So I work for Pepsi which means I drive a lot. I'm one of the sales reps for the western part of Colorado, mostly the mountains and ski resorts (Aspen, Vail, Keystone, Breckenridge, Steamboat) so sometimes I have to drive to far places with literally nothing for like 50 miles in between the towns. Anyways, today I was going to Steamboat which is always a pain in the ass because I basically have to drive on a two lane road for about 120 miles, one way. So as I'm driving to this little ass town, I'm talking four houses and a small convenience store that is mostly used for hunters. So there is this like 20 mile stretch where there is zero cell phone service and it's pretty flat and rural and as I'm driving along in my van I see this guy walking down the road. No broken down cars, no other people, no bike or anything. So I slow down and roll down my window and ask the guy if he needs any help. Instead of responding he walks directly across the road towards the van's passenger side. I instinctively locked the fucking doors cause this dude was pretty sketchy looking and he tries to open the door, looks up at me and says "hey man come on give me a ride!". I asked him why he was walking and where he was going. Instead of getting a response he sort of gets this desparte/worried look on his face and he tells me he is going to this town which was the opposite way he was walking. At this point I'm like fuck this guy, he is nothing but trouble so I say "sorry man I was just making sure you were okay, I got a schedule I have to keep to and I don't have time to give you a ride". Then he goes from playing nice to pounding on the window demanding I let him in, which at this point I start pulling off. THEN BAM! He pulls out a fucking pistol, luckily I was already pulling away so it wasn't pointed in the window and the van I drive has no other windows besides the two front ones. I was freaked the fuck out and just gunned it and I've never been happier for a 7.3 liter V10 diesel. I left that fucker in the dust and had a fucking scare man. You guys got to take into account there is no towns for like 30 miles and no cell phone service and rarely any other people driving on the road. I would have been fucked. Anyways I'm back home safe and about to cook myself a huge steak and blaze up to chill the fuck out. If anyone ever drives Highway 131 DO NOT stop to pick anyone up.
