umm, yeah, I wouldn't want my head to be in that lady's car when that happens.

It's Pittsburgh. There are parts stuck in the 70s and 80s.

About 15 miles East of the city actually. Pittsburgh has an "h" on the end : )

Shitty-ish area actually. Railroads tracks on the left, people living behind those, fast food on the right to kill them all.

That's a tight move too.

Personally my all time favorite was someone driving with a mattress on the top of their SUV doing about 60mph. The thing was almost standing up straight and I'm sure minutes from lifting off and causing a huge accident.

Where are the cops when you need them?

Gotta say I drove through there today. So it could have been me with a tree out the back. It was definitely Alabama between York and Pittsburgh, though. I could have spit chew out the wind'er to complete the picture.

Nearly 80 degrees with Michelin Alpins on the car. I think I left black marks on the highway through most of the mountain passes.

I'll be out on 76 tomorrow racing back to Allentown in the evening. Hope the Alpins make it back without wearing down to the cords.

Hahahahaha...

There are some really nice areas of 76. Actually, between Pittsburgh and Bedford/Latrobe is almost all 3 lanes of solid road. Just gotta watch out for the coppers ; )

I'm liking the all seasons on the X5 as my "winters" because I don't feel bad beating on them until I get my summers on...
