We left California, drove right across Nevada into Utah to get to Salt Lake and a funny thing happened on the way.  

The journey was several hundred miles, we had to stay overnight at some god forsaken place called Elko.  Kevin was driving on nondescript highway, just trying to make headway.  Out of nowhere, as is their way, blue flashing light behind us.  

 No.  It's not for us.  He's going past on his way to some emergency.  Uh-uh.  It IS for us. He's not going past.   Pull over. Wait in car several minutes.  See police officer, hand on gun, sidle up to open window.  Sir.  Do you know how fast you were going.  Kevin: um, well I THINK it was around 80/85?  Sir.  Can I see your driving licence?  Fumble fumble through all the bags, yes here it is.  May I see your passport.  Oh god it's in the boot.  Is this your car?  Can I see your rental agreement please..... Where are you going sir?  Kevin: well officer we are on our way to a place called Elko, it's been a long drive and I was just trying to make up a little time .... I know I was probably going a little fast. Well sir, you were actually doing 90 miles per hour and this is a 75 zone, I'm going to give you a caution on this occasion and just advise you to keep the speed down ok?  Now, if you're going to Elko you have to try the blah blah blah restaurant, it's the BEST food out there.   And he proceeded to give us directions on how to get there.  Just slow it down okay.  Ok yes we definitely will.

KEVIN, BADBOY, MCMAHON  can't be on his high horse about Florida any more !   What a great story.
