We were on a newly paved rural highway heading towards the beach in North Carolina and I couldn't find a speed limit sign anywhere. Two jacked up pick-up with rebel flags and huge antennas went by. I followed right behind- they pulled into the right lane and slowed down, so did I, they pulled back out and went fast, so did I. We got there pretty quick with no ticket
i do the same thing. so i guess your the one that wont go around me but stays the same distance behind me no matter how fast im going.

We took the inland route. Left at noon Sunday, stopped at 10 in Orangeburg, SC and back on the road at 7. Pulled into POFQ at 2. So, 17 hours. Mr. Garmin said that if I drove straight through, I would be at POFQ at 2:21 a.m., but by the time we stopped at 10, the arrival time had changed to 3:56 a.m. I want to know what the engineers were smoking when the designed I4 through Orlando.
congrats!!!!!

i4 through orlando, left lane, alot of offensive driving and as my dad would tell us when we were little, in the 70s, sit down,shut up and hold on!!!!
same way through jacksonville!!!

Question Delaware memorial bridge

How is the morning rush hour traffic on the Delaware Memorial Bridge (southbound) around 7:00-7:30 am? We plan on using Ez pass for the toll.

Nothing like NYC area bridges! Stay left once you are approaching the toll barrier. EZ pass lanes on left and you'll stay out of the way of the folks trying to get into Wilmington past the tolls.

Great!! We may change to June, I'm having second thoughts about leaving my Dad alone at Thanksgiving, even though there's plenty of relatives around and it will be more than a year. I'm very conflicted right now!!! Our June dates would be something around 6/18 through the 26th or so. Would we cross over??

A friend worked at WDW in IT for a while. She joked about the two-finger point too!
