Grin and bear Ruston roads
The construction on that main north-south artery was so bad at one point that I think he actually considered hitting the Sonic on California Avenue for lunch, which is a rare hiccup in his highly regimented world. Since construction has somewhat eased in that area (and I stress somewhat), the complaints have not been as barbed, but you can tell it still irks. It’s not one-laned anymore, but the narrowness and the grade drop-off are still big problems for commuters. He worries that even in his small vehicle, he’s going to clip some poor highway worker.
