But we did collied with an 18 wheeler, with just four hours to go before we got to New Orleans!
This idiot truck driver thought he could make it across the track before our juggernaught, but he was wrong and we sliced through the truck like butter!
Impact was made, I fell out of my seat, there was loads of dust and grain (his load) flying about and then I saw half a truck roll past my window!
Well, that was the start of 7 hours of hanging around and finally being bused into NOL.
Not amused, finally got to my hotel at 8.30PM, took a shower, went to the hotel bar and had a very merry time with complimentary drinks! Think I made a friend for life with Jeffery, the bar tender.
