An icy drive

I was a trucker. A few years back I was drivin up a icy hill in the middle of winter when another semi coming down the hill started to jackknife. His trailer swung out sideways blocking the entire road and headed straight towards me!! The whole time all i could think of was this is it. Thank god no one was hurt. Must have angels on my side or something. We all walked away and I learned a lesson to never under estimate mother nature when your drivin.

That's why experience is EVERYTHING in a job.

Oh man that is terrifying. I would hate to drive in those kinds of conditions, but what can you do right? Ever heard of those ice road truckers?

Luckily no one was injured. Most people have no clue how much skill it takes to drive a truck, and think they can "just hop behind the wheel", and go. I give much respect the men and women who do this job, because I know I couldn't.

You are so right about that, but depending on you age and experience you can talk yourself into thinking that you can do it! Common sense can be hard to come by at times. Glad that you made it out of that situation and like all of life's experiences we learn from it, or at least we should.

Wow, that is scary Gregory! I think in that situation you have done everything you could to be safe. It's hard when things are out of our control. Glad it all worked out and everyone was safe!
