After about 5 minutes of this I see my solution, couldn't see what it was at the distance, could only see that there was something on the road, turned out to be a 2x4 about 18" long lying perpendicular to the center line. the timing was perfect cause there was a car to pass, so I signaled and did a slow lane change and missed the 2x4 by an inch , and old JM hit it. I could hear the 2x4 hitting the underside of his car, he slowed right away and pulled over, must have scared the crap outta him, I just waved bye bye to him in my mirror, often wonder if he learned his leason
