Shep is home and safe.  I've talked to him a few times, and he is doing fine.  A bit sore, but that's about it.

Didn't really need to all get out, but I'm okay. Headed for Q, left home about 9:30 Wednesday evening (left early cause stomach was junk and couldn’t sleep). Drove about 8 hours, got tired so I stopped a rest stop and napped for about 2 ½ hours. Got something to eat and drink and took off. ½ hour later, about 44 miles west of Needles got sleepy again. Was going to fuel up in Needles and nap again. Didn’t make it, fell asleep, woke up going off road into the center divider on I-40.at 61mph (cruise control was set). Went 30-40 yards till I hit one of those cross-overs between east and west routes. TH is totaled and truck we’ll have to see, but I’m okay. Appreciate the concerns.

We do some questionable things sometimes Shep, but I'm glad that the good Lord is watching out for you.  How could we replace you man?

Shep, 

    First off, glad to hear you are OK. That scenario you described could have went horribly worse than what it did and you are very lucky to be talking about it.

 

Stay safe Shep, recoup and see you in the Gold fields.

That road from Barstow/Yermo to Needles is one of the most boring at night.  I'm glad it was not worse.  Lu and I wish you the best.

Oh my, Shep! I'm so very thankful you are okay! You're definitely irreplaceable! Hope your insurance takes care of the rest of the damage so you will be able to make it back out here for the next outing. Take care!
