Wow! This trip was packed with good news, bad news. I hope, in the end, the good outweighs the bad. But your curious fans need to know -- how much was your speeding ticket?
Oh, for sure -- much more good than bad. :-)
I still haven't opened the ticket...but apparently I was going 50 in a 35 (literally just 10s of meters before the 45 mph sign -- total BS speed trap!).
4-hour online driving class $172.
Sounds like it'll be riveting... "It's four webpages with a timer of an hour, and the quiz you have to take at the end is based on the four pictures they show you on each page. For example, the first page is all about driving basics and at the end of the page it shows you a picture of a monkey with a key chain. To get to the next page it asks you what the key chain was. Those are the questions you have to answer to pass the course at the end."
