My average time running that route is 2.5 hours. Why Google Maps thinks it takes almost 4 is beyond me. I got a speeding ticket on the 82 in the past, but never on the Vantage.....

No pigs. A few fields, but most of the space around the Vantage highway is DOE land. Late night is the best time. You can see headlights for miles in the distance.

I did have a bird strike in my friend's Subaru many years ago at 110 MPH. It hit right near the top of the roof/windshield interface. I got lucky. Had that bird been any lower, it probably would have shattered the windshield big time.
