Snowbird Sighting of the Day

While traveling south on I-95 about five miles north of Lumberton, NC we passed a single slide, approximately 27 feet in length, 5er with an enclosed 5x8 or 6x10 foot enclosed trailer attached to the 5er bumper being pulled by a Chevy 1500 truck. The combination had Ontario tags and was rolling along at about 70mph.

Sounds like an accident looking for a place to happen

"Been pullin' that set up with the 1500 for years, never had a problem."

Hooker ... you're probably closer to the truth than you could hope to imagine.

Just noticed they had a Ontario gentleman in Georgia for an illegal lane change and leaving the scene of an accident where a man was killed. Sometimes it's better to be safe than in a hurry or trying to take all your stuff.

I once saw an older car with one of those old chain on trailer bumper hitches that were designed for pulling light boats, pulling a car hauler with a car on it. I kid you not, that bumper was moving in and out over an inch each time they hit an expansion joint. I was torn between slowing down and waiting for the catastrophe or speeding up to avoid it. I ended up speeding up and making sure he stayed well behind me. I always wondered if he ever made it or not.

I've had similar things happened and always opted for going faster than I want to rather than trying to avoid whatever happened and how much of the road it blocked.
