    At least you had AC to keep you cool for the trip home. I know Stretch was thankful for his AC at the 4th of July party a few years ago.

    I drove to the Georgia BBQ in July 2010 with no AC in a gen 1. It was very very hot. And Dion kept getting out of his car wearing a coat because "his AC was too cold". One of the most fun road trips ever! I have AC now, it's much better that way.



    Great video jdeft! I didn't realize that was you when we met on Thursday. Good times.

    I am a fan of road trips of all kinds. Hot, cold, boring? Yep, I've done it too; It's not where you go but how you get there and who you hang with. This trip was great for meeting so many of the people on the forums. Gonna have to re-up my VCA membership....

    We just got back from a trip to the Maggie Valley area. Spent about 4 days down there with a couple of Stangs and a Z06. Had a blast driving the dragon, diamondback, Cherohala Skyway, Blue Ridge Parkway and Moonshiners Run. Too bad I live so far away, I think we drove 2350 miles in about 6 days but it was well worth it.

    ^ Too bad you couldn't work that Maggie Valley trip to coincide with the TOD gathering. It's a good time and a fun place to meet other owners and posters here.


    Cheers
