    Kevin (friend) drove about 9 hours last night while I drove about 5 hours.
    Then today, he drove the first 100 miles and I finished the rest of the trip back home with over 850 miles. /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

    It took almost 9 frickin hours just to get out of Texas from Kingvilled to the OK/TX border. /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif We were stuck in traffic while waiting for 2 accidents, each a mile apart, to clear up and let traffic flow again. /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif

    Then we had to drive in Ft. Worth (we stayed the hell out of Dallas!!), Waco (not bad), Austin (sucks), San Antonio (sucks), and just about any other large city with I-35 or I-37 running thru it. /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif

    Yep I live in Austin and I take 35 to work every morning and back home in the afternoon, it's probably the best road in Austin(traffic wise) during rush hour...

    Re: I\'M NEVER DRIVING IN TEXAS EVER AGAIN!!!

    Normally I'd say you're a wussy/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif but I agree and had a similar experience with some of what you went through. I came back up through Dallas after an adventure with my alternator. DBlazer and his wife came and helped me out and we drove through some road work...I had no power steering belt and was flat towing an 82 Blazer. I swore I almost wiped out the temporary barriers a few times.

    As for Dallas itself...I'd probably still be lost there if Nash hadn't led me back to the freeway the next day./forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif

    I wasn't in Texas long enough to get stuck in any traffic though.

    Re: I\'M NEVER DRIVING IN TEXAS EVER AGAIN!!!

    I-35 is a pia but once you get off the interstates driving in TX is great. I used to travel from Ft. Worth to College Station quite a bit and that road from Waco to College Station was about the best 2 lane road I've ever driven...you ask why? Because the shoulders are about the size of another lane so in effect you have 4 lanes, 2 in each direction. People were always real good about moving over to the shoulder to let people pass. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Ya long distance driving is cake... but in SA its somewhat bad, austin isn't so bad... I can't imagine houston (havent been there in years). Rain, wrecks and lan eclosures make driving incredibly gay.

    Texas ain't no thing like a chicken wing on a g-string.

    If you think Texas is bad (lol), I wouldn't recommend I95 north from DC to Boston, GW bridge forget about it. Hell even L.A. has its moments.
    LOL hahaha Texas. Only bad thing about Texas traffic, is when it rains everyone down there turns into a bunch of retards and run into each other.

    L.A. can suck pretty bad. Pulled our little 21 foot camper trailer through rush hour there a few years back. Very interesting experience.../forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif

    San Franciso sucks

    Portland sucks

    Denver sucks

    Seattle sucks extra hard

    Dallas...confusing place

    Ft Worth, cake walk, never got off the 35 though

    Witchita, would have been better without the Tornado

    Overall most big cities suck for traffic. Vancouver...sucks/forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    Re: I\'M NEVER DRIVING IN TEXAS EVER AGAIN!!!

    You forgot a few....

    DC sucks....

    Arkansas (I30) sucks...

    Oklahoma sucks...(and not just for the roads)...

    Iowa...whats up with 55 on the freeways?

    Tennessee...Troopers all seem to be related ot Buford T Justice...

    Louisiana...I20 is rough as a dirt road...

    Pueblo Colorado....I Counted 28!! cars doing speed trap duty...a shooter on both sides of the road, and a line of about 10-12 chasers...and At Least 10 Troopers with cars stopped on either side of the road writing tickets....It was Fawkin' Amazin'....speed limit is 75, and they seemed to be stopping those 10+ over...I didn't get stopped...

    I'm sure there are others... /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
