I think my rig came with a built-in headwind.

LOL, I know it seems that way a lot. That's why I wanted to tell about the good luck. I should buy a powerball ticket.

Wow! I sure wish I'd had that last Sunday coming from Hotevilla, AZ to Flagstaff and then to Kingman, and then Monday from Kingman to Crestline, CA! I had sideways blowing snow, rain and HORRENDOUS head and side winds all the way !!!It never stopped! I felt like I was driving through Armageddon!

Last spring we were headed west across Missouri, and was fighting 30-40mph headwinds. I turned north to at least give me a quartering tail/cross wind.
About thirty minutes later, the tornado hit Joplin. Had we not turned when we did, we'd have been right in the middle of it.
