Yeah, the last several years I've found that my eyesight no longer handles the oncoming car lights very well....I assume it is a combination of my eyes getting old :lol: and the fact that car lights are much brighter these days from the new types of headlights....it's really a bitch when the road is wet...

I have a problem with the glare from headlights & streetlights, etc. More of a problem on wet roads in the rain. My eyes water instead of getting dry. Doctor told me it was from fatigue. Kinda sucks, because I make my living on the road.

I would have thought you guys would avoid topics that show your age. :D

I have the same problem. When driving on wet, unfamiliar roads at night I can be downright dangerous.

I have trouble driving at night, cause the roads are a sheet of ice, other then that not really, just hard to concentrate and watch out for cops at the same time.

Didn't realise Utah was so cold! I'd love to go birdwatching near where you live...

Not as cold as Canada. This is the time of year most of us Canadians leave our igloos and seek out sturdier shelters.

When I moved from Arizona to South Dakota the worst stretch of road (for snow and ice) that I drove on was the I-80 between Provo and Salt Lake City.

Yeah I-80 that runs along the mountain is horrid, black ice, 8 ft snow drifts, the whole sha-bang, fucking hell on wheels, the other night their was someone who spun off and hit the concrete barrier, literally every 3 miles or so, it was absolutely unbelievable, I have never saw anything like it, and of course the second theres even a drop of moisture falling from the sky, it's like people go into fucking idiot mode, and become, well, fucking idiots!

:lol: I was going to say my parents don't like driving at night. ;)

 

The only issue I have had in the past (on only one or two occasions) is when the rain is so heavy your windscreen wipers can't keep up and once I literally had to pull over because I couldn't see anything anymore for this tirade of rain. Otherwise, I am really, really old, but probably not this old yet. I visit my brothers up the coast (3 and 4 hour trips) reasonably regularly and do all my travelling there and back at night so maybe I've become an owl of sorts?

I don't usually mind the cold too much, but it was -6 this morning. I didn't enjoy walking down to the coach stop an awful lot.

BTW, on the subject of the thread, does anyone recognise this?:

 

Can I confess something? I tell you this as an artist, I think you'll understand. Sometimes when I'm driving... on the road at night... I see two headlights coming toward me. Fast. I have this sudden impulse to turn the wheel quickly, head-on into the oncoming car. I can anticipate the explosion. The sound of shattering glass. The... flames rising out of the flowing gasoline.

I thought I did. Google'd it. Nope. But maybe I've heard this bit somewhere.

No idea who said it, but I have had a buddy of mine tell me in almost the same words used above that he has had urges like that. Needless to say I really hate riding with him when he drives now.

Quote from 'Annie Hall'. One of Christopher Walken's first roles. As the quote suggests, his character is a bit ... unhinged. A real sign of things to come!

 

Great scene:

Looks awesome. In fact, reminds me a tiny bit of the view from my apartment when I was working in Sarajevo a few years ago. Your picture looks nicer (Sarajevo was great though, contrary to popular belief).

    • ....If we have something negative to say we will surely let it fly
    • Still waiting for the  2 inch dick Chinese to be held responsible for giving the world the plague.POS Biden Admin and their pussy diplomatic boycott - forget the entire d@mn thing.Send NO athletes.
    • Unless your beathing and lungs are so fucked up you have to be put on a ventilator.  So sorry I inconvenienced hospital staff. 
    • The morons who go to the hospital are just as ridiculous as the people who rail on them for not being vaxed, maybe it's Darwin's theory and who are we to interfere? I begrudgingly went to the hospital, they told me I had Covid, to come to the hospital, I went in they checked my kidney function, gave me some strips to pee on every 7 days, if the strip turned red then to come straight in, then I went home, I think that's pretty common sense, when you make the decision to not get vaxed, don't you kind of assume the risk if it's real? they cant do anything for you, so whats the point in going there? everything they can do you can do at your house, I am firmly in favor of a waiver you need to sign if your not getting vaxed that waives the hospital of any of their duties to treat you, I always spout self accountability rhetoric, that's my olive branch to a vax that's about as trustworthy as the communists pushing it, in my opinion.
    • Who comes out on top in these singer vs singer match-ups. All random. No real rhyme or reason.  
    • Hour Of Doom - Cornerstone 
    • Steel Glove - Accept ( a collection of songs pre " Balls to the walls " )  
    • For some reason the first song's melody reminds me so much of Last Christmas by Wham.
    • From Escape Music: Bite The Bullet were originally formed in 1986 by singer songwriter Mick Benton and drummer Graham Cowling. They met in 1984 when they both joined West London rock band “Mother’s Ruin”. Thanks to the legendary Greg Lake, Benton managed to secure a solo deal with Atlantic Records and he asked Cowling to play drums. Its good to see that their collaboration is still strong to this very day. In 1986 “Bite the Bullet” were formed and the music played was in the style of Foreigner, Toto and Mr. Mister, an album was released in 1989 to some quiet success. The music was warmly received and the band earned themselves some radio airplay. However, britpop was coming into the forefront and a cancelled support slot with the mighty ELO saw the band disheartened and whilst they never really disbanded there was a long period of inactivity. Benton and Cowling always remained friends and they still played in pubs and clubs over the years which brings is up to 2019 when their debut was reissued on CD. It ignited a flame in the two men and brought the original recording back to the forefront again and old fans reappraised the album whilst new fans joined in. In January 2021 the year started with “Black and White” (ESM349) and the band have gone from strength to strength. They combine Mr Mister with Asia to produce a nice smooth rock pop sound. Mick and Graham Have continued writing new material and here we are with an exciting new third release “End of the Line” and the result is amazing; the new songs have given the band a new fresh sound, bringing us into 2022. What a way to start the new year!   Release Date: 21 Jan, 2022  Catalogue no: ESM361  1 Quicksand 4:20  2 Over You 4:26  3 End of the line 3:49  4 Cold Wind 3:45 5 Roundabout 4:20  6 Lost for Words 4:12  7 September Sun 4:03  8 Band of Brothers 4:35  9 Let it Go 3:56  10 Camaraderie 5:02  11 Base Jumping 4:11  12 Sunflowers and Roses 4:08 Line up Mick Benton – Lead Vocals, Guitar, Bass, Keyboards Graham Cowling – Drums Malcolm Jones – Guitar
