    I did! Not just that time either, three or 4 times on the TAT the route was heading seemingly right into a serious storm. For miles and miles I'd be riding right toward a storm only to have the route veer off at the last minute and go around it. That phenomena was the weirdest part of the 8000 mile trip. Here's another example. I rode right toward this one for an hour then the route magically veered to the right around the storm and went into the low notch on the right side of the ridge. Stayed dry.
