Falling Leaves

It only took me a few seconds last week to remind myself that a layer of falling leaves between the tire and road surface is a recipe for disaster. Fortunately I was able to recover.

Watch those dark corners with overhanging trees!

Leaves, loose gravel, and around here mud or livestock poop on the road. Any of it gets wet and there's traction trouble up ahead.

Falling Leaves

Ice and snow are a bitch too. The 10 inches at the end of my drive sent me sideways yesterday.

Who would've thought that snow and ice are slick?

Be sure and watch out for a diesel spill ! If the road ahead appears wet when it hasn't been raining , slow down cause if its diesel fuel and you get some on your tires your GONNA go down ! Diesel fuel & rubber = slippery owl shit !
