    of the trucker. . .not as rare as you'd think. I never met one coming up or down, but I have heard from others how they got the mess scared out of 'em when encountering such beats. But the road is open to any and all who can negotiate. So far as I know, there's never been an 18-wheeler going over the side, or pushing others in such a direction, though I am pretty sure folks stop when the trucks pass and pray to the saints the debris in the dust doesn't launch small pebbles that are bound to break a car's windows. Ergo, never follow too close; given those big rigs a long leadway, and understand coming down that way (from Natural Bridges) also cuts off mileage, though it's sure as hell hard on the brakes. Of course, those dudes use the Jake break all the way down. Rather noisy, that. Great video FishOutofWater sent. That's a keeper. I'm ready for someone sending me one while driving in a monsoon! Or snowstorm!

    Treat the world (yourself, and others) as part of a living organism. Everyone and everything will benefit.
