I love driving. I recently relocated a truck from middle of South Island to the north island. 2x 12 hr days, and I felt safe as. Never saw any wrecks!! Mind you the roads are prolly a bit more quiet than Texas.I'm fixin' (as we say in Texas) to make the long, ugly drive home from Houston to Dallas. I really hate that drive, and being a holiday weekend, the traffic is going to be terrible. I don't make that drive in the MINI. There are too many idiots and trucks -- and idiots in trucks. I'm in a RAM crew-cab 4X4 pickup, so I have a fighting chance at survival. It is a 250 mile drive, and I will see at least to wrecks along the roadway.
