I'm in. How could I miss the opportunity to break my 242 hundreds of miles away from home? I'm getting bored with breaking it here.

This year our DL will be properly low. Pretty excited. A few housekeeping tasks to knock out and we should be good to go.

There will be the usual Saturday stuff going on for sure, breakfast at Niello, drive, BBQ at Walter's. Probably some shens at various places as well I'd ASSume...

FYI, reservations are open!

Well that’s about the coolest thing ever. Please bring squeaky cheese.

I'm not sure if cheese will retain its squeak for week, but I can give a try and fly by a cheese store for sure.



(maybe)

Drive route test-run today, should get us away from traffic except one small area. Added about 40 miles to the previous run as well, should work out pretty nice, and there's one stretch of road that's really quiet usually, surface isn't great, but the curves curve and the traffic doesn't traffic. ;)

Should be able to make the run on a single tank. It's only 120 miles and there's E85 right by Niello so you can fill before we head off.
