You know I might just take you up on that...I'll swing by for my free oil change some time

I'll be doing the trip again in Feb I already have a list of people as long as my arm to see in just about every town on the way down I might have to take a few extra days, I'll not be sort of coffee and tea though.

by cheating, more or less. i just view the area of interest in google earth, and hit the "print screen" button on my keyboard. i then opened powerpoint, hit "paste" (print screen basically copies the image of whatever is on your screen) then then right clicked the newly pasted image. I selected "save as picture" and saved it as a jpeg. then uploaded it. there's probably an easier way but this is just what i do.

20,000mi on biodiesel and counting!
