78 in a 60 - that's what the ticket would have read. Thankfully, South Carolina State Trooper Phillips decided to let Dave off with a warning tonight. Apparently if a ticket had been issued, Dave would have had to post bond of over $100 or go to jail and appear before the Judge tomorrow morning! Here's a question, can any of you tell what is written in the "race/ethnicity" section of this citation? Is that an "O" or a "U"? Suggestions are welcome as to what it means :)
The day was otherwise fairly relaxed. As we entered the Carolinas we really started to notice the accents get thicker, the country music stations seemed to multiply and "yall" tends to be a mandatory part of all sentences.
We left Virginia Beach with a plan to stay in Raleigh, but after some discussion, we decided to drive right through to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. We'll be here for a few days.
Tomorrow will be all about sun, sand and sleep (and maybe a little shopping) ("and hopefully no shopping", says Dave).
Our route today
