tyup:About highway robbery in the US. There’s nothing of such. OP is just trying to create suspense in his story painting Nigerian picture of what usually takes place on lonely highways especially in Nigeria. People don’t go about with cash in the US. What would a highway robber steal? They only rob stores where they can get cash.

tyup:Google is your friend. Google Speed radar. There are two or more types. Hand held and mounted ones. There are also cameras, which they can monitor traffic on screens from the comfort of their cars in a remote allay

onegig:to be candid with you, after reading the entire OP travlogue, I concluded he is simply stupid.
People who are desperate for money always plan ahead and consider alternatives

jaxxy:no coloration to it. Being stupid is being stupid. I just hope he wasn't stupid enough to send the car down to 9ja

If he did he wud definitely fix or replace the engine for the client bt that wasn’t really his fault also. I still admire alot about this guy despite all this, he simply made a mistake in judgment, learnt and is sharing for others to learn. That is very admirable and we are learning from it. There are alot of positives to take from this than just ridiculing him. We all make mistakes and learn. Hopefully we don’t make so serious ones.

Google will not give you everything plus US can adjust Google to paint their country good & well to the world
type how safe Nigeria is Google will only tell you to avoid the North but wount tell you how kidnapping is common In the south west and how Rivers is now a bloodbath. so I know I'm not wrong asking the question here.
Lastly, people learn faster from their pairs not online

Oh, let them go ahead and ridicule him. What did you think drew me to this post in the first place? Sometimes all publicity whether positive or negative is publicity. So ride on!
|Re: Escaping Death: My Journey Through America by Hadampson(m): 9:42am On Aug 24, 2019|
I presume your home is NIGERIA. Seems you are used to hardship if not, you wouldn't have made that statement.
Just imagine, with all the killings going on in Nigeria, you still take the country as HOME. To each his own sha.

tyup:You can’t even thank me for the one I explained to you. Now you want to learn from your peers
|Re: Escaping Death: My Journey Through America by yahamisu: 1:49pm On Aug 24, 2019|
@tyup : there is no such thing as highway robbery in every part of the world i have personally been to so far, except Nigeria. to your second question.: as for speeding, its all a personal thing cos even with the use of navigation apps like WAZE, sometimes you dont see the police or camera ahead since its a user fed app. just drive with caution or get pulled over and given a ticket.
@revolva : thank you for seeking to purchase a car from me but am sorry i cant receive money from a person i dont know in person, will have to know you through a reference. sorry about that bro.... I've had too much negative experiences. hope you find what you looking for.
@raysleek .... @ onegig .....@gidiwoodsman .....and similar comments : Well, if dealers start buying normal american standard cars with legal inspection then, no one will be able to afford a car in naija except for our criminal minded politicians. every car you see shipped to naija, is either high millage or accident and trust me, we go through a lot to get those deals even though the profit margin is low, spend alot on logistics and Nigerians always trouble us with payments.
Finally, as for those who say am desperate and stupid, well, you might be right to an extent but if you come to America with no one to stand for you on anything, you will toughen up, be a man and make things happen but as i said in the begining, something kept pushing me and after all the troubles, i even lost money on the transaction but the experience is worth more than a million dollars and you will see my reason in my conclusion.

From the moment i stopped, I knew this was it and all i could think of was how to communicate my last words to my wife, my kids, my mother and my siblings (I DON ENTER).
It was a struggle walking around the car to see if its an easy pile of snow which i could clear with my hands to free up all 8 tires but apparently, the snow fell all night and even though there are snow plows working all night, very heavy winds continually blow the snow around and now, the road is icy. Mind you, the wind in that section of the highway, passes through a vacuum-like corridor and blows out with high pressure, having enough strength to blow away 18 wheeler trailers like like toys.
Watch this on youtube to see what am saying, .(watch how the truck is skidding to the side at most points, you either see vehicles/trailers tipped over from the wind or they park by the side for hours unending, waiting for it to get better.)
Suddenly, i heard a loud horn, with tires screeching towards me. the trailer missed me by a few inches cos the visibility was almost non. even though i heard and saw a gimps of the oncoming heavy duty barely seconds before the driver halted, i couldnt move an inch. (you cant walk/run on ice)...
I was able to find my way towards the trailer and climb to his window, first i saw him breathing hard from fear of almost clearing me off the road, then this conversation occurred ...
Truck driver : Nigga you done lost your mind or something (in a very angry tone).
Me : thank you soo much for stopping(ignoring the obvious fact that i scared the living daylight out of him by appearing out of no where)
Truck driver : maaaaaan i aint stop for your black ass, i danm near killed you man
Me : Thank goodness you didnt. pleeeeeease help pull me out of the snow, ma engine is still running
Truck driver : sorry man, i aint got no chains
Me: its my lucky day, i got 4 chains in ma trunk
Truck driver : uuuuhhhmmm....sorry i cant
Me: come on man, i can die in less than an hour in this cold please help me. its freezing out here
Truck driver : naaaaaah sorry i cant .(shaking his head in the negatory)
Me: total silence
So, i stepped down from the window side and he drove off. my mouth started shaking from the cold as my tooth was clinging. my knees shaking, my ears numb with no feel. my beard started freezing up and everything just got blank for some seconds.
to be continued...
(pic below...better roads ahead)

@yahamisu, I understand how this started. The allure of a $2000 deal was too good to not try. I salute your courage and spirit.
Would love to know how this deal concluded.

Insult o.p all you want! @yamisu I must commend you big time, U ARE FREAKING HARDCORE MEEEENNNN
Believe me when I say i know that spirit and feeling, it takes a lot of gut and heart to get somethings done in life.Not everyone would be blessed to become someone/rich/famous/comfortable through easy means.
I'm yet to know the conclusion of your story,but with you just getting out of bed and in just few hours making a huge decision that would put some dollar in your pocket,to me it's a WOOW and wonderfully impressive.
At the end of the day it either make u or break u. (U either profit or lose). But one thing is for sure u would learn from it.
To me it's not stupidity,its risk and in business risk are involved. Like I said earlier I know that spirit,and that's the MIND OF A HUSTLER The suspense dey kill me o,I'm eager to know the outcome of your ordeal
|Re: Escaping Death: My Journey Through America by tyup(m): 5:47pm On Aug 24, 2019|

Your story is the American dream of just about anyone living here...the tales of hustlers esp immigrants ever since from the founding fathers.
Take it easy and don't cut too much corners to make big profits...may the road ahead be smooth!
