New Record Today...

Dallas, TX to Santa Fe, NM: 7hrs and 20 mins (622 miles.) This does include the hour gained going from CST to MST. So in reality it was 8hrs and 20 mins. Listening to Fall Out Boy's new album I burned helped. It is as good as the latest Linkin Park is low mediocre. Kudos to XM comedy channels as well as Patty Loveless.

You must have been humming at a fair click!

I did 630 kms today in 7 hours with 2 half hour stops for coffee/food (so it was 6 hours).

I will not bore anyone with what I was listening to (because it bored me).

When I was 22 I drove my Mom's Olds 98 from their house in Marathon Key FL to mine in Roanoke Virginia, straight through with 4 stops for gas and bathroom usage. Mom had packed me sandwiches and had a cooler full. Left Marathon at 0500 in the morning and arrived home at 1930. I was pumped, natural high as I loved (still do) driving so much, did not get to sleep until past midnight.

There was a time when I95 was a joy to drive along the eastern seaboard. I am not as familiar with I77 which I presume you would have taken. The trip around Charlotte looks like a bit of a bottleneck.

Those were the days.

speaking of records...

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) - Kentucky's Andre Woodson set a major college record Saturday night for consecutive passes without an interception, breaking the mark of 271 held by Fresno State's Trent Dilfer.

Woodson broke the record in the second quarter with his 15th pass against Arkansas. Woodson dropped back and, with nobody open, threw the ball away toward the right sideline. He tied the record on that same drive by dumping the ball off over the middle to running back Rafael Little for an 11-yard gain.

current streak is 295, wow!

Back in 2001. My wife & myself traveled from Altus, OK to Miami Beach, FL in 22 hours..EXCLUDING the hour for time change so it was 21 hours.
1612 miles one way. We did this in our 1997 Bonneville SSEi & @100MPH we were getting 26 MPG(upraged ignition, exhaust, intake, ect..).

We also did Altus to Colorado Springs in a tick over 6 hours. 520 miles one way. I miss that car.

In 2 years we put 85,000 on that car. Only problem ever was the crank angle sensor.
