The 5 freeway madness

Post by illminded1 » Sat Jul 26, 2008 6:55 am

So i leave at 6 am to go to the con..... which should of only been a 1 1/2 drive and some stupid oil tanker crashed off the 5 and started a huge fire.... the freeway was closed in both directions..... i had to turn around and take a detour that took forever to say the least!!! i end up getting there 2 hrs after the con started!! so much for getting there early... sh*t.

Did anyone else get stuck in that ???

I didnt get pics ..... damn.... was everything gone that you wanted???

Looks like you were in a spot where you could turn around tho.... i was near camp penelton marine base where there is no where to turn around. I drove up the emergency lane for miles... untill some rump holes tried blocking me!!!

I was thinking to turn back, by the time I started raging !! I reached pass the checkpoint by the power plant there was no turning till Oceanside. MIght as well go all the way !!!! I only got a THursday batch to attend/pickup. This traffic started way pass RAncho Santa MArgarita/SAn CLemente till Los? LAs? PULgas exit.

I saw couple of cars zoom-by the emergency road. Yet a patrol car finally caught one or two after the border checkpoint by CAmp Pendelton.

Really ?? Ortega highway to the 15 was not that bad..... It was only about 20 to 30 miles out of the way.... Then again if i didnt have gps there is no way i would of got there at the time that i did i would of taken me way longer.... Also los Pulgas is where i turned around... I saw traffic stopped way past that exit.....Grrrrr. I should of got there at 8 am but after all that mess i didnt get there till after 10 .

I was stuck in the middle of that traffic mess. I got there about 30ish minutes after the accident/clean up happened. The cars around me where all trying to get to the Con (parking decals in their cars were obvious), and we were all frustrated to be stuck there. I stuck out the jam (loosing my morning advantage to get there early), but I weaved a bit to get to the faster moving lanes. I lost about an hour, but after clearing the accident, I sped like a demon to get to the Con. There were masses of people there by the time I arrived, but I lucked out in parking when I arrived so it all worked out! Next year, though - I go to San Diego the nite before or leave earlier than I left this year! I left at 4:45 am from Downtown L.A.!
