The Long Trip Home

Boy howdy, from Tundra Land to the Commonwealth of Kentucky is one long, dull trip. Which means I am always looking for something to pique my interest. On the stretch across western NY I keep my eyes open for red tail hawks, deer, and Canada geese. At the junction of Rtes. 86 and 90 I get my first glimpse of Lake Erie.

Pretty stuff but you have to be a nature lover to get excited about it. No, it is the unusual sights that really draw my attention.

Like this MedCorp ambulance. I was doing 68 mph (Ohio is very sensitive about their speed limit) and the ambulance blew past me. No lights or sirens, just in a hurry to get somewhere.

Once it passed me, it really drew my interest.

It was the first time in my life I had seen an ambulance barreling down the highway with the back door open. Either they did not notice or they were serious fresh air fiends.

The good news is the stretcher appeared to be empty. We can only hope that's the way they started their trip!

Too funny! Is this why God invented ambulance chasers? Thanks for photo of Lake Erie... never have seen it!

Can you imagine driving behind that and having a stretcher with a body roll out in front of you? Holy hell!
