After years of driving the highways across this country, in moving from one state to another, traveling on business, or promoting my books, I have learned a few things about the road:
Never impatiently pass or cut off another car near your home town - you never know when they will follow you into your subdivision because they are one of your neighbors!
Always get a good running start when heading for a big hill.
Never fully trust MapQuest.
If you get bored, count flattened fauna - I always find roadkill amusing!
Never "pig" a trucker.
If you travel a lot, start noticing how many states use the roadside for "orange barrel storage".
Never lead the pack - make sure there is someone in front of you that is traveling faster.
Jello is difficult to eat while you are driving.
And my favorite-
Never use the wiper fluid while your windows are down!
