Wow, you averaged 89 miles an hour, even with going through a mini-blizzard?
Now that's hard-core!
I was up around 100mph through Utah and Nevada. There isn't a lot around there, and when you have the highway to yourself... well...
I can't remember what the limits were in Wyoming, but in Nebraska it's 75 and you can pretty easily get away with 85...ish. Especially out west.
I took it down to around 70 through the blizzard.
It's important to remember that "18 hours" is an estimate, and may not represent the actual factual time I spent on the road. It could have been a few more hours.
