So a couple of friends and I were stuck in a traffic mess for over 4 hours during the southeast 'snow storm'. We were on our way to NC from riding in WV and some semi's were stuck on the road and later whatever was being used to free them also became stuck (so we heard)... we never actually saw the mess as we were miles behind it.
The time is around 12 or 1am, and my friend's camera had no life left but we managed to get at least one decent shot of me going over the ramp... and I say 'going over' because I couldn't get the speed to actually jump it... you'll see that he has to push me to get over the damn thing, lol.
Here's a shot of us building the ramp, with the traffic in the background:
I-70 is madd crazy sometimes. i went up in november and they closed I-70 at the silverthorne exit, it took me 3 hours to get from breck to silverthorne. i was in my truck and occasionally i would go off the side of the interstate and goof around with my truck. then id rejoin the mind numbing boredom of trafic. never built a ramp though.
I remember two winters ago during that blizzard that hit I was heading from Vail to Denver on I-70... took 11 hours, wish I had thought of making a ramp like this to pass the time. Trying to take a leak on the side of the road when it's bumper to bumper was impossible too.
