To make the long story short...I just got home putting about 2000 miles on my new baby. Left a couple of moons ago, odometer showed 875 miles. Dallas -> Oklahoma City -> Whichta -> Denver ->:D Winter Park -> Colorado Spring -> Armarillo -> Whichta Falls -> Dallas. Odometer shows 2,850 now. Tired and happy...Between 90 and 100 mph most of the time. Went up to 120 mph somewhere near Texas and New Mexico border:thumb: I took a picture with one hand holding the wheel, hope it comes out OK. Too tired to type now.....Zzzz

Around Xmas 98 I got to drive on about maybe 3 miles of the Blue Ridge Parkway near Asheville before we had to get off because they had closed it (winter weather). That area was beautiful and the first time I had ever seen snow and mountains in my life.

You don't know fun (hah) till you've driven on Highway 49 south of Yosemite in California. That road is just evil. I wish I had the bimmer when I decided to take that road.

Hairpin turns right on the edge of cliffs :thumb:

Yes, its a site, the parkway is now all open finally, its been closed i sections since last year due to snow... the Cali drive you are talking about, maybe one day I can see that one :)

California is great for awesome scenic/fun drives. I mentioned Highway 49 but there are an infinite amount of roads there that have "hairpin turns right on the edge of cliffs."

If you ever get a chance to do a round-about tour of California, I highly recommend it. I was lucky that I got to live there (miss it a lot). If I flew in I'd probably want to shell out the cash to rent a sports car for the drive as opposed to a dodge neon at rent a wreck ;)

If you drive from the east there -- be careful on the interstates -- my car got ripped a new one in Wyoming by semi trucks machine-gunning pebbles at me with their tires :bawling:
