Driving on unfamiliar roads can be scary at the best of times, but when you add rain, and pitch blackness and speeds of up to 100 kilometres into the mix well then you are just in for a hell of a scary ride.
Funny how the drive up during the day never seems quite as bad. Is it age that makes night driving more harrowing? or could it be the idiots who are in such a rush to get to their destination that will tailgate so closely behind you, that you fear if you have to brake for some reason that they will smash right into your car?
I think things do get more scary the older one gets. You appreciate how much you have to lose now, where as when you were young you had no idea, no fear, and no worries. I much preferred it back then, I probably would have been one of those people in a hurry to get to where ever it is they are going.
Seriously though we are literally in the middle of nowhere, where are these people hurrying to get too? Have they never heard of the saying ‘ make time to smell the roses’ ?
Today the sun is shining again and the light of day makes everything appealing once more. It’s time to hit the road and see just where it will take us.
