Were both doin’ Wan’s “impossible-is-nothing” stance…lol.

I was saving this one for today’s post – I GOT PULLED OVER BY A COP!!! I was about 6 miles from Florida and I heard a siren.
The Officer was very nice about it…but I am still not clear about what law I was breaking. It was one of those extremely complicated “you can’t have your MOPED on anything other than a dirt-road or field laws”…lol.

Officer: You can’t have your moped on a Georgia state road.
Me: I’m sorry. Are there any secondary roads near-by?
Officer: No.
Me: It’s only six miles to Florida…can I ride the burm?
Officer: No.
Me: (smiling) Ok…can I ride through those fields over there?
Officer: (smiling) It’s only six miles to the state line…move along.

YES! My Jedi mind powers are working!!!!

I saw two signs that I thought were metaphors for my journey:

I gotta break that grip.
