Finally, about 3 miles from the end of WY-585N , a car pulls out in front of me, I slow down, and the logging truck and trailer comes flying by us both at about 70 miles an hour.

As Kaz had a major birthday awhile ago, she was subjected to the bar dare where she had to lick cream off the bare chest of a very well put together young man, of course, being jeered on by the rest of us.
