Instead of not posting my nonsense, I tagged the car ride pics from the ride Marie and I took Friday and Saturday. Look at the bottom of the footer, it says "9/12 drive." Click on that and only the trip pics will come up. That way those of you not interested in boobs, cars, atheism and such can still enjoy the travel pics. For the rest of you, scroll away!
We drive for about a minute and notice the Amtrack train stopped on the tracks. Then we see where all the responding units are going. The train had clipped the front end of a tractor trailer and crushed the tractor. The hood was across the roadway I'd say 50 feet. The cab didn't look crushed and I didn't see a body in the cab. I did get out the movie camera and run film when I drove by, but I wasn't going to pull over and take pics. That may be a stunner to some of you, but I wouldn't like it if someone I knew was killed in a gruesome accident and tourists got out to take pics.
The shirt I'm wearing is a 3XLT. And it fits quite nicely and covers up my fat belly That's why I'm donating all of my clothes that don't fit as nice as this polo shirt does.
On the way home we did stop and run film in San Juan Bautista. But you've seen the stills a couple of months ago and I didn't retake any.
So, Marie and I drove almost 600 miles in our overnight trip. We both had a good time.
Marie and I drove for a while on SH-58 and we turned on the road to Pozo. There's a KOA campground out that way and I wanted to take a look. After that we got on US-101 and started to head home. I recalled another RV park in Paso Robles that I wanted to look at, so I looked it up on the GPS and we went to Wine Country RV Park. This was a top tier place and they have an adults only part of the park. Actually, the sounds of families playing and kids running around doesn't really bother me. But when I turn into an grumpy old man this place will be good to remember.
Pressing on 101, we stopped in the hamlet of Bradley, just off the freeway. Founded in 1942 and named after General Omar Bradley, there really isn't much here.
I jumped out of the Beetle and got the movie and still cameras out and managed to run some film and take these stills. This was pretty cool and you just don't see this everyday.
There was a small line of cars behind this mess, I'd hate to be in that line going about 20 miles an hour for the 65 miles from US-101.
