DC to TX. Will update from the road.

Going to San Antonio from DC. Tonight I made a stop off at my brother's in PA and tomorrow morning I start out for real. First I need to find my car though, I parked it at Home Depot a few hours ago and haven't seen it since...

what was the ticket for?

I remember I got a ticket on base a while back and my sponsor got in trouble. He said I ran a stop sign, but, honestly I didn't.

45 in a 30. It was on Truemper, in a direction with no speed limit signs. Since anywhere in the real world the speed limit would be 50 on that road, I was driving expecting it to be 35. Since I wasn't looking at my speedometer at the time I will concede up to 40 just for a margin of error but I highly doubt I was doing 40. Well they claim I was going exactly 45, which just so happens to be the exact speed where it upgrades to excessive speeding and I got suspended for 30 days. The other interesting thing is that I was shifting from 2nd to 3rd at the time and had a cold engine, meaning that I would have hit the rev limiter before 45. That and the appeal process takes longer than 30 days to hear back from.
