Hit it she goes boom
Took my first super slab run of the season, also got my first pucker moment of the season. I think I had it handled as best as possible, but I'd like your opinion. I was running a two laner, heading into a construction zone so the left lane was going to disappear. Dropping my speed keeping my cushion. As always, watching the mirrors. I had this 18 wheeler, coming up way too fast.. I know why he was doing it.. azzhat cagers waiting for the last minute to move over. But it didn't make the situation any safer. I rolled up on the throttle, closed my cushion and kept my eyes peeled on my main escape route, the shoulder is paved and in good shape. But if a cage couldn't stop and did the same thing that would be closed, secondary route was the cones, for the other lane, but I didn't know how far up the construction started. I gotta tell ya, having an 18 wheeler up your rear with no place to go is not a happy place to be.. luckily when we were down to one lane, he backed off. Bad happens fast. Any thoughts?
