According to the microscopic GPS unit planted within a carefully machined US nickel received by Dan in change from a 7-11 when he purchased a 20 oz. Dr. Pepper, our intrepid travellers are currently in Franklin county and have notched 56 out of 88 counties. They are 42 minutes ahead of schedule and have travelled 799.4 miles.
That's the good news. The bad news is, my OHP mole has reported through his Morse Code-transmitting wristwatch that a vehicle matching the description of that being used by our heroes (his exact words: a red van) has been detained on a trumped-up charge of exceeding the speed limit somewhere near Columbus. Of course, no ticket was issued because that would create a paper trail. Their motives are far more sinister than to cost Jay $75 and 2 points on his license.
