[DMCForum] Re: Caravans



Well it was not my caravan nor was it a mid atlantic caravan, nor
was I in charge of the traveling speed.  I was just riding along
with the other 7 to 9 cars that decided to drive down together, and
yes I think I had to step on it a few times to catch up with some of
the cars.  Of course my speedo only goes to 85mph so I will have to
take your word for it that the caravan broke 3 digits. :-)
