Most of our travel on the interstate highway system is posted for 75 miles an hour as the speed limit and that feels comfortable and "normal."  Something new in the northern UT area was a posted limit of 80!  We were quite surprised.  I wasn't driving through that section but my husband thought it felt a bit uncomfortable, though he seemed to adjust quite nicely.

Before too long we were back at the posted 75.  And then we hit OR and a posting of 65!  That seems like we are crawling at a snail's pace.  But it's the law and we slow down.  And we try to think about something besides how much longer it will take us to go the last 300 or so miles.  And we get here--safe and sound and none the worse for taking it easy.

  1. Wow, you will never find an 80 mph sign in HI. I think 55 is the max.
