Default We're not even home yet....

From 40 MPG to hottie blondes, to cars killing in traffic, worst driving conditions i've seen, rounds of tequila, guiness, and free desserts, and Marty and I finding heaven under a bridge in Wisconsin, it'* been fun

Too bad you aren't here in the hall! Listening to curious moaning, coming from the huge suite.....

Welp, we are home so thats all good. Hooked up with a BMW 730iL through New York and Pennsylvania and we averaged about 92. He turned off presumedly for gas/food so we treked on alone until we hooked up with a Ford 150 when we go into Ohio. Stayed with him doing 80 almost all the way home, did the 7 hour trip in 5.5, not bad allthough my MPG sucked, only got 22 because I let the AFC on and doing the high MPH runs. Saw a TON of 04 GP'* on the road and a fair amount of Bonnies but only 1 other SSEi it was driven by an old couple doing 65 :(

Anyhow, it was a blast and I shall endevour to elaborate more in other posts. Jim! thanks for hosting us out of towners and for setting up the mod day and dinner out. It was great to meet everyone and look forward to more meets.
