San Marcos isn't a backwater town, it's a college town full of hippies and all sorts of counterculture types. I've never had the first problem with any cops in the hill country. Salamander, you or someone in your clan must have done something really stupid to piss them off. You might want to be aware of something that would normally be pretty obvious to most people- Texans are very proud of their state and culture. If you trash-talk Texas to a normal Texan, you can pretty much expect an ass whoopin. If you're stupid enough to broadcast your whiny attitude to a COP, I have no pity for what happened to you. Also, San Marcos is about a 40 min. drive south of Austin. Did you miss the capital city or something?
just cause theres a college and a few guys with fauxhawks doesn't mean its noty a small town homie! and no...no one in the carwas stupi9d enough to mouth off to a quacking cop or offer up a...at that time nonexiostent... negative opinon of texas, texans or there over inflated semse of selfworth! and you right....san marcos is about half an hour from austin but as i thought the name of this thraed indicates....we weree taking going outta our way...you know, backroads... in an affort to skirt the cop congestion on the more direct routes!
