An accident waiting to happen.

What started out as a regular little weekend getaway turned out to be a little adventure.

We made record time getting on the road, groceries and supplies were ready, hooked up the truck and we were off. Lets take the Massey tunnel I said, i’ll use the HOV lane to really save time I said.

Enter the tunnel, and stop! News reports a crash, then they report a bus / car head on collision. Then they report a two hour wait. Uhm we are in the tunnel.

The good news is that nobody was seriously hurt. Bumps and bruises and possibly the driver of the car has a new broken hip. Hopefully all will recover just fine.

After about an hour or possibly longer, we are advised that if we can, we are allowed to back out of the tunnel. I’m certain one day there will be video of this crazed camper on the news, until then, know that you can back 55′ of truck & trailer through the Massey tunnel and down the wrong way of Highway 99. Yep, we did that!
