THE WEEKENDER-DRIVE

DRIVING & DRIVEN

   As another weekend of winter blasts much of the US, these snaps from the drive and street of our Indiana home, in a winter past, are enough to bring back bad memories and trigger my sympathy to those of you who must endure.
     Picturesque though winter may be, driving was always a royal pain. Notice that ice where the tire treads are?
  So we continue our exploration of California, but select trips in a time of the year to avoid snow. Maybe some year we'll venture into the Sierra during ski season. Maybe.
  Our Weekender video prompts a question this week. How would you like to drive this bridge?" Enjoy.
    Hats off to the Norwegian engineers and road builders.  See you down the trail.

  1. The maintenance on a bridge like this, so exposed to the elements, must be incredible. I don't know if my tendency would be to drive slowly or as quickly as possible.

  2. There is a section of 1A on the short coastline of New Hampshire where I got buckets of saltwater splashed into my MGB as a wave broke over the road. Nice wake up call on a cool fall afternoon.
