stopped vehicle in which both cars were totaled. Don't know about injuries. On the way North on a state road to connect with I-5 we saw the worst crash where the two lane road turned right, but the adverse driver drove into an oncoming car head on each doing at least 55 mph. As we passed by the scene we saw CPR being applied to someone laying on the ground about 100' from the highway. Each car was so damaged, it was not determined what they were.

    CA drivers are first to launch away from a crosswalk & race each other to the next light braking hard. The bikers split lanes throwing caution to the wind. While driving 5 over the limit in the middle lane, the idiots race up to us - hugging our bumper expecting us to get out of their way while on my right is an 18 wheeler. When climbing a hill with only two lanes, it is not uncommon to see an 18 wheeler pass another. I clocked one taking 1.4 miles to slowly pass the trucker. I also noticed the truckers swing over to the center lane to allow a brother trucker to get on the freeway, but when the car wants on board, the trucker stays the course. In general, it is wise to be very alert while traversing the major highways as the Californicates don't behave any better in OR.

    The most considerate drivers were noticed in Menlo Park, Walnut Creek, & Indio. They notice our WA plates and motion us to go first at the 4 way stop signs. We arrived home w/o a scratch. PTL.
