I just traveled from north of Detroit to Atlanta, to Tampa, to Pt St Lucie Florida, then reversed the route.. I looked at the forecast weather for Atlanta and decided to get out while the 'gettin was good'
My friends there told me that the 10 minute ride home from work on Tuesday afternoon took over an hour.
For the most part the people on I-75 were OK, but around the cities, well they are dangerous..
And what SMITTY said: some idiot passes me, I have my cruise set at 75mph.. the said idiot changes to my lane, the slows to 70. I slow and wait, maybe it's the slight hill we're climbing.. but no, the idiot does 70 downhill too. So on the next hill I move over to pass, to get back to my choosen cruise speed of 75.. and.. I'm at 80 going up the hill and the *censored* is still pacing me.. He has NO IDEA what he's up against.. At 95mph he gives up, slows down, I pull over and hit 'resume' soon I'm at 75 again.. and the *censored* tries it again.. I just accellerate and he can't keep up.. I leave it at 85 for a mile or two then hit resume. never saw the *censored* again.. I guess he thought a pickup with a big box trailer behind it would be easy pickin's for his *censored* personality and driving aggression.
The professional truck drivers are a pleasure to drive with and around.. Give them a little courtesy, flash your lights when it is clear for them to move over. They'll do the same for you [towing a trailer].
My 3700 mile jaunt went well, other than having my trailer tires decide to tell me that they had reached their age limit.. LOL.. $ new tires at a Discount tire store in Georgia.. $488 for 4, load range E, 10 year road hazard and de-ply non-prorated 100% replacement coverage.. as long as the tire is not worn out.. pretty good.. If I'd had that coverage on the former tires, the 4 new ones would have been free.. they all had 3/8" of tread.
