Hey Del, I hate Prius's too .... never like them , hate them now ... Undecided

I'm on my way to work , minding my own beeswax..... on the Florida turnpike.

ahead is a Prius struggling to pass a semi trailer in the right lane ...and ahead of him another Semi and behind him (Prius) a Jeep Patriot or something.
So a semi in front, semi on his side , Jeep....and along comes me about 100 feet behind the Jeep and closing...
all of sudden it gets real @ 65 MPH....
Semi in front shreds a tire, Prius stands on the brakes , as the tire carcass goes under him.... smacks the Jeep, which at this time
(to Close) is hauling down on the binders ...blue smoke billowing  as the Offending Semi Trailer disappears into the distance.

Jeep hits Prius and they pirouette into a wad , and I have time "100 feet" worth to  react and swerve back to the Right lane
and miss them >...X'cept there is another you guessed it Toyota " not a Prius though,  Corolla I think
in my blind spot... Note: here,  I was re-acting to missing a rear-ender in Mila-seconds
and I TAG mind you "tap" the Corolla.

Worst thing is I got the fault charge in that one....Jr. Highway patrol kid  Roll Eyes said "it was avoidable..."
yeah ! I said  "if I had not gone to work today"  Undecided

I said  "I avoided that melee over there "  and the Corolla Driver was cool and told the JR ranger , it wasn't my fault  too !
Junior Cop still charged me ....  

anyway my X over and the Corolla are both drivable,  minor ( though prolly costly) dents & his left headlight.
and I smacked my right wrist hard !  ...sore enough ,requiring X ray's @ my Doc ....sore as hell and dislocated she said not fractured ....
so I wear a wrist brace and will have my State Farm Ins. fix the X over.... Florida is a no fault state , so The Corolla driver also State Farm Ins. will get his head light fixed and his co pay covered .
Course my premium will likely go up ....

FYI ,  other State Troopers handled the Melee, I didn't go over there as they were out and conversing  , and I'd have had to cross the road  with traffic still whizzing by...  
 ( funny if you're just standing there it seems fast, but if you are in the jam with the rubber neckers it excruciating show ! )
I betting the Jeep driver was charged  Undecided
 
Fricking Prius  Smiley   actually it was the Semi , whom drove off into the distance prolly unaware ... Roll Eyes

Any vehicle that has to struggle to pass a semi should just stay in the right lane. I've been -close- to a couple of semi blowouts, but never right in the "blast zone". Was diving cars both times. When I have to pass a truck on the motorcycle, I don't hang out there. I hang back a safe distance, and when it's clear to pass the truck, PASS THE TRUCK! Never close to those rear trailer tires more than a second or so.

I'd fight the ticket, myself, tell the judge if you were stupid you might have killed someone, make them call the Toyo guy in to testify.   Make Jr Trooper come to court and explain it.

I had the tread come off a company mini-van's front passenger tire. Took out the side mirror.  Shocked

I ended up changing the EGR valve on the new-to-me suburban 'cuz it won't idle. It still is running rough but it does idle.

Coffee and tea are ready!

Fall made its presence known Thursday with a high of only 59 (20 degrees cooler that the day before) still working our way back to a high of about 80 today.

Finished off the September festivities yesterday with a trip down to the Genoa Candy Dance.  The oldest settlement in Nevada more than doubles its population during this two day event.

This year we managed to make it to the Rib cook-off, balloon races, air races, camel races and Candy Dance.  Skipped Street Vibrations as I’m not really into motorcycles.  There were herds of the critters all over the streets and freeways.  It finishes up today, and then we should get back to normal until Halloween, when Nevada celebrates becoming a state.

Good morning all.

Major, I imagine Mr. NSAID is probably a friend right now?  Hope that all works out well.

Slim, as much as it stinks to be in your car situation, just know that You're not alone on that one,  Undecided  We found what we thought was the problem on the Explorer, so we bought the part and installed it and it fired right up.  But then, when My mom and I were going across town to pick up a friend to go hunting (which was planned in my truck), the car was being weird.  Felt like riding with someone new to a manual.  The car is an automatic.  Huh  We limped it home and told my dad.  He drove it up a fairly steep hill to see if he could recreate the problem and got more than he bargained for.  At the top, it died.  It hasn't started since.  
We think it's a wiring thing, which complicated matters because this is a 2010.  The whole thing is filled with a jumbled pasta of wires and computers. Shocked

In other news, I've got whatever my mom had a couple days ago.  Just general nasty feeling. Lips Sealed

Hope it gets to feeling better, Major.  And that's what the computer keeps telling us.  Cylinders 2,3 and 6 are missing.  The distributor is brand new, though.  As in, we replaced it just before it died the second time.  Sad  So now we think that it might be the wiring coming in.  Mixed feelings on that one.   Kind of like watching HRC fall off a cliff holding your really nice new rifle, you want to laugh and clap, but also cry.

On the subject of rifles, I get my new Ruger American next Thursday, I think.   My 10 day wait is up on Saturday, but my mom will have my truck in the city, so I'll be on foot.  And unfortunately, we can't open carry long guns in CA. So I have to wait until Thursday. Undecided  My scope should come in the mail tomorrow, though, so I'm going to go down there and lap/mount it.

Good Morning all.

50 degrees as I sit here sipping hot coffee and avoiding dog tongues.   Roll Eyes

Had a bit of an interesting time the past couple days.  Seems a mentally unstable guy murdered someone in the next county over with a steak knife, stole a handgun and fled to my town.  Since I heard the report over the radio, I've been walking around the house/yard with a Shield and Hydra-Shoks.  They had reports from multiple people of a guy fitting the description just down the street from me, but there weren't any deputies in the area, so nobody knows if it was him or not. Shocked

TK, check all the basics on that Explorer. I recall paying a shop to diagnose and repair a miss on a Taurus, Problem: Random misfire. Their fix: A new coil pack. Couple days later, miss returned. I checked it out myself. Found, in an out of sight part of the engine compartment, a couple plug wires burned half through. I guess when they installed the new coil pack, they disturbed the wires enough that they weren't shorting out on anything(for a day or two). For that and other similar reasons, I found a new shop.....
