I arrived at the beach around nine last evening.
It was an excellent drive. Except for the one little incident near the South Carolina-Georgia border…
I-95 through Georgia has been under construction for approximately the last century and it shows little sign of improvement. Passing through the "completed" section north of the last bit of construction, I was following a truck pulling multiple trailers when he dropped the right wheels of one or more of them off the main roadbed onto the apron of the road.
Correcting the situation caused both the trailers to fishtail wildly. I slowed to 55 to put a bit more space between me and the wildly swerving truck when the truck behind me (who was coming up on me way too fast) swerved around me causing a bit of fishtailing of his own load. It was a minor thing, both drivers got their rigs back under control, and nothing really happened.
Wherever you are today, I hope you'll have a great day!
