I - 40 Eastbound
The last 25-40 miles of I-40 Eastbound rolling into Needles really sucks. The pavement is a mess, pot holes, missing chunks of blacktop, it is as bad or worse than any secondary road I traveled in Mexico and far worse than even the 2 lane cuotas and far more traffice, esp. big trucks.
I did not have to ride any freeways to get to Mexico, the first Autopista was in great shape. I have to ride freeways to get from LA to Colorado. The morning before I left the traffic reporter said that a portion of the I-10 on the East side of LA had been closed to allow a life flight helicopter to land to pick up a downed motorcyclist.... I hope he made it.
On I go...the roads at home just have cows, deer and elk... and the occasional icy patch. It was 23 there this morning and I got a call that my furnace had quit working. Time to get home and take care of business.
