Equipment: V1 3.813 also known as teh best revision ever.
Scenario: This morning I set off for school which is about 25 miles, of long straight stretches followed by the huge hills in Eastern KY.
I was starting to crest one of those rather large hills, when I get a blip of Ka. So I'm thinking how pathetic of an alert this is going to be. I clear the top, and no trooper in sight...
I coast back down the hill, thinking it could have been instant on. As I reach the bottom of the hill I get another blip of Ka. Another mile later as I'm approaching the next massive hill, I get another blip of Ka. This time as I slowly start to ascend up the hill, the strength meter starts to gradually increase. As I near the crest it's pegged, and what do I see? A State Trooper setting off to the right shoulder with his rear antenna, nabbing motorists as they crest the top.
The car odometer read 3.7 MILES from the initial alert. Google Earth tends to agree, coming in at 3.91 MILES.
I was really considering picking up a 9500CI. Now? In memory of Charleton Heston, you'll have to pry this V1 out of my cold dead hands.
Conclusion: If only the humidity would stay this low, and every day was 73 and breezy. I don't think it gets any better.
Also, watch the truckers. There was a line about 7 deep all in the right line going 60 / 65MPH up the hill. They knew what was up.
