I grew up in the middle of farm country.
All of the roads were dirt or gravel.
I learned how to drive on a mountainous road with steep sides on each shoulder of the road. My mom and dad always told me to be well prepared in every situation. When I started driving, my dad warned me to always keep a blanket, flashlight, and flares in the car. In the event of an emergency, these items really come in handy. I had an emergency last weekend. I was working at the marijuana dispensary. I had a delivery order going out to the country. It was very wet and rainy. My car was slipping and sliding all over the place. I really need new tires. I started sliding on the road and I hit the brakes. As soon as I hit the brakes, the car started to slide. I couldn’t stop myself from heading towards the ditch. I hit the bottom of the gully and the impact was severe. I hit my head and the airbag deployed. There was no one on the road at that time of the night. Thankfully I had plenty of power in my cell phone. I contacted the marijuana dispensary and I told my boss that I was stuck in a ditch. She sent another driver to assess the situation. The driver was in a truck and the guy had a tow rope. He hooked the rope to the back of my car and pulled me out of the ditch. I had grass and mud in the fender, but the car still drove just fine even after the crash.
