Yeah Dimond should be avoided. Unless it's 3am, then it should be clear.

naahhh - I never drive the Glenn at rush hour. And when I do drive it, I stay in the right hand lane so y'all can pass me. And I'm usually doing the speed limit when I get passed, or a little lower.

Oh - and I don't think I'm a jerk at all, I'm just not in a rush.

Got ya there Pat. That's the main reason I worked at Freddies. I had job offers in Anchorage, but that drive sucks, mainly due to the other aholes on the road, not the distance, I drive further to work now.

I don't blame you one bit. I would not have driven it in the winter..my husband did. The roads are bad enough then you have the complete idiots...putting makeup on...texting...cell phones...reading...just not paying attention...and jerks who think they're invincible. I am so glad we don't have to travel it anymore except for the occasional appointment and then I try to get it on off hours. Even though you drive further to work now I'm sure you don't have the crazies to contend with.

My apologies, I was having a bad day on the day I wrote that.

Mea culpa.
