tree on road....
I get off work at midnight, and when I was heading home tonight I was going onto the highway at Mt. Lehman going east....
Just after the flat part where is starts to slope down ( the shoulder check part)... I am looking over my shoulder for the merge... but caught something out of the corner of my right eye...
really quick glance back at it.. HOLY SHIT! It was a evergreen tree ( Large X-mas tree) laying in the raod blocking my way!
I was doing about 90 clicks.. just about ready to merge...
Harsh bank to the left...
Needless to say my heart was in my throat. Friggin thing was about 6-7 feet across and about 3 1/2 feet tall.
This wasnt a tree that had fallen over... it was crap from someones truck that fell out.
Just wanted to remind everyone to keep their eyes open. weird things in bad places...
glad you're okay and made it outta there without a scratch, coulda been ugly!
Good periferal vision. My friend hit an x-mas tree in his Chevy stepside one time amd it ripped the entire back fender off of the truck. Very scary.
