O I C. (now...)
I'm on the dis-orient express. DOH!
Mongo, You're in the Mojave Desert?
And traveled thru AZ?
For some reason I thought Momgoose came from Mississippi.
Anyway, yes it's like another planet here.

I was born in Mississippi, reared in Mississippi, Alabama, and Florida until I was 11. Family moved to California when I was 11, and I've been here since with the exception of 3 years military.

I drove commercial for about 3.5 years, and that trip, made a delivery in Albuquerque. Picked up a Walmart load about an hour south of Albuquerque and took US 60 from I-25 to where it meets up with 260 in Arizona, then 87 down into Scottsdale. The mountains in your part were gorgeous, and then on 87, driving through the arroyos and pipe organ cacti was simply amazing. I've also made a few pickups off of 277 in the boondocks west of Snowflake. If I remember, it was a paper mill, but I'm not really sure.

No, no, no, lol. Mississippi was when I was a kid. That was some 50 or so years ago. Now I'm in the Mojave Desert, about an hour north of downtown Los Angeles, and all the Ski-idjits (ski idiots) from the coastal side of the mountains flock to Mammoth Lakes ski resorts, and it looks like a caravan of non-stop skis on top of cars, or ski mobiles in tow, or both. It's a nightmare for those of us that have to drive in that garbage, just to get home in the evening:banghead:
I've always felt great empathy for anyone driving a commercial vehicle.
Long haul drivers seem the most patient.
Local drivers, not so patient but I don't hold that against them. I don't commute anymore but I know what it's like to be in an interstate parking lot ...
