Yep, I experianced some major bad driving and road rage this week. I drove from Tampa to New Port Richey to Tallahassee to Jacksonville back to Tampa on Tuesday and Wednesday.

The Jacksonville trip usually takes 3.5hrs at most. This time it took 5 hours 45 minutes!!!!!

It ain't just Miami kids! Right here in good ol' landlocked Frankfort, IL the roads are FULL of beat-ass pickups loaded to the gills with landscaping crews. My neighbor got whacked by one a couple weeks ago. No license, no insurance, etc.

Be careful out there folks...
Glad he is ok

I feel so bad for Shorty Schultz, That is his boat. He bought it from John Elway last year. I saw Frankie and Shorty on the KW run during the lunch stop but saw them limping back on one motor later in the day. I hope the boat is salvagable and can be repaired for their sake. They are GREAT people

Glad to hear he's ok. Couldn't they have hit a Budweiser truck instead.... what a waste.
