I stopped to buy gas and lost the truckers. When we got back on the interstate, I set the cruise for 79, 4 MPH over. A green GMC Jimmy from Michigan passed me like I was standing still. I reckon he was doing 90 MPH at least. He had a bright yellow lightening symbol on his back window. Very distinctive. A mile or so later the radar detector went off and I slowed down to 75. Then I saw a Colorado State Trooper had somebody pulled over. It was the GMC Jimmy. I went on, thinking, better him than me :)
I crossed the state line into Kansas where the speed limit is 70. So I set the cruise for 74. In a few miles, the Jimmy passed me again like I was standing still. This guy was in a big rush. And a few miles later the radar detector went off again. Now, you know the rest of the story, right? Perhaps the guy was trying to see how many speeding tickets he could get from different states in one day? Anyway, in a little while he zoomed past me again. Maybe his luck changed, because I didn't see him again.
Not much on the pix today. Stopped just long enough to get the state line pix below.

His son says, "Well, you came home after 3 A.M., drunk and delirious. Broke some furniture, puked in the hallway, and gave yourself a black eye when you stumbled into the door."
Confused, Marty asks, "So, why is everything in order and so clean, and breakfast is on the table waiting for me?"
His son replies, "Oh that! Mom dragged you to the bedroom. And when she tried to take your pants off, you said, 'Lady, leave me alone, I'm married!'"
