See new post "40 + MPG Air and Auto Vehicles"
I often picture how well my 40 mpg Honda Del Sol would fit under the 18 wheelers that I draft on occasion. In reality doing 75+ next to four of the xxx tires and wheels, parts of which are constantly displayed along the once upon a time freeway is a bigger concern.
Well having lived in Alaska 30 years what amaze's me is that the international date line zig zags around all manner of geo-political boundaries. But what really seems to matter is business's relation to time. When I first arrived in Alaska there were 5 time zones and it was near impossible to do business across the state especially if it involved a state agency. So the 5 time zones were condensed into one time zone and business was much happier, the sun never new the difference.From: California Bans Small Off-Road Gas Engines, Including Lawnmowers and Chainsaws
A weaving flight back-and-forth across the international dateline will let you see either the sunset or the sunrise many times in a hour
Anyone care to reply to that!
It’s strange everybody else gets to make mistakes even the cops that write me the tickets but if I drive just 1 mile over the top of the Hondas everybody is all upset…..Thanks.
I wish other drivers would be as concerned when doing 10 over and passing on a rain soaked multilane roadway
Are there thay many Hondas?I always though that Hondas were best used to fill potholes in I-95 from Maryland to NY. One per pothole, a bit of asphalt and patch is done, hole filled. I have to drive up to Philly on occasion, it makes flying look totally safe and easy. Even Ultralight flying, which friends keep telling me will kill me. Need new friends........
With me it usually seems to be vehicles with tall wheels, tires only one inch tall, and a bumblebee resonator on the tailpipe that they seem to think improves the performance dramatically (it doesn't).More often than not when I get pissed at a driver the car is a Subaru
We drove Flagstaff to Memphis on I-40 last week. The right lane was absolutely filled with semi's, and 99% were doing a great job. However, about every 20 minutes, a semi would pull out into the fast lane to pass another semi. No problem, except it usually took him about 10 minutes the complete the pass on get back in the right lane.Your Honda underneath my 18 wheeler is a constant concern of mine.
We had a cross wind all the way across NM and TX. Steady wind of about 20 MPH, with regular gust of 40 MPH, a peak gust of 60 MPH was reported on our route. The news that night showed as idle trailer being overturned by the wind.I-40 is notorious for that, especially in Tennessee. It really needs another lane.
