when you're disgusted that most school busses, and even 18whlrs. are so much faster than in the past.
It used to be that school buses were sticks that even a vw van could blow away on the bottom end. Now w AT, they jack rabbit after their stops, leaving you to look bad.
On trips now, it's only the older or more heavily laded 18whlrs. that I pack with going up the steepest freeway grades in America. And, yes... all of us are running our flashers as we cruise uphill at 30mph.

About the only buddies we still have left is to fall behind a cement mixer truck!!!

when you slow down for the head winds on a trip in mid USA, and you have no trees, or flags to gauge the wind; but you are burning your eyes out trying to watch the grass wave

when you have all the manhole covers and other like bumps so memorized to avoid needless wear and tear on your veh., that your racing line can almost be done in your sleep!
