Highway from Hell

Let me just say up front, I hate Interstate 95. It runs north and south, like the spine of the east coast, with a touch of scoliosis where it angles down from Baltimore and then goes around Washington, DC. When I drive the 120 miles to see my mother in Richmond, about 80+ miles of it is on I95.

I hate that road! There are too many huge monster trucks that you pass on the up-hill stretches only to look in your rear-view mirror and see the same damn truck bearing down on you on the downhill. Too many cars, not enough road, and there's always at least one fender bender by the side of the road that everyone slows down to look at.

Argh!
