Driving home from work, I saw a little plane flying along the opposite lane of the country road.  It whizzed past my van, following the curve of the road, just a little above what would be a car's roof level.  It was a radio controlled plane, and its wingspan was probably a good four or five feet, enough to fill the lane.  I was a bit startled.  I checked behind me to be sure I saw what I saw, (I had) and then looked forward again.

Then, I saw a little black four wheel monster truck speeding along the road, coming toward me in the opposite lane, with a G.I. Joe action figure "driving" and Barbie riding along in it, her blonde hair whipping behind her at highway speeds.  ZOOM!

These were closely followed by a white beat up full-sized pickup truck with a teen driver, and two teen guys also in the front seat, grinning like fiends while manipulating their control boxes.

I was torn between being immensely amused, and totally appalled!

I have no doubt they're having fun.

I hope they don't cause an accident; it would be appallingly easy to do.

I just hope that being out in the boonies as we are means there was little enough traffic that no one got hurt.

How'd they get the RC truck to do highway speed?

Sounds like they were having fun.

It was surprising, but it was indeed, speeding along!

I hate to say it, but if my (late) father-in-law and his next-older brother had been born today, they would have been two of those guys!

And you'd've been in the back of the pickup truck, cheering them on?

Actually, I might have been driving.

I am unsurprised.
