Some Scary Stuff

You see all kinds of ridiculous stuff when you’re on the highway for days at a time. Some of it interesting…

and some of it downright spooky. See for yourself…

Not a big fan of tunnels that go through mountains…or under rivers…or at all actually. I’m perfectly happy to go around the darn things. So add to the general creepiness a Prestone jug yellow hue and you’ve got a real eerie driving tube.  Get out–get out–get out.

Now this could be an attempt to pass going very, very badly…but don’t be afraid. It’s not. This is actually a Semi towing another Semi…backwards. Just a tad startling to look up from a good book and see a this staring you in the face.

Seriously?! Would you build your brand new hotel at the base of not one, but TWO huge precariously teetering boulders? What were they thinking?!

I like pancakes, but not enough to want to be one. wow.

You can’t really tell from here–but this is crawling tube at a roadside McDonald’s is reeeally high…like a million feet up. Well, to Grammy anyway. I’m pretty sure this is the farthest that little Lilly has every been from home…alone.

My new favorite book series and best road trip pal. We were slow to get started with them–but everyone but the babies is neck deep in the series now. Very, very scary and thrilling at the same time. It’s the first book I’ve ever read that actually makes me jump.

Here’s the best one of all. So your driving along…minding your own business…when you just happen to look over at the vehicle to your right. Yeeeah. I’m sorry–is that a freaking  missile right next to us?! Like the kind they blow up small countries with?

I’m patriotic and all that, but come on. They just drive these suckers down the street?! Not sure whether to speed way up or slow way down or make a sharp left and bolt to Alaska. We took off like…well, like a minivan being chased by a missile, that’s what. We’d have had a great story for the policeman giving us a ticket.

“Well you see officer…there was this missile…”


Just for that…

we’re coming home!

  1. I am pretty sure the deadly poison that goes in the missiles wasn’t in there. You were safe! That semi picture though would make my heart go into my stomach!

  2. Love it! Well, all except the missile, I really don’t like those. It reminds me of an old quote, “It’ll be a great day when the schools have all the money they need and the airforce has to hold a bakesale to buy a missile”! Yep, hope you had a great time on your trip! I have always wanted to go see the faces on the mountain.

  3. We have a tunnel in Michigan that goes under (or in) the Detroit River. It takes you from Detroit to Windsor Ontario. I hate the tunnel, but feel it is safer than the bridge. I don’t know, maybe I’m wrong. But I agree, tunnels suck.
