 I just completed a drive from Lewistown, Montana to Miami, Florida going through the Dakotas, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan and then dropping South. Here are a few of the things we noticed.

The most highway patrolmen pulling over people was in Ohio. So many we googled it and found that in fact Ohio gives more tickets than any other state combined the ticket giving business is $6 billion a year revenue to the states.

I was amazed how few signs I saw for Clinton or Trump, certainly a scarcity of them. The Trump signs were always very large and homemade. They were not the traditional poster signs given by the candidates. I find this very interesting. It probably marks the intensity of his followers.

The price of gasoline varied from 3.27 a gallon at the airport in Miami to $1.84 in South Carolina. On average we paid 2.00 .Lots and lots of semi-trucks and discovered they get paid about 45 cents a mile up to 60 depending on the goods they are delivering and a few other things. So for my 2,500 miles I would have made $1,250; not easy money at all.

I have also had my fill of talk radio, but it can be helpful when getting sleepy. I found talk jocks I very much disagreed with and listened to them. Stayed awake with no problem.

Happy trails to all.
