Addendum: my gf just concurred "good idea!"

Or use any musk. They sell it at hunting supply store. I think it's often called "deer rut"? What a wonderful tailgater deterrent! I think, they think they are "drafting" and saving on their fuel costs. Good thing our bus goes so slowly... not many want to follow behind for very long.

I like this one!



As if I had to explain why, given the white swirls on black. Other than that, it's a lot less busy than many new rigs like the one in the photo Lorna posted.

It does occur to me that we are all just prisoners here of our own device.
