Driving thru Kansas can be worse than Oklahoma. You can go for miles and miles in Kansas and not even see a billboard ad, especially in the black hills area of Kansas.

The Black Hills are in South Dakota. That is unless George, TJ, Abe, and Teddy moved south for the winter!:p

This is an interesting thread and also funny one too. :p

By the way, I am so sick of East Texan Drivers because they drive freaking slow for no reason! In Tyler, some drive fast and some drive slow but once you go out of city limit, they drive slow for no reason. I can tell you this and this is so real, if East Texans were driving in Houston, they would have been freaked out!! some can get freaked out in Dallas since Dallas is alright in speed everytime I go their. I know that East Texan is developing in driving since Tyler is getting a real big city with more and more traffics.

Old people drive slow. The one's that drive slow around there don't go to big cities for the reason you just gave.

At work, if someone does something slow, we tell them, "Your slower than a train ride thru Arkansas."

Have any of you guys ever heard of the Crossett lights? Supposedly, a kid got run over by a train in Crossett, Arkansas a long time ago. They say the conductor flashes his light on the old railroad location that's no longer there. There is a clearing of trees, but no tracks.

OK, I'm messing around. The Black Hills with Mt. Rushmore are in South Dakota. Death Valley is in California.

It all started because somebody said something about Black Hills in Kansas.

I thought you were messin with me! I mentioned the Black Hills of Kansas. I'm not sure if they are called that, but there is a section in SE Kansas that borders Okla., that looks like the black hills, and there is nothing there but black, baron hills, and that is all you see for miles and miles as you drive thru it. And, if you need to use the toilet, you might as well pull over because you won't see a gas station or a rest stop for quite awhile.

Why don't you try riding with me, ace. I can make it like a rollercoaster. I don't even have to always drive fast. I can see holes and how to get ahead of people in traffic.

One time, I took a sharp curve at about 45 late at night because I was testing out my new tires. I ran off the road, never hit the brakes, and had 3 tires in the dirt and grass (not the same 3 tires, either) for several seconds and came back on the road in one piece.

I also looked down going north on I-95 one time in Pennsylvania and came upon a massive traffic jam at a complete stop. I took to the grass at full speed to not have a wreck and came back on the Interstate in the same spot in line.

I used to speed a lot, but I don't do it anymore. Nevertheless, I'm still an ace at driving. In July, I did a mountain section going to Gila Cliff Dwellings in New Mexico in 57 minutes that the sign said took 120 minutes. I did the first section in 35 minutes that was supposed to take 80 minutes. I did that in a heavy van with a V-6 motor, so it's not like I had a sports car. If I had a good set of wheels, I could've probably done the drive in 37 minutes. I know when to brake and accelerate on curves and how to let off the gas without losing braking time.
