What is it about Alabama?
So in out holiday travels, we drove from NC to Dallas, TX (with the dogs) to visit one of our great families. Small drive. Only 1150 miles, one overnight in Jackson, MI... the state that never stops trying to be 49th at something.
Back to Alabama though. Drove successfully through two huge speed traps... one before B'ham and one after. First sting had 10 chaser cars busy as we drove by. Second had only six or seven, but there, two officers were on an overpass "shooting cars."
My guess... state needed money and one of the 39 incredibly important bowl games... the Papa John Bowl or something or other, was there the next day. Voila! Opportunity.
