Driving behind a semi on the turnpike earlier today when small pieces of debris were getting thrown back at my car. I realized they were coming from underneath the trailer and they started to get bigger and became more frequent. Decided not to f around and pass the damn thing, as we were next to it we heard a loud bang. The semi sort of swerved a little and started breaking hard. In my rear view I saw large chunks of tire flying out the back of the trailer. I had the wife and both kids in tow, that could have been really really bad.

Also, f the turnpike, used to be much better now just as clogged up with shitty drivers as 95. And the redesigned rest areas are fng awful.

Flying tire pieces are scary. Had to dodge one a few years ago.

Thanks, I told my wife that I got a bad feeling about this and I need to pass. She gave me that holy shit look when it happened and I probably coulda got a BJ right there if the kids weren’t in the car :lol:

If I've learned anything from final destination it's that you still need to be on the lookout for buses and slippery tubs.

Sorry, my trucker was getting a breaking news recruiting tip from Reb, something about Anthony Richardson would recommit to UF, he should have been paying better attention, that load of boner juice he was delivering to PG is quite expensive.

They are built with one entrance and one big parking lot instead of north and south lots. It forces a lot of traffic to pass in front of the main entrance. It’s a real cluster f.

I wish they would have left one of the plazas in the old-school setup. Those buildings were kind of cool.
