Traveling on the Interstates was different, but the practice of using headlights to "let" others over was common. So was the acknowledgement.
|Always the right thing to do|
I've driven campers and towed different trailers with a pickup or SUV for many years, and continued the mutual language of courtesy lights on the road. I flashed to let the passing truck over, and they did the little "blip" of thank you. 90% of the time.
Until I started driving the motorhome. I still blink to let them over. No acknowledgement. Seriously. Less than 10% of truckers give the return blink of the lights. In four states, same thing. I even checked to be sure my lights work.
|Aren't we still pals?|
What is up with the lack of trucker love? Do they hate all motorhomes? Is there some treaty that was broken? Is there a new signal and I missed the memo? What????
On Day Four of the photo challenge I invite Lisa of Metamorphosis Road to join the fun :-).
Galeta Meadows outdoor sculptures in Borrego Springs is a favorite place of many fellow travelers. The dinosaurs are some of our favorites, and I love this big claw.
