Ofer, I heard you were there, I just didn't get a chance to meet up. Maybe next year.
Life's journey is not to arrive at the grave safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, totally worn out, shouting "Holy shit, what a ride!"

(was that you bluetooth-ss?)

Today, I started the return leg of my trip.
After 530 miles driven today, I am in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

Once I get home, I will have traveled at least 5300 miles.
Yep that was me.Saw the abm from way back caught up and saw your Cali tags and thought wow he's going the long way home.

Think the record was set at C5F 1 by El Diablo 8900 miles from Fort St John BC to Valdosta GA.

I got lucky, I only had a 220 mile drive from the IL side of the St. Louis metro area. I live right off I-70 and literally had a straight shot there!

Walk softly, carry a light saber and drive a ZL1!
