Don't monkey around with safety.

Vacations are relaxing but by being on the road for hours at a time coming and going I really got an appreciation for driving safety.A friend of mine sent me this video and it shows that how in an instant our lives can be irrevocably changed. Many Pentaxians love the open road so just be careful and be aware of your surroundings..--charliezap

The video is really intense but if it makes one person think about their driving habits and saves a life or two it was worth posting.Be safe.--charliezap

Yikes, that vehicle virtually exploded into dust! I had an experience on an ice covered highway where I slid back and forth twice into the oncoming lanes. Luckily no one was coming the other way. This brought that scary moment back, thanks a lot dude LOL!
At least your photo wasn't scary LOL

If something like the the video enhances your awareness maybe it is worthwhile to see.It's made me more cautious on the road.--charliezap

It is good to be back home Bob.Today I hope to put the screens in all the windows--take a macro shot or two of some flowers--pull some weeds and just putter around at my leisure.--charliezap
