Started out the other morning on my 40 miler to work at 06:00. About 5 miles in the ride I hit a fog blanket. Now as a rule I don't mind riding in the fog but on this occassion riding on a major highway on a weekday from Beer Sheva to Eilat with a foot wide shoulder in some places - that's a whole nother can of beans. Well I stuck pretty close to the extreme right side of the shoulder all the way up to a junction where I make a left. Scariest left I can remember, a truck driver bearing down in the opposite direction didn't have his lights on and I almost made a left right into his path - whew. Luckily the fog lifted on the other side of the hill range and I had clear sailing for the last 15 miles or so.
Later that day I heard there was a fatal accident on that same section of road (a bit further south) - about the same time I was there.
Well I've got a few prayers to make.
Y'all take care
