Rick and I were coming back from a job repairing a big Industrial washer. We ended up stuck in a construction zone on the highway near Saginaw. After sitting still for a few min Rick says "This is RB manuver # 865" and whips out into the closed off lane and hauls butt down to the next exit about 3 miles away! Loved that guy!
