We were caught in some insane winds crossing from Barstow to Bakersfield on the 58 on our way to Yosemite less than 2 weeks ago.
The winds were coming from our left (non-camp side). I guess we were lucky. This could have been our result too if the wind were coming from the right.
At one point we did hear a crash right behind the drivers seat. Realized later it was probably an empty plastic water bottle. - we had seen a few fly across the freeway-
It left no marks, but you can imagine what the sounds like when the bottle hits the side at 60 miles an hour.
