Beautiful Day for a Ride

71 clear and low humidity.

Went to Galveston and took the ferry. Listen to the Texans. 42.6 mpg.
Great day all the way around.

Cruel Mark,

Boring.

On the way back to my Dad's place after the Aug RTE in Victoria, got caught doing 70 in a 60 on an FM road that changed speed limit from 70 to 60 a few months earlier.

70 in a 60?

Here in NC they don't even look at you for that. Usually at least 15 over before they look, at 20 they look hard and 25 over gets you a pink sheet of paper.
