BT, is that the Eisenhower Tunnel? If so, I remember goin' west to Provo, Utah, and climbin' that mountain. I pulled over at the top to clean my wipers off, (they were as big as two ball bats with snow and ice). I walked around the rig and kicked all the tires, and when I climbed back up into the cab, I was pantin'! Don't remember what the elevation was, but the air was pretty darned thin.

Liberalism always generates the exact opposite of its stated intent.

Emitch, I don't know if that particular tunnel was the Eisenhower..... I had my eyes closed.

But yeah we did pass through the Eisenhower and I remember seeing a sign on top of one of the summits saying 11000 feet.

We topped that big hill at 31 MPH and our Mopar pickem up truck with a 6.4 Hemi screwed to a 6 speed slush box turning 4:10 differentials was a singing'.

Ain't a Mopar fan alive that wouldn't say "twas music to my ears".

Cat scales say the GVW is 22,357.

Rumor has it, the snow accumulation on the mountains is the most in many years. Snow was plowed high leaving no shoulder to pull over. Even the "chain up" areas were limited in space.

Lookin forward to heading west, across the top, this coming fall and see "Donners Pass" on our way to the 'big woods'.

Did I mention, the I-70 through Indiana really sucks. Both in condition AND traffic. Gasoline prices are also the highest we paid our entire trip ('xcept 'round the tourist traps like the entrance to the Grand Canyon) Heck, even the KOAs are $20.00 higher per night.

Should rename Indiana "The Hosing" state. πŸ˜’

Gonna try and hit southern Buckeye for a few nights stay and let the stupid cold weather go by before headin muup north. Besides, none of the stupid RV parks muup north open till April 1st. Sissy's. πŸ˜›

But fear not for I bring home, nothing but 🌞sunshine🌞.


Hey Big Tuna, save some of them PI perch for me.

Couple years ago on our trip back from trout fishing in Colorado, I remembered thinking that Indiana and Ohio must be in a competition to see which state could do a worse job of taking care of 70 between Indianapolis and Columbus.  Tried to find a cheap motel east of Indy the week leading up to the Brickyard 400 late at night.  Remember well the feeling of being hosed on that one.

Laying over a few nights just west of Columbus Ohio allowing this stupid cold front to pass, before heading muup home.

Watching a local news program out of the "Miami Valley" when the anchor turns to a story of two visitors dieing at the "Grand Canyon". One of the dead was found at the "Grand Canyon Village" area which is where we stayed and the other fatality slipped and fell 1000 feet to their death while doing pictures from the rim of the canyon.

A later report by the same network attributed falling deaths at the Canyon to "Selfie Sticks".

If yinz ask me, I think the deaths are caused by pure stupidity.

Anyways, for yinz enjoyment (or sumpthin to b!tch about), a few more "it didnt happen if there ain't no pics, pics.

No ya sillys, not of the deaths at the canyon!!!

Somewhere in the Rocky Mountains.

If it works, then why after hundreds of thousands of years, people are still doing extremely stupid things?

I wonder how many people are killed each year from using a cell phone?
 
There are many studies out there concluding that for the last 45 years, people have been getting dumber.

Because we put protections in place that circumvent the thinning of the herd process that permit stupidity to thrive.

Chapter 5 vs 5 say "the meek shall inherit the earth".

BUT WAIT..... it is also sayed " meekness doesn't mean weakness, but rather a different characteristic altogether".

The Continuing Saga of BTDT by... BTDT.

WE DID IT WE DID IT....., nooo not that yinz silly's.

We found "Home Sweet Home".

Pending the home inspection thingy of course aaaaaand the new neighbors don't get an emergency declaration changing zoning or chartering a HOA or anythingy like that or sumpthin.πŸ˜πŸ˜›πŸ˜Š

Speaking of the new neighbors.... sucks to be them.πŸ˜„πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜³

Anyways the place just popped onto the market so we offered, they accepted, an inspector will inspect it and we're movin...... then it's "On The Road Again" with more stories and more "it didn't happen if there ain't no pics" pics which means..... it sucks to be you guys.

Hope all yinz all had a wonderfull & Happy Easter.🐰
