IIRC Montana has a 100 mph limit for rural highways (of which there >are a few in Montana... ;-) and there are parts of Nevada with *no* posted >limit. > Montana just changed their law to reflect the rest of the country's standards (or lack thereof). There are now enforced maximums of 75 on all 4-lane and 65 on all 2-lane highways. And they have been very clear that these WILL be enforced. Nevada has speed limits everywhere, although you may go a long time between signs that indicate what it is. But you'll know as soon as you see that big Chevy coming up behind you. FYI, a lot of states here in the West use aircraft, so you may find a welcoming committee waiting for you where you least expect it, never having seen anything in your mirror and having gotten no warning from your radar detector.
