John E Davies Posted June 27, 2019 Share Posted June 27, 2019 We are traveling north toward Canada and we passed a southbound Elite II being towed by a white Land Cruiser or Sequoia, a mile south of Okanogan, WA on US 97. I pulled over at the next turnout, hoping the other one would do a u turn and rendezvous with us. Nope.... We need a standard set of rules for head-on passing encounters. On a narrow mountain forest road, uphill vehicles have right of way and downhill vehicles should pull over and give them room. Maybe we could adopt something like this..... If one of the owners wants to meet, flash your headlights rapidly. North or east bound Ollies have “right of way”, and should proceed, then pull over and wait when possible, or exit the next off ramp from a freeway. South or west bound Ollies should do a u-turn when possible and safe, and go back to meet the other. Obviously this has limitations when traveling on the Interstates, especially when the exits are thirty miles apart. But it could work OK on secondary highways and county roads..... For situations where you overtake an Ollie on a freeway, the passing Ollie should exit at the next offramp or rest area and the other should follow. That would be simple.... We waited ten minutes but never saw that other Ollie, but he may have pulled over to wait for us..... LOL. Comments? Please discuss. We could post an article with these “rules” in the Newsletter for those who don’t hang out here.
