Just made the trip back from Dallas TX to NW Ark. No radar for most of the trip back except for the usual spots.
And about those usual spots: in OK, they have a law that limits the amount of funds that a police department receives from speeding tickets to 50% of their entire budget. It isn't enforced. There WILL be a cop waiting for you. Springtown generates 76% of their income from speeding tickets, Kiowa 65%, Atoka 72%. You know, your scummy little town with a cop with a bad attitude that gives all other LEO a bad name. May these towns rot away.

I now have even more hate against left land campers than before. The worst spot for left lane campers is on I49 between Fayetteville AR and Fort Smith AR through the Boston Mountains but they will be found everywhere on our highways. Through the Boston Mountains, there will be a long line of people camped out in the left lane as a Prius attempts and fails to pass a truck going up a mountain. Was forever getting trapped behind two vehicles traveling the same speed besides each other. Dante, in a much forgotten level of hell that was recently discovered set the 8th level for left lane campers in his book Inferno.

But at the end of the trip, plagued with road construction on I40 and I69, after I was caning it every chance I had, my wife smiles as she holds up her phone showing the time and claims that her best time is still 4 minutes faster. Crushed and overjoyed at the same time. Crushed because I still wasn't fast enough to beat her time, overjoyed that I have a wife that not only doesn't mind my speeding, set a time for me to beat.

I was feeling a bit bad about the hate that I was feeling for the left lane campers so I went to church yesterday and was talking to my Sunday School teacher about the trip back. Just like I asked you all before what speed you normally travel on the highway, I 'confesses my sins' to the only Sunday School teacher that I know who owns and drives a Lamborghini. Of course he got mad at me but not for the reasons that you might think. I also told him that I saw Ford vs Ferrari for the second time so and he has only seen it once so I will have to go back and see it for the third time with him.

So it is good to confess your sins - you just have to pick the right person. In turn, he sent me a bunch of videos of his latest driving trip where he was driving with a Ferrari F12 vs a new Lamborghini.

If he’d like to donate his old Lamborghini to a good cause, let me know. I consider myself pretty good.

Here is an article with video of my Sunday School teacher using his Lamborghini giving a guy a end of life wish come true. Again, if you have to confess something, you need to pick the right person.

What a great story! I love to see people giving back to the community and donating their time for something genuine as this. I just saw there is a linked follow up article with a video of them at the track. For some reason I was expecting the gentleman to be elderly, but that is not the case. He doesn't look like he's but around 40 years old.

I think Patrick is 67. He keeps telling me that one day he will let me drive his car - need to remind him again! Really nice guy.
He sent me some videos via email that was the raw footage of the link that you posted! I was asking what they were - he didn't give an explanation but your link filled in the blanks!
