FatDog- Thanks for the info- I've known about this for over 3 years, but like baddwalk, I think you'd be pretty pressed to find a cop that knew about it, or even cared (you'd be really lucky if he/she had a 15k coach without the required endorsement!). Also, for all that I see in my 40 mile commute to work, there aren't enough of them out there to catch everyone they should. Must be a budget thing.
CyberVet- I couldn't echo your thoughts on Utah enough- we have found "heaven", and it's only a few miles from Cedar City...Highway 12, just 30 miles south of Torrey...if you've got a Jeep, and good lungs, this place is for you! So Cal is for the birds (darn- my job's still here- gotta work on that, but only two years to retirement @ 50yo!).
