I'm with you Francesca.
If I'm impeding even one vehicle I pull over as soon as possible.
I live about 40 miles east of Bakersfield Ca. near Lake Isabella which is a major weekend and summer attraction. It's also an entrance to the Sequoia National Forest.
Hiway 178 goes up through the Kern River Canyon which is a narrow, twisty road with spectacular scenery and steep drop offs down to the river.
Locals dread the weekends and summer because of the rude drivers of mohos and travel trailers.
The narrow part is only about 15 miles long but it seems much longer when you are #17 in line behind a trailer or Moho going 22 miles an hour and then slowing down on the curves.
The sad thing is there are at least 3 turn outs long enough to pull into that you only have to slow down and not stop plus many other shorter pull outs.
I was about #17 in line behind a 16 or 17' Casira last Friday who was enjoying the scenery and going about 20 to 25 MPH.
Local drivers have no problem driving safely at around 50 mph on major portions of the canyon. I safely tow my 16' Scamp
at 45 and 50 MPH up major portions of the canyon.
Most locals understand the apprenhension of drivers not used to Mtn. driving. We also understand the desire to enjoy the magnificent scenery. We would appreciate if you would enjoy the scenery in ONE of the MANY pullouts.
Myself and others were giving the offensive, rude person with the Casita
the "other kind of wave" when we were able to pass after we got out of the Canyon.
PLEASE remember to be considerate and pull over when you are restricting the flow of traffic behind you. It will be greatly appreciated.
