my tune gets me over 30mpgs hwy easily. I just don't see the need for an unaerodynamic 5.9L V8 in ANY car with the kind of technology out there. Trust me, I LOVE Jeeps, have owned 4 of them myself and like 10 in my immediate family, but they don't ever do well on gas.

haha, i think it should be speed limit sensitive to the time of day...

you got a picture of it at a good time.

For the next time you're in Ontario, don't be afraid to wander to 120kph, they tend to only start going after people going over 120kph, and trust me, there's almost always people going well in excess of that.

I wouldn't recommend 120kph from a GPS standpoint though, then you're taking a risk. set it at about 115 on the GPS and you'll be safe.

Other provinces can get higher speed limits then Southern Ontario. Even when you get to northern Ontario, you can see some 110kph roads (68ish mph)

The one thing i've never figured out, the 401 maintains 100 all the way through toronto, which is a suicidal speed in such a congested city.

Even Germany was pretty dull when we were there a couple of years ago. Most areas are 120kph and many areas near cities are 80kph. We hit only 4 areas of no speed limit and they lasted only 10 or 12 miles. I drive faster for longer periods here in IL than I did in 10 days in Germany.

with all honesty, after all the roads i've driven over the last year and a bit (and that's a lot considering i've been from east to west and back again, and then some...) from windsor to toronto is the most boring road of all of them.

I wish the highway were at least divided so you had some nice scenery on both sides. But no, it couldn't be any flatter and less featureless.

Quote:
Top 20 Worst Venue Names in the United States:
20. The Norva (Norfolk, Virginia)
* Reminds me of a Seinfeld episode, “Mulva!”
19. Crocodile Rock (Allentown, Pennslyvania)
* Don’t ever name your venue after a cheesy Elton John song (ever!).
18. iPayOne Center (San Diego, California)
* Dotcom venue sponsorships often don’t work.
17. Benedum Center (Pittsburgh, Pennslyvania)
* Just sounds boring.
16. Minute Maid Park (Houston, Texas)
* I liked it better when it was Enron FIeld.
15. University of Phoenix Stadium (Glendale, Arizona)
* Online college has nothing to do with City of Phoenix.
14. Petco Park (San Diego, California)
* Goofy name, but it keeps growing on me.
13. Mellon Arena (Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania)
* Not named for Thornton Melon.
12. Whataburger Field (Corpus Christi, Texas)
* Great burgers, weird name for a stadium.
11. Littlejohn Coliseum (Clemson, South Carolina)
* Venues shouldn’t be named after Robin Hood characters.
10. Quicken Loans Arena (Cleveland, Ohio)
* Corporate naming rights gone wrong.
9. Papa Johns Stadium (Louisville, Kentucky)
* Fast food companies after second worst after dotcom companies.
8. Taco Bell Arena (Boise, Idaho)
* I wonder how often they play the “Doooooooooooooong”?
7. Energy Solutions Center (Salt Lake City, Utah)
* They could jazz up the place with a great nickname like the Power Palace.
6. Dunkin Donuts Center (Providence, Rhode Island)
* Time to make the donuts.
5. Superpages.com Center (Dallas, Texas)
* Drop the .com and it goes from horrible to just plain bad.
4. Glass Bowl Stadium (Toledo, Ohio)
* The best of the worst, my favorite bad name venue.
3. Amway Center (Orlando, Florida)
* For every ticket you buy, you have to sell 6 more to friends.
2. Bagley Field at Dowdy-Ficklen Stadium (Greenville, South Carolina)
* The Fick rocks! I’m sure they were all great people, but the combination is horrendous.
1. Jobing.com Arena (Glendale, Arizona)
* The worst possible dotcom name they could put on a venue.

slavik,

i like how your last picture is nice and saturated/contrasty.

Doak Sheridan Campbell was president of Florida State College for Women, as it made the transition from an all-female school under that name to the coeducational Florida State University, between 1941 and 1957

Baseball Stadium:
Quote:
Richard Dalton Howser (May 14, 1936–June 17, 1987) was an American Major League Baseball shortstop, coach and manager. He is best known as the manager of the Kansas City Royals during the 1980s, and for guiding them to the franchise's only World Series title in 1985.

A native of Miami, Florida, Howser grew up in West Palm Beach, Florida, graduated from Palm Beach High School and attended college at Florida State University. At Florida State, he received honors twice as an All-American shortstop and set a school record with a batting average of .422 in 1956.
They don't pick the names of significant people in the University's history.

Good luck keeping your hair up in a convertible.

I can see Cloud, but also kinda looked like the main character from Kingdom Hearts. I'm not really up too speed with all the RPG characters out there.
