That could have been us. Mostly on 10 it is un-even expansion joints. So you get a ramp then drop off effect. We do have some roads like that thou, Mississippi near Jackson would qualify as well.

I talk to many people (nearly daily) who purchase SUV's because they ride better on our roads (true) than cars. What gets me is the Speed lumps that are SUV sized and I can't clear at over 3mph in the golf (with a 20mph sign).

Totally agree with that point!!!!!

No longer is the saying..."Pork - the other white meat"
It is now..."Pork - the next bridge to nowhere"
