From home,always..whether it was Brockton, Cambridge, Hyannis (90 miles), or Prov. RI...120,000 miles in 6 months one year...two foot driver, oh, the horror,..made 1 run to RI in 35minutes....all those years 78 to 94...for me, kinda hard to NOT be a good drver..no accidents, jjust 1 ticket coming off the cape..

Funny story..the trap cop had so many pulled over by the time he waved me over, he then waved me on...I thought it was my car and good looks...nope, Saturday morning, knock knock, local cop..hands me a ticket for Over speeding..I asked local (small town) cop..what is over speeding?...don't remember how fast clocked...I knew local cop, he was great keeping teens out of trouble...

Cut chops on 495, 95, Mass Pike....must have been training for driving in AZ....bad bad bad...I still love driving, still two footed, only difference now..I wear a seat belt....

There was a lot of good roadwork here. ananda Jul 2021 #1
