When I drove up that way to Montreal last summer I found it was so nice/relaxing up that way that my foot magically lightened up.. I know where you're coming from..
Mark me down as a tentative "Yes"..
PS. I have some motorola talkabouts. When we convoyed down to DC last year they really came in handy - Grouping people back together after tolls, pointing out cool stuff, spotting milfs, etc..
