ratpag Célèbrates July 4th

Happy July 4th, America! Along with everyone else, ratpag has taken the day off. But take today to consider this transportation-related piece of history, Independence Rock, WY, the point which pioneers hoped to reach on their journey across the continent via the Oregon, California, or Mormon trails. Why did they wish to get here by July 4th? Because they would otherwise face snow as they attempted to cross the mountains too late in the season and would likely die. So consider that the next time you’re in the slow line at the grocery store or if your bus shows up two minutes late as we rest assured in the knowledge that you won’t likely die due to your minor, meaningless inconvenience. Happy Independence Day!
