Hooked George to the teardrop this morning to see if the new brakes and controller worked well together. They do. Sorry, no pic of that encounter.  BUT, George took the bits in his mouth and ran.  West about 50 mile or so.  Sure was hard to not keep following Hwy 82 to the mountains and beyond.  Soon.

    Up to 1560 for the year.   Go George!

Added 140 miles over the last couple of days.  Puts me at 370 for the year so far.

Went out to run errands today as it was 70 degrees again after an early morning of rain again!

Stopped by my boys house to let the dog out and cruised on home for supper.

Shot this before parking back in the garage.

Chalked up a few more miles locally attending a car show fund raiser.

Got rained out by noon but... 

Had plans to get the Cougar out of storage anyway.

The Skyhawk is presently just shy of 100 miles now after some running around town.  The forecast for the next several days is all sunshine, so hopefully I can work in some shakedown miles prior to pointing south for Oklahoma.

With my last trip to a Car Show in London, Ontario my total (according to the trip odometer) is now 647.2 miles for this years challenge.

Surviving what I believe was a tornado on the way home and with the car running with no issues, feeling I will meet this years challenge (touch wood).

Small trip to the Historic town of Amherstburg last night to go for ice cream.

It was coolish being on the water and only 65 degrees so left the top up and the heat on during the trip home.

The hot fudge treat special was great!

At roughly 1320 miles for the year on the Skyhawk, so we should complete the challenge on Monday.

@Buicknutty did for sure with his Electra.

 

The question is, after this trip, how many miles can I put on another one.  If I were to attend the Heartland Regional, that would be about a 900 mile round trip.

Drove about 200 rt miles this Fathers Day, Athens GA to Greenville SC to see my son Jordan and grand baby Etta.

Car performed wonderfully. So far since I’ve started the challenge, 940 miles.

Nice to see Etta and Chiquita, I mean Southern Belle, getting along so well.

 

I’ve got 85.8 miles to achieve the challenge and will wrap it up tomorrow morning.
