18-wheeler problem

After reading and hearing on TV about the problems caused by 18-wheelers, I want to share my experience on I-30 in late June on a Saturday morning.

My friend and I were returning from a Rhode Scholar program in Arkansas. At Texarkana we started counting 18-wheelers we met or passed.

For two hours until we stopped in Greenville, we counted 700 18-wheelers. Our conversation was limited to, “I can’t believe this,” or “Did you count that red one?”

We’ll be driving to Alabama on I-20 next spring and will count them again.
