Yeah I've travelled in 8 lane highways in Seoul and other places, I do get around. I could hop,in a car and drive 12 hrs straight. I once drove 7 hrs for a race (I was there for 30 mins) and then turned around and drove home.Keep in mind that the State of Texas has about six-times the population of New Zealand. Houston and Dallas alone have more people than New Zealand. Mass transit between major cities in Texas is basically non-existent. Everyone drives almost everywhere here. Holidays are a nightmare.
