Williams AZ Loves Friday November 28th 2019. Took 4 hours to get from Winslow to Williams after ADOT reopened I40. They closed it again about 4PM because of a wreck at mm 113.

Saturday morning trying to leave Williams AZ Loves. What a mess that was! I40 was still a mess because of wrecks. Took Route 66 from mm 123 (Seligman AZ) to Kingman. First 20 or so miles were a little sketchy but opened up to dry pavement all the way.

Do you guys pull these from drive cams? Im considering one as a Christmas gift to myself. Also where do you mount them and if up high on the windshield how do you get power to them. Also is it easy to pull images off them?

I passed this one earlier in Missouri, heading north towards Iowa.

Thought I'd made a wrong turn somewhere?

You were heading North on US 61 and didn't look me up while you were near St. Louis?

I know! Some day when I'm stopped in East St. Louis, I'm going to give you a shout, Rob.

Had this one timed down to the minute from West Memphis, AR to Keokuk, IA for the delivery this morning.

All that went out the window, once the preplanned load I was to have next got canceled on me. Plans always change.
