HOW DO YOU REACT TO BEING STUCK

BEHIND SLOW-MOVING TRUCKS?

I read the May 29, 2915 (Friday), WordPress photo prompt On the Way just as my husband Monte and I were traveling to Pittsburgh for the ColorVibe 5K run/walk (a later article). The prompt read: In-between moments can be just as memorable as grand finales. This week, share a photo you took on the way to something else.

While a passenger I like to take photos out the car windows as we travel 50-70 miles per hour. I did the usual on our way to Pittsburgh.

The first part of our Friday travel went really slow—we were caught behind trucks slowed by driving up hills or following speed limits down hills. Thus, the subject of my photos is trucks that drastically slowed Monte’s driving.

Yes, he was irritated—as I know many other drivers are who are “stuck” behind trucks on back country roads.

WHAT DO YOU DO WHEN TRUCKS DRASTICALLY SLOW YOU ON YOUR ROAD TRIP?

At a stop sign a truck will be going our way---in front of us...

It turns off our road after we've followed it a ways---this is the last large truck we had to follow.

    It depends is I am late or expected for an appointment. It depends if I am the driver or able to relax and look out the windows as a passenger. It depends on what kind of a mood I’m in. I rarely blow the horn, but may tap the steering wheel with my fingers and turn up the radio.
