It's a little early for notifications to go out for it. I would expect it to happen unless there's compelling information to suggest it wouldn't otherwise.

Wow, Vizzy's even more anxious than I am! I think Feb/Mar time is when the rumblings started, much later these past few years...

Should be a happening deal though. =D

I have got to get out there. It doesn't work with my Itinerary schedule, but what if I said "Road Trip!" and just do a dedicated to/fro Maupin, then zipped back to Atlanta? I would need two real Itinerary appointments along the way to pay for it . . .

Really? I'd of imagined that you've tired of them being on your bumper in the slow lane as your "blazing" down the interstate at 62 mph.

Don't get me wrong . . . the drivers can be annoying. But the trucks are Americana, and when I am camping way up off the Interstate on a desert hot night, you cannot even hear them, but you see the dementedly lit-up countless amber parking lights along the perimeters and it is beautiful.

I totally agree with the "Americana" analogy and that truck being hideous. A great movie that speaks to that trucker/Americana theme is the original Smoky and the Bandit.

I think we all need to recognize that in the next 20 years, the vast majority of semi's will probably be driverless and, and, there will be lots less accidents due to that. I'm not sure I'll be here to see it but it's reality for sure.

And who will I be able to yell at when it does happen?

"Hey! You just side-swiped my car!"
"We're sorry, due to unexpected call volume, your call cannot be answered at this time."

Love the optimism that you'll be around to see it despite the cigs, carb cleaner ingestion via lungs/skin, diet cokes and the other bad health decisions many of us have made in our lives! :blackeye:
