Ya never know

Close call today, tooling down a sweet two lane doing a mellow 60 and a i come around a bend and there is a car in my lane. I start slowing down and he is just staying in my lane. I'm almost stopped and he his still coming in my lane. At the last minite I crossed into his lane and he continuied right on by. I chased after him and he had pulled off the road.

Long story short, he was a visitor from a country that drove on the left and he had a memory lapse and was driving like he did back home. He appologised 10 differeant ways.

The road was narrow with a narrow birm and deep ditches on both sides.

Oof! ya never do know, do ya? Thought you were gonna say some old codger had stroked out behind the wheel or something.

Just goes to show you can't be too careful or ever assume you're coming around a clear corner...
