I know ... I know ... And some of these U-turns are a bit illegal. Is the turn-off on the southern side or the northern side of the road?

well...the road pretty much runs East-West....if you're traveling east on 70 it's on the right-hand side.

traveling west...it's a left turn, jug-handle and back to eastbound, right-hand side.

If the rain stops. we'll be ok. The wind also needs to shift to come out of the NW.

No matter what, this aint gonna be no florida race.
