How in the hell else could you say it? (with all those subtleties) Di[AT SYMBOL GOES HERE]nIs preston[AT SYMBOL GOES HERE] It means something like this: I am about to with no compunction or hesitation and with gusto and/or directness transport you by vehicle to Louisville. Any other native speakers got any better translations for the South and South Midlands handicapped?
