STORIES FROM THE ROAD


JUN 16, 1996

CLOSE CALL

I was having a good ride heading south on US 68. This was dispite the fact that the highway was in really poor shape with a lot of patches. There was no real shoulder to ride along and there was a lot of truck traffic.

About a couple of miles south of Traer, IA, I almost had a close call with a truck. I almost got brushed by a truck. The truck passed me with just inches to spare. Right after it happened, the driver of the truck pulled over.

I thought that he was going to see if I was okay but all he did was chew me out for almost causing an accident. In my mind, I almost heard him say that I wasn't really allowed to be on the same road as he was. All he had to do to prevent what had happened was to slow down a bit for the northbound traffic to go by and then he could have passed me.
