Tunnels and Semis and Traffic...oh my!
One of my biggest fears is driving through tunnels. I avoided it at all costs, driving, that is. I have no problem riding if someone else is driving. But today, I braved it. I actually drove through three separate tunnels, the Hampton Roads Bridge Tunnel, the Downtown Tunnel Portsmouth, and the Monitor-Merrimac Monitor Bridge Tunnel (MMMBT). See, I have almost realistic visions of my crashing and dying in a tunnel and not getting out, ever! You know, in the movies, the driver hits a bump, swerves a bit, over corrects, hits the wall, bounces into a neighboring car, and goes *BOOM*! But today, I conquered that fear. Well, for today at least. We'll see about tomorrow.
