Great road, and if traveling to/from Texas, the Indian highway south over the mountain from Talimena is great too.

Re: get yer ridin' in soon, boys-n-girlz

Yea, I was starting college and had no money. As I recall there was an OPEC embargo at the time. I have a feeling they may sit this one out. Hezbo-whatever is not making any friends this time.
