Just wanted everyone to know that I have the fastest 18 wheeler in the world. This morning between 5:30 and 6:00 I hit 251 mph! That's almost a hundred miles per hour faster than last weeks top speed of 147! I seem to hit "top speed" around Ft Indiantown Gap which is some kind of big military base in central PA. I wonder if they jam the sat. signals near the base? This never happen before except in this area.

I cracked 181 MPH in my 2002 Turbo Jetta once...I have a GPS to prove it.

OMG, I found a picture of you!!!

While walking to a couple caches in the Alpine Lakes Wilderness I hit 774 MPH.
Kept it as the high speed in my receiver.

Amazing considering all the accidents that they have been having on I-81 this week. I feel for you if you got tangled up in any of those. Seeing that you drive truck I assume you hit Carlisle pretty often. :(

Top speed is distance vs time. Didja ever think that its the time thats off kilter? Imagine the military's Project Time Warp. Or is it just UFOs?


It's just a jump to the left
And then a step to the right...
Let's do the Time Warp again!

If I recall correctly, I once drove at 1200 mph according to my Venture. I also went for a walk and hit 40mph. I was able to look at my track log on that one and see it pointing me off to the west a few yards and then right back on the course I was really walking.
Those little satellite "hiccups" are neat. Hmmm I wonder if a 75 mph "hiccup" would hold up in traffic court?

I miseed all the wrecks thank God! With all the construction out that way and people being it's no wonder why people are getting killed. There's a section (Harrisburg Beltway I believe is the name) where I have to merge left then right all within 300' without killing myself or anyone else. It's insane.
