Well today was a successful 12 hours of driving the jeep :)

She did very well, although going up those grades were rather tough for her.
I did get her up to 95 going down a grade :) that was exciting! Didn't wana talk her past that even tho it felt like she had more :)

nick50471 08-24-2010 11:24 PM

You'll have to stop and have Chicken fried steak at Wild Oats.

harwa004 08-24-2010 11:29 PM

Good luck and stay safe!!

Sekstrand3 08-25-2010 08:51 AM

Well I'm off on the road again!

Got 900 miles to drive today! And the first part is steep mountains that the Rubi hates going fast up =\ but once I hit Wyoming it's smooth sailing from there! :)

Yeah, I'd hate to live in the state that has (arguably) the most variety of all the states in the continental US, or the single largest stretch of coast line of any continental state. Yeah, thats a horrid place to live.:D
