Just a reminder to all of those taking the 24 hour challenge. Sleep depravation can be just as bad, if not worse, than being drunk. Don't try to drive while tired. If you fall asleap at the wheel, people can get hurt or killed. Get a hotel room, take a cab/shuttle, or have a friend/relative pick you up. Be safe out there.

Best post please keep bumped. Or sleep it off in your car. When my hubby was in the military he almost died after falling asleep at the wheel while driving on the freeway. It can happen to you. - PrincessDuckie  904.9 #202 9:10PM
I had a similar experience while in the Navy. Did an all nighter fixing equipment on my ship. This was before Thanksgiving weekend. Drove from the Bay Area to LA on no sleep in the morning. Thank god I had a passenger who woke me up when I dosed off. It's scary. - ScooterMike  1963.0 #83 9:16PM
^ So glad nothing happened. My hubby veared off the freeway and hit a tree. Thank goodness there happened to be an excellent plastic surgeon on duty at the hospital. It was a single truck accident I know he would if felt worse if others would of been hurt. I also feel asleep while driving in the fast lane on the 5 in MV. Thank goodness it was during the morning rush and traffic was just creeping. It scared the heck out of me! It was like the 40th day straight of 15 hour days (SW Development).( After i told this story to my boss i was finally able to get a day off!)I - PrincessDuckie  904.9 #202 10:30PM

 Terrific information! We all get so excited about things that the most basic common sence goes right ou the window. I am so guilty of that... My park plans blew up as my parnter in crime bailed on me, I was so upset, still planning on hopeing in the truck and going to the park after many house of not sleeping. Thank you ScooterMike for giving me pause to think a bit more like an adult lol. See you all in the afternoon. I will be solo and looking forward to meeting other MWs

Most of us have been to Disneyland dozens, if not hundreds of times. Very few have done an all nighter there, Grad Night being an exception. Everyone is bussed in for Grad Night, and safely bussed home. It's easy to let your guard down while having fun on vacation. It's important to be smart and stay safe. - ScooterMike  1963.0 #83 9:00AM
Yes be safe out there! My husband got pulled over because they thought he was drinking and it was because he was tired! Goes to show how bad your diving can be when your tired. - MrsMinnie  63.4 #4329 9:03AM
